Why bet on The Buckeyes?

✅ The Buckeyes had an 11-2 record last season and bring back key offensive pieces like C.J. Stroud and TreVeyon Henderson, who put Ohio State in a better position to win in Week 1.
✅ Notre Dame is lacking the same continuity offensively, as they do not have an experienced quarterback for this marquee matchup.
✅ Ohio State is 6-4 against the spread in their last 10 games and are a good bet to make it 7-4 over their last 11.

Notre Dame Fighting Irish vs Ohio State Buckeyes

Notre Dame Fighting Irish

The Fighting Irish finished last season as the top independent team in college football with an 11-2 record. In their last game, they lost 37-35 in the Fiesta Bowl against the Oklahoma State Cowboys. 

Tyler Buchner recorded three touchdowns through the air and on the ground in limited action for the 2021-22 season. He will be the starting quarterback for Notre Dame to start this season. His top weapon could be Michael Mayer, who grabbed seven touchdowns last season at the tight end position for the Irish.

This is a big game for new Notre Dame head coach Marcus Freeman, who takes over the program after the departure of Brian Kelly for LSU. Freeman was previously the defensive coordinator for the Fighting Irish, and will look to prove that he is the right man for this job, even if there is plenty working against him in this particular game.

Eli Raridon (ACL injury), Pat Coogan (knee injury), Jadarian Price (Achilles injury), Mitchell Evans (foot injury), and Avery Davis (ACL injury) won’t participate in this game game. 

Ohio State Buckeyes 

The Buckeyes finished the 2021-22 season with an 11-2 record. They also won the Rose Bowl against the Utah Utes with a final score of 48-45.

QB C.J. Stroud and running back TreVeyon Henderson will lead the Buckeyes on offense. Stroud is considered to be a top-five quarterback in the country coming into this season, and will look to start his Heisman Trophy campaign on a positive note.  On defense, the Buckeyes surrendered 366.6 yards per game. Safety Ronnie Hickman made it to the top 50 in the country with 98 total tackles and two interceptions last season.

Mitchell Melton and Evan Preyor will be out for the season because of knee injuries. A knee injury also prevents Kamryn Babb from joining the team on Saturday.
