Notre Dame Fighting Irish -9.5

Pittsburgh quarterback Kenny Pickett sat out in the loss to Miami and if the signal caller is unable to go due to an ankle injury the Pittsburgh offense will have a hard time moving the ball against the Notre Dame defense. Notre Dame has covered the number in six of its last nine and is coming off a hard-fought win over Louisville. Pittsburgh has failed to cover eight of its last nine overall and will fail to cover on Saturday against Notre Dame. Final Score Prediction, Notre Dame Fighting Irish win and cover ATS 27-10.
