Sportsbooks will be in an unusual spot for the first College Football Playoff semifinal on Saturday afternoon as Notre Dame has attracted most of the money as a 10.5-point underdog against Clemson.

This line has bounced around after opening at Clemson -10.5 at Pinnacle shortly after the playoff announcement. It reached -13.5 the week of Dec. 14, but has since been bet down back to the opener.

Using our betting data at Sports Insights, we’ll be tracking the line moves all day and relying on Pinnacle as our main source.

We can also use our Line Prediction tool to see where this point spread is heading. It’s been trending down all day.

9:15 a.m. ET: Several books have started to move this line down to Clemson -11.5 as Notre Dame money continues to flow in. The total continues to rise, reaching 58.

We’ll track odds all day and begin updating this section around 8 a.m. ET.
