We ( http://www.lvsportsinsight.com/ ) like Notre Dame +10 and here is why
Brian Kelly has talked about opening up the playbook and throwing the ball downfield more in this game. Sophomore quarterback Everett Golson has progressed as a passer throughout the season and it seems like Kelly is ready to take the leash off of him. The Crimson Tide lost three members of their secondary to the NFL Draft last year and Notre Dame believes they can exploit Alabama's defensive backs. It will be key for Golson to move out of the pocket and extend plays in order to give his receivers more time to get open and potentially create some running lanes for himself.
Alabama's only loss came against Texas A&M but to their credit they only played one bad quarter. The Crimson Tide allowed the Aggies to take a 20-0 lead which ended up being too large of a deficit to overcome. Alabama started the game with two punts and an interception while A&M began with three consecutive touchdown drives. The Crimson Tide gave up 172 yards in the first quarter while only allowing 246 (yards) for the remaining three quarters so it's not like they played terrible against A&M, but nevertheless they could not dig themselves out of the hole.
