NCAA Football Betting: ND Fighting Irish vs. MI St Spartans

This Saturday, undefeated Notre Dame heads north to East Lansing, Michigan for an NCAA football betting affair with the Michigan State Spartans.

ABC will carry the National broadcast beginning at 3:30 ET from Spartan Stadium. After a 0-5 start to its 2007 campaign, Notre Dame is 2-0 heading into week-three, thanks to a harsh 35-17 slap in the face of hated rival Michigan.

College football betting fans backing the Irish as one-point underdogs were able to relax as QB Jimmy Clausen and company destroyed a poor Wolverines squad that turned the ball over six times, which included a 35-yard touchdown on a Brian Smith fumble recovery.

The crowd of 80-thousand plus at ND Stadium received the payback they so passionately desired, after UM handed the Irish a 38-0 loss last season. However, some viewed ND’s victory bittersweet; as the Irish improved to 1-1 against the NCAA odds, Head Coach, Charlie Weis tore both his left ACL and MCL after being hit by a player along the sidelines.

Weis stood on crutches while guiding his team to victory, after the game he made light of the situation by saying, “I feel like an athlete. First time in my life”. When you give a talented running back the chance to carry the ball more times in one game than he ever has previously, odds are, you’re in for a show; please welcome Sr. RB Javon Walker to the stage!

The Dayton, Ohio native carried the pigskin 43 times to total 282-yards on the ground with a pair of touchdowns in Michigan State’s 17-0 SU win against Florida Atlantic. Ringer accounted for over half of State’s total offense against the Owls, who are only in their eighth season as a collegiate football program.

While NCAA football betting followers watched Ringer collect the fourth highest single-game rushing total in school history, they were hardly pleased with the Spartans inability to cover the 18.5-point spread. The pointspread loss was MSU’s second in its first three games.

Here’s the good news though, State is 5-1 against the college football betting line in their last six contests following a SU win. Another installment of the Michigan State vs. Notre Dame feud will commence this Saturday afternoon with oddsmakers installing the Spartans 9-point home chalks with a game ‘total’ of 48.
