When No. 16 Syracuse hosts No. 5 Clemson in its home opener, the Orange will be looking to bounce back from their first loss of the season, which came at the hands of No. 5 Clemson.
When playing at home, the Orange have been a profitable team to bet on, covering the spread in nine of the last 11 home games (an 81.8 percent success rate). At home this season, Syracuse is undefeated straight up (SU) and against the spread (ATS), posting a perfect 5-0 record. The Orange will host an Irish team that is coming off a thrashing of UNLV by a score of 44-21 at JMA Wireless Dome.
In spite of the fact that they have won four of their last five games, Notre Dame is only an underdog for the second time this year. The Irish are undefeated against the spread (ATS) in their last five games against teams from the ACC, including their 45-32 victory as an underdog against North Carolina in Week 4.

Since the line first opened with Syracuse as a home favorite of 2.5 points against Notre Dame, it has moved to its current position with the Orange being favored by a margin of only 1.5 points.
In five of the seven games that he has played, quarterback Garrett Shrader has thrown for multiple touchdowns. He has also been outstanding on the ground, rushing for 71 yards or more on four separate occasions. There is a good chance that Shrader will score against an Irish defense that allows 26.6 points per game on average.
Running back Sean Tucker, a sophomore, has rushed for 99.7 yards per game on average and will go up against a Notre Dame defense that gives up 138.3 yards on the ground per game on average. When they play the Irish, Tucker and Shrader, who have each rushed for six touchdowns so far this season, have a good chance of finding the end zone again.
The quarterback for Notre Dame, Drew Pyne, has a respectable ratio of touchdown passes to interceptions of 12:3, and under his direction, the Irish have won four of their last five games. Michael Mayer, the team’s tight end, leads the team in receptions (44), receiving yards (526), and receiving touchdowns. As a result, the team places a significant amount of emphasis on Mayer (2).
The prolific Payne-Mayer connection could have trouble passing the ball against a Syracuse defense that allows 171.4 yards through the air on average per game and ranks 10th in the nation in pass defense.
The Orange are favored by reputable money to win their sixth consecutive game at home this season by heavily relying on Tucker and Shrader on the ground and grinding out the victory.
BET: Syracuse is favored by 1.5. (-118)
