Notre Dame opens as slight favorite vs. North Carolina

·1 min read

Back in August Notre Dame’s home game against North Carolina this Saturday night was seen as a potential top-10 matchup. Both teams were ranked in the preseason top-10 and some went as far to say the Tar Heels were a threat for the College Football Playoff.

Notre Dame’s home loss to Cincinnati to start October ended national title dreams for the Irish, but those were dashed a full month later than North Carolina’s were as the Tar Heels dropped their opener at Virginia Tech and are just 3-4 to date.

Notre Dame is knocking on the door to get back into the nation’s top-10 while North Carolina is doing whatever it can just to get bowl eligible after playing in the Orange Bowl last season.

Despite Notre Dame being 6-1 and the Tar Heels being under .500, the home-Irish are only a slight favorite according to Tipico Sportsbook.

Pointspread: Notre Dame -3.5
Moneylines: Notre Dame -175, North Carolina +140
Total: 62.5
