No respect. Easy motivation right there.

 

I hope it motivates but I don’t think it is disrespectful either. 10 isn’t a bad line and if you do the numbers on paper Clemson is better by yards. ND has done a hell of a lot with a hell of a lot less for sure. It is actually astounding the gap in recruiting between the other CFP bound teams and ND.

10.5 opening is a huge line. It says the gap between the teams is pretty wide according to the bettors.

It just means the majority of people are betting on Clemson to win

 

Big games like this also bring out more bettors who don't usually bet on games (i.e., uninformed bettors). So, while more money is going on Clemson, it doesn't necessarily mean smart money is going on Clemson.

This is true. Also since the whole reason for the 10 point spread is to get people to bet both sides they are succeeding because I’m thinking about betting ND and wouldn’t be if the spread was just a little bit less.

Notre Dame historically would pull a lot of public money. That line being so big tells you a little more than just trying to even up books.

 

Having said that I thought the line was way high for the first game and it was bet down nearer to game time.
