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.

3:55 p.m. ET: While the spread has mostly remained the same over the last few hours, the Notre Dame moneyline at Pinnacle has dropped from around +330 to +312 with so much liability on the Irish. More than 70% of moneyline bets are on ND.

2:42 p.m. ET: Pinnacle has made the move down to -10.5, but its not a market-wide consensus yet. Many books are still at Clemson -11.

1:30 p.m. ET:  Notre Dame is down to +11 marketwide, and our Line Predictor tool estimates that the Irish will move to +10.5 next.

9:55 a.m. ET: Pinnacle has joined the party at -11.5, marking the first time in over two weeks it’s listed this spread under 12.5.

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 at Bookmaker and Bovada.

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

Notre Dame is receiving about 75% of bets as of Saturday morning, and sportsbooks will need Clemson to win outright and cover.
