NCAA Football Predictions have been winning at a 75.6% rate and will continue to the 2016 BCS Title game in January 2016. The (10-2) and ninth-ranked Notre Dame Fighting Irish, who are Independents, will be in the “GAND CANYON STATE” for their BattleFrog Fiesta Bowl contest. Notre Dame takes on the (11-1) and number-5 Ohio State Buckeyes of the big Ten East Division. Game time is at 1:00 PM EST on the ESPN Television Network. The teams will play at University of Phoenix Stadium home of the NFL Cardinals in Glendale, Arizona. The game is on Friday, January 1st, 2016. The Best Sports Handicapper believes Head Coach Brian Kelley is slowly winning over the Notre Dame Alumni and Boosters. The Ohio State Buckeyes football team are going to try to end a disappointing season on a winning note. The opening line has Ohio State as a six and a half-point Favorite Against The Spread at a neutral venue. The Betting Odds total is 56′-points for Friday’s game.
The 2015-16 Notre Dame Fighting Irish BCS playoff chances went down on a last second game winning field goal at Stanford on November 28th. Notre Dame also lost at top-ranked Clemson in early October. The Irish will be without two starters in the secondary in their contest vs. Ohio State. Safety Max Redfield sent home for violating team rules, and cornerback Devin Butler broke a bone in his football earlier in the week. It’s not a big deal for the Fighting Irish, a team that lost starting quarterback Malik Zaire in the second game of the season. True Freshman and Toledo, Ohio native DeShone Kizer is filling in admirably. It is going to be a battle at the position next season with Kizer having the edge. The Notre Dame Fighting Irish strength is on the offensive and defensive line which is why the Irish are 11-2 this season. Notre Dame Wide Reciever Will Fuller is one of the top playmakers in all of College Football and must find a way to get open against a talented Ohio State secondary. Notre Dame is thrilled to be in Arizona; I’m not so sure about Friday’s opponent.
The Ohio State Buckeyes shocked the World by winning the inaugural BCS Playoffs last season. The team looked like they were going through the motions this year. Head Coach Urban Meyer is aware that his team felt a sense of entitlement in the regular season. Ohio State was lethargic most of the season, and it came crashing down in a crucial home loss to Michigan State. Running Back Ezekial Elliot, the 2015 BCS Most Valuable Player felt the need to bash the coaching staff after the loss to MSU. The All-American back also lost millions of dollars for the comment, NFL scouts and executives heard every word. The Buckeyes rebounded in the regular season with a dominating performance against rivals Michigan. What Buckeyes team is going to show up Friday in Phoenix? Do they want to be in this football game? Ohio State has more talent than Notre Dame; they must prove it on the field.
Notre Dame is 1-4-1 Against The Point Spread their last six vs. The Big Ten Conference.
Ohio State is 4-0 ATS their last four on a neutral site.
