It is always tough to handicap games that feature bigger schools going against much lesser opposition, as you never really know how motivated a team might be to run up the score. In games such as these, it’s not uncommon to see the bigger school start putting in 2nd and 3rd string guys once things start getting out of hand, which potentially has an impact on your wagers. It’s all about weighing the spread and the totals to try and figure out just how one-sided things might get before all is said and done. That is what we will be trying to do here, with Central Michigan travelling to South Bend to face #9 ranked Notre Dame in what is likely to be a blowout loss for the Chippewas. As it stands at the moment, the Irish are favored by 34 points, with the point total for this one set at 54. Let’s dive in and see if we can make some college football winning picks.

Why bet on the Central Michigan Chippewas
The Chippewas come into this game sitting at 1-1 on the season. They started things out on the road to Michigan State, falling 31-7 in that one before grinding out a 45-42 win over New Hampshire in an absolute thriller last weekend. The fact of the matter is that these games are big, but not as big as the Mid-American Conference matchups that will come later in the season. Games like these, though, as a good way to prepare for those coming battles. The month of September tends to be rough for the Chippewas, who have gone just 6-14 SU in their last 20 games played in the opening month of the season. Over the course of their last 10 games, Central Michigan has covered just twice, which includes going 0-5 ATS in road games. They have seen the total go OVER in 5 of their last 7 overall.

Why bet on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish
It’s easy to forget that the Irish have actually played a game more than mist teams, as they crossed the pond to open the season in Ireland in Week 0. They won that one in rather comfortable fashion, which is actually the same story for all 3 games that they have played this season, with the Irish covering the spread in all 3 games. That includes covering as a 49-point favorite against Tennessee State a couple of weeks back, which makes the point spread here look a whole lot more manageable. With those wins, Notre Dame has now won 9 of their last 10 games, while also going a solid 17-3 SU at home in their last 20. They have covered in 5 of their last 6 overall and are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games played in the month of September. The OVER has hit in 9 of the last 10 for Notre Dame.

Expert Pick and Series Prediction
This should be a rather straightforward win for the Irish, with the point spread being the main thing to concern ourselves with here. I think they cover in rather easy fashion, and I also like the point total to go OVER.
