Cincinnati vs Notre Dame Prediction & College Football Odds for Week 5
- Both teams will have over 300 yards of total offense
- Cincinnati will be able to score over 28 points
- Notre Dame will struggle to stop the Cincinnati offense
The Cincinnati Bearcats and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish meet on Saturday afternoon in a Top 10 matchup. Cincinnati comes in 3-0 this year so far while Notre Dame sits at 4-0 with a big win over Wisconsin last weekend. This is going to be a dogfight and both teams are ready for it as they look to boost their resume for a bid into the College Football Playoff.
Cincinnati is looking to throw out a balanced offense while Notre Dame has been pass-heavy so far this year. Cincinnati is going to be really solid on the defensive end as well and Notre Dame is fairly solid as well. Look for both of these teams to try and limit the big play as those have hurt both of these teams.

Cincinnati vs Notre Dame Prediction: Spread
Cincinnati has had no problem moving the ball this season as they have averaged 420 yards per game this year. Notre Dame has struggled to stop the pass and that is what Cincinnati excels at. This is going to be a game where if Notre Dame is able to stop the pass they could win this game. However, Cincinnati’s strength is Notre Dame’s weakness so Cincinnati should cover.
- Free Prediction: Cincinnati -1.5
Cincinnati vs Notre Dame Prediction: MoneyLine
While I do think Cincinnati will win this game, I think the best bet is on Notre Dame’s moneyline. Notre Dame is not the favorite in a Top 10 game at home and that causes me some pause. I think you should put a unit on Notre Dame outright because they have a very good shot to win the game.

This game should be a game that sees quite a bit of scoring. These teams are averaging a combined 78 points a game while giving up a combined 38 points a game. These teams score a lot of points and have their struggles on the defensive end at times. I look for this to be a high-scoring contest.
