Notre Dame vs Michigan Week 4 College Football Betting Odds

Filed under: NCAA Football Betting Odds |

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish can complete the sweep of the state of Michigan on Saturday night in Week 4 of college football, when they take on the Michigan Wolverines. Last week, the Fighting Irish went into East Lansing, and came out with a very impressive victory over the Michigan State Spartans. Now, Notre Dame takes on Michigan at home in prime time.

The Irish are off to their first 3-0 starts since the Tyrone WIllingham era almost a decade ago. But Notre Dame has so far proven that they are deserving of the most recent No.11 ranking in the Associated Press poll. Michigan State was a top-10 team, and the Irish went in and frankly dominated on defense en route to a 20-3 victory.

For Michigan, they have rebounded with consecutive wins over outmatched opponents following the embarrassing showing in the opener against Alabama. But quarterback Denard Robinson has found his groove once again, and has been making plays for the Wolverines offense all over the field.

Last year, this Michigan/Notre Dame matchup was arguably the game of the year, with the Wolverines coming out on top just about as time expired.

Can we expect something like that in South Bend this Saturday night?

Notre Dame vs Michigan Betting Odds available at BetOnline Sportsbook have set the Irish as touchdown favorites over the Wolverines, going off at seven points on the line. Oddsmakers obviously like the way that Notre Dame is playing, combined with the fact that they will get this one at home.

The Irish will need at least an eight-point victory at home to cover the the line, with Michigan covering with a loss by six points or less.

Against the spread, Michigan has had the upper hand of late, going 5-1 ATS in their last six matchups with Notre Dame. The underdog has also gone 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings, again with the edge going to the Wolverines. However, the home team has done a good job covering the line, going 4-1 in the last five.

This is one of four ranked games in Week 4 of college football, with coverage getting underway at 7:30pm ET on NBC.
