Betting Preview for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish vs Georgia Bulldogs Week 4 College Football Game on September 21 2019
Where: Sanford Stadium, Athens
When: Saturday, September 21, 2019, 8:00 PM ET
TV Broadcast: CBS
Betting on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish (2-0 Overall / 0-0 Conference)
The Fighting Irish got their second win in a row to start the season by taking care of business on Saturday against the New Mexico Lobos, 66-14. Notre Dame quarterback Ian Book went off for 360 passing yards and five touchdowns with zero interceptions on 15 of 24 completions. Book also led his team with 46 rushing yards and a touchdown on nine carries. Notre Dame’s passing attack got a big boost from a series of short passes by Book which were turned into big-yard gains by his receivers. Four Fight Irish wide receivers had at least 50-yard single-catch plays, including Javon McKinley, who had 85 receiving yards and two touchdowns on just a pair of receptions. Georgia presents a much tougher matchup for Book and the Fighting Irish, but Notre Dame’s athletic and quick receivers will be a constant threat for the Bulldogs’ defense. On defense, the Fighting Irish picked New Mexico three times and held the Lobos down to only 151 passing yards.
The Fighting Irish are 3-3 against the spread (ATS) in their last six games.
Betting on the Georgia Bulldogs (3-0 Overall / 1-0 Conference)
The Bulldogs are in for their true test of the season. After getting three straight wins with their eyes closed against weak programs, the Bulldogs will have to prove themselves against a legitimate strong team in the form of the Fighting Irish. In their last game, the Bulldogs mauled the Arkansas State Red Wolves for a 55-0 victory in Athens. Jake Fromm finished with 279 passing yards and three touchdowns on 17 of 22 pass completions while running back D’Andre Swift came up with 76 rushing yards on nine carries. Fromm is the focal point of Georgia’s offense, but the team’s ground attack could be key in defeating Notre Dame, which allowed 212 rushing yards and two touchdowns to New Mexico last week. Fromm can still work his magic in the pocket, especially with Notre Dame’s pass rush not being much of a threat in the New Mexico game with zero sacks to show.
The Bulldogs are 6-4 ATS in their last 10 home games.
Georgia wins, 31-27.
