Fighting Irish starting QB and offensive catalyst Ian Book has been ruled out of the Fighting Irish's Week 11 game against Florida State due to multiple midsection injuries and sore ribs, and the bookmakers are making the gravity of his absence very clear.
Especially if you were thinking about touching either side of the game's total over/under or Notre Dame's total points.

Wimbush has really been poor over the last year or so.... I am wondered but more so if it continues into Syracuse— NYMets945 (@nymets945) November 8, 2018
