Pick: Notre Dame -3 (-115)
Saturday afternoon takes us to Clemson, South Carolina where Notre Dame will head south to play the Tigers of Clemson here in this week 10 matchup. Prior to the season starting everybody had this game pegged as a marquee matchup and a game that would have a significant impact on the college football playoff picture. However, it is week 10 of the college football season, and both of these teams are currently out of the playoffs, unless some type of chaos happens, and you can argue that Clemson is out regardless of what happens. Notre Dame will be looking to pick up their eighth victory of the season and keep their New Year’s Six bowl game hopes alive, while Clemson is just looking to get a crucial victory and get on track to finish the year.
It has been somewhat of a magical season for Notre Dame up until this point of the year. Unfortunately for them their college football playoff hopes were dashed by Louisville a few weeks ago, but Notre Dame still has the potential to compete in a major bowl game this season if they finish off the year strong. They finally got the quarterback they have been looking for over the last several seasons and Sam Hartman, and it is honestly sad that he will not get an opportunity to show how he plays on a national stage like the playoffs.
This Notre Dame team is constructed well enough that they could’ve potentially competed for a national championship if they could’ve stayed the course and remained in contention throughout the remainder of the regular season. Notre Dame has been riding high ever since they lost to Louisville and they are coming off of a blowout victory against Pittsburgh. They will be looking to take down Clemson once again, as this series has turned into a bit of a budding rivalry over the last several seasons. Notre Dame comes into this game with perhaps some of the best cornerbacks in the entire country so the Clemson offense will have to be smart about their play calling and if not, they will get burnt by the likes of this Notre Dame defense and it will be a long night for the Tigers.

Clemson had plenty of expectations coming into this season, and it was all knocked off of the train tracks when they were upset by Duke in the opening game of the year. Ever since then they have just seemingly been unable to get back on track and they now come into this game in a situation they have not faced in a very long time. Clemson finds themselves only three losses away from missing out on a ball game this season, which is unusual for a team, has been competing for national championships for the entirety of the past decade.
They will be looking for a massive statement victory to swing some momentum in their favor, heading into the final few weeks of the regular season here on Saturday afternoon at home against Notre Dame. Quarterback Cade Klubnik cannot afford to make mistakes against a defense of this caliber, otherwise it will be a very long night for Clemson and Dabo Sweeney. Clemson comes into this game with four victories to their name on the season, and they are coming off of a game against the NC State Wolfpack, where they dropped their second consecutive road game of the season. They will be hoping to break a two game losing streak as they return home for this game against Notre Dame. I’m here on Saturday afternoon.
Betting trends to consider in this matchup:
- Notre Dame has won 2 of 3 against Clemson
- Clemson is 0-1 against ranked teams this season
- Notre Dame is 4-2 after a win this season
I expect this to be a close and competitive game throughout the majority of the contest. However, in the end, I look for Notre Dame’s defense to make the necessary plays to pull away and grab themselves a crucial victory on the road in Clemson here on Saturday afternoon. Most years, this would be a showdown between two of the top 10 teams in the country, but with Clemson inefficiencies on the offensive side of the football, I think it will come back to haunt them in this game against Notre Dame.As always, get our VIP Pick Free Tonight by Clicking Here!
