Duke Blue Devils at Notre Dame Fighting Irish: ND -20; Total 54.5
The Duke Blue Devils face a difficult opening game of the season on the road in South Bend to face the No.1o ranked Notre Dame Fighting Irish. The Blue Devils last season were 5-7 overall and 3-6 ATS versus opponents in the ACC. The Blue Devils will have a new quarterback under center as Chase Brice, a graduate transfer from Clemson will start. Duke has a lot of returning players on both sides of the line of scrimmage but lacks talented skill-position players. Notre Dame on the other hand is expected to battle for a national championship. The Fighting Irish were 11-2 last season and star quarterback Ian Book returns. Notre Dame also has what is considered the best offensive line in all of college football. The skills position players are for the most part new at Notre Dame but under the tutelage of quarterback Book will come up to speed very quickly. Notre Dame wins big at home on Saturday 40-7.
