Line: The line started out at Notre Dame by 8, moved to ND by 5.5, and is currently (Thursday afternoon) at ND by 6 or 6.5 (depending on the book). There has been quite a bit of movement “towards” Michigan. Also note that many bet-tracker sites show that most people betting on the game are taking Notre Dame. This means that the “average Joe” is putting a few bucks on Notre Dame, but the big-money “experts” are putting lots of money on Michigan, causing the line to shift towards Michigan. This was especially true on Wednesday, when the line went to ND by 5.5. Of course, this means absolutely nothing, but I found it interesting.
