College Consensus Pick Week 6
College Public Betting Picks Report: Irish are Being Overlooked
The college football consensus report for the week covers a long list of college football games and usually it is the lower tiered games that should get a second look. But in Week 6 of the college football season it is a high profile game that is getting the looks. It is not the big SEC games featuring LSU vs Florida and Georgia vs South Carolina, but a game that features the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.
They were trailing the North Carolina State Wolfpack and mounted a nearly impossible come back and had outstanding quarterback play that would be hard for any team to duplicate. The Hurricanes are playing great within conference but that conference is the ACC. While the ACC is a quality conference with solid football teams, it does not match the level of other well respected conferences.
The Notre Dame Fighting Irish is a step above in talent and they have a tremendous home field advantage. Head Coach Brian Kelly has this team playing at a different level. They are playing solid defense and beating top-ranked opponents which is why they are among the best in college football this year. The oddsmakers see that and have listed the Irish as 12.5 point favorites.
The public bettors saw this double-digit number and ran to get in on the Canes at this price. The game against the Wolfpack has inspired the public to gobble up the points without looking at the matchup. The Notre Dame Fighting Irish outclasses the Canes at nearly every position but the most glaring is defense.
If the Canes allowed the Wolfpack offense to march up and down the field, the Irish offense will have a field day and should be able to dominate this game and easily cover the number.
