Notre Dame Fighting Irish Betting

A strong finish to the regular season lifted the Notre Dame Fighting Irish to 10 wins as they reached double figures for a third straight season. In the illustrious history of Irish football that feat has been accomplished just one other time. So while it’s not a return trip to the College Football Playoff, the Irish will head into their matchup with Iowa State in the Camping World Bowl riding a five-game winning streak with covers in the last four. There’s also been some question on the future of Ian Book so we’ll have to wait and see what he decides, and if that includes playing a lower-tier bowl game. Notre Dame surfaced as a 3.5-point favorite in the first meeting between the programs.

A lopsided 45-14 loss at Michigan on October 26 guaranteed the Irish wouldn’t be returning to the CFP. Notre Dame was abused in that game totaling just 180 yards of offense with Book having the worst game of his career with just 73 yards on 8 of 25 passing. The game wasn’t as close as the score indicates, and the score says it wasn’t close so that tells you how dominant the Wolverines were. Notre Dame regrouped, though, and finished the season with five straight wins to reach double figures. The Irish were convincing in their last four covering the spread each time while putting up at least 38 points.

Most of the talk surrounding the Irish has to do with Book and his accomplishments with the offense. He’s thrown 33 touchdown passes, the second-most in program history, and the team averages 37.1 points per game to rank 13th nationally. During the season-ending win streak, Book has 18 touchdown passes and hasn’t been intercepted in 90 attempts over the last three games. And the offense is balanced with Tony Jones Jr. leading the way out of the backfield with 722 yards. Notre Dame has the 46th-ranked run game, 48th-ranked pass game and is 45th in total offense.

Not to be outdone is Notre Dame’s defense, which also picked up its game during the winning streak. Facing two of the better running teams in college football in consecutive weeks, the Irish were up to the task. They held Navy to 281 yards in a 52-20 victory. That doesn’t sound great, but considering the Middies lead the FBS with over 361 yards per game on the ground, the effort was commendable. A.J. Dillon was limited to 56 yards and BC totaled only 128 on the ground the following week in a 40-7 Irish victory.

Iowa State is more of a passing team with Brock Purdy at the reins, but being able run the football makes them more of a threat. Notre Dame has a massive front line that brings the pressure and without the threat of a ground game they’ll tee off on Purdy. The Cyclones are a few plays away from being in a more prestigious bowl game. They lost five games by a total of 21 points with three of them by two points or less. They didn’t have much luck against the line down the stretch losing three in a row and four of their last five ATS.

The only thing that could possibly stop Purdy and the Cyclones’ attack was the weather, and it did in the regular season finale. In cold, blustery conditions in Manhattan, Purdy had a season-low 185 yards on 15 of 30 passing and ISU managed only 236 total yards in a 27-17 loss to K-State. In better conditions we can expect more production, but that goes for both sides.

Regular Season Recap

If only the Irish played all their games at home they’d be headed back to the CFP as the top ranked team. Well, maybe not, but they would have a better shot after completing a second straight undefeated home campaign. The two biggest games of the season came on the road and Notre Dame failed both times. The first was a hard-fought, 23-17, tilt between the hedges that the Irish covered as a 16-point dog. If there’s a good loss that was it, but it was the only one they could afford. Their CFP dreams were extinguished at the big house a few weeks later.

That didn’t prevent the Irish from finishing strong, though. A comeback 45-24 win on the soggy Stanford Stadium turf got the Irish their 10th win of the season, reaching double figures for the third straight season to match a program record set by the 1991-1993 Lou Holtz teams. It also ended a five-game slide to the Cardinal on The Farm. Notre Dame ended the regular season with five consecutive victories and four straight covers to finish 10-2 SU and 8-4 ATS.

Book was sharp down the stretch increasing his value as an NFL prospect. He tossed 33 TDs to help the Irish average over 37 points per game. Over the final three games Book tossed 12 scoring passes without an interception and he ranks second in program history to Brady Quinn’s 37 TD passes in 2006. Holding eight of their 12 opponents to 20 points or less, the Irish defense proved to be a stingy group. They finished with the third-best pass defense in the FBS allowing just 163.7 yards per game. They lead the nation with 17 fumble recoveries and rank fourth in takeaways with 26. Their plus-15 turnover differential is also third-best in the FBS.
