Indiana weekend football betting primer: Notre Dame in tough spot vs. Navy

By Joe Rodgers, BetIndiana News

Early money is on Navy for Saturday’s game in South Bend, as Notre Dame opened an 11-point favorite and was bet against to -9 in the first 24 hours of wagering.

The Midshipmen boast a rush offense that can exploit the Irish’s weakness on defense. They bring a 7-1 straight-up record (6-2 against the spread) into Saturday’s contest and are 9-2-1 ATS in their last 12 games dating back to last season.
Ken Niumatalolo’s offense has earned the respect of quantitative football analysts, and the triple-option attack should worry Notre Dame, considering the Irish defensive line ranks poorly in advanced metrics. One advanced data set, SP+, makes Saturday’s spread just 4.2 in favor of Notre Dame, even factoring 2.5 points for homefield.
