Notre Dame is a slight favorite against Syracuse this weekend.

The Fighting Irish are favored by two points, according to the initial line set by Circa Sports. The total has been set at 45.5 points.

Notre Dame enters this contest coming off of a convincing win over UNLV in Week 8. The Fighting Irish are now 4-3 on the season and are on track to bowl eligibility.

A win over Syracuse would push Notre Dame one step closer in that direction. The Orange just suffered their first loss of the season last weekend against Clemson.

Syracuse played well defensively against the Tigers, but couldn’t get on the scoreboard in the second half. The Orange’s offense also wasn’t able to score any points off of four Clemson turnovers.

Notre Dame is 7-3 all-time against Syracuse. The Irish have won four straight meetings in this series.

Notre Dame and Syracuse will kickoff at 12:00 p.m. ET on Saturday.
