Camping World Bowl Picks
Let’s take a quick look at how each team stacks up in this matchup. Then, we’ll make our 2019 Camping World Bowl betting prediction.
Quarterback Ian Book might be playing in his final game for Notre Dame in this one, and he will be missed. Book has thrown 33 touchdown passes this season and will lead a terrific offense into this game.
Notre Dame averaged over 37 points per game this season, and it faced some tough competition. The Fighting Irish will have to find some defense in this game, but that hasn’t been an issue of late. Brian Kelly has another terrific team in South Bend.
Iowa State quarterback Brock Purdy threw for over 3,700 yards this season, and the Cyclones throw the ball a ton. Of course, Iowa State plays in the Big 12 Conference, and that is how all of its teams play.
The Cyclones gave up over 25 points per game this season, and their defense has struggled against elite offenses. The Cyclones might challenge for a Big 12 title next season, but they don’t have the talent to take on Notre Dame in this one.
2019 Camping World Bowl Betting Pick: Notre Dame will have something to prove in this game, and it has a better team. Bet the Fighting Irish -3.5 over the Iowa State Cyclones in the Camping World Bowl.
