2018 Notre Dame Fighting Irish Betting Odds

NCAA Football Betting: It was a nice bounce back season for Notre Dame in 2017, improving its win total by six games from the previous season and staying in the CFP discussion until the final weeks of the regular season. A one-point loss to Georgia early in the year was the only blemish on the Fighting Irish record until stumbling to a pair of losses in their final three games and settling for a Citrus Bowl invite. They got the W in that one to reach double-figures for the second time in three years under Brian Kelly, putting the memories of that painful 4-win season in 2016 to rest.

Kelly silenced his critics by putting together a 10-win season in 2017 and keeping the Irish in the CFP discussion until the final weeks. Notre Dame was 8-1 and ranked No. 3 in the AP poll heading into the final three regular season games. But the Irish were thrashed by Miami and Stanford and barely squeaked by Navy to end any talk of a playoff berth.

The Irish were strong running the football last season, ranking seventh in the FBS with nearly 270 yards per game. Their ability to chew up chunks on the ground overshadowed a shaky season from quarterback Brandon Wimbush and now the run game must be rebuilt. Dexter Williams and Tony Jones Jr. are in line to get most of the carries after Josh Adams, who ran for 1,430 yards, elected to forego his senior year. The offensive line also had two players – Quenton Nelson and Mike McGlinchey – taken in the first round of the NFL draft.

Wimbush needs to be better after struggling with his accuracy last year. He completed just 49.5 percent of his passes and was replaced by Ian Book in the bowl game. Book rallied the Irish to a win over LSU and created a controversy that includes highly touted freshman Phil Jurkovec. The defense figures to be less of an issue with nine starters back from a group that surrendered 21.5 points per game. New coordinator Clark Lea has a deep rotation on the line and at linebacker as Notre Dame looks for back-to-back 10-win seasons for the first time since the early 1990s.

Notre Dame is perhaps the most iconic and one of the most successful college football programs. The Fighting Irish have been recognized for 13 national championships by the NCAA and produced a record seven Heisman Trophy winners. NBC has televised Fighting Irish home games since 1991, the only school to have such a deal.

The game dates back to the late 1800s at Notre Dame, but the Irish didn’t enter the national consciousness until 1918 when Knute Rockne, at the age of 30, was named coach. During his 13 seasons the Irish went 105-12-5 with five undefeated seasons and three national championships. Notre Dame earned its first title in 1919 by going 9-0. Another national championship followed in 1924 when the Irish went 10-0 and won the Rose Bowl. Rockne’s coaching career ended with back-to-back unbeaten seasons and national championships in 1929 and 1930.

Success followed the program. The Irish claimed four national championships in the 1940s under Frank Leahy and returned to the pinnacle of college football in 1966 under Ara Parseghian. The Irish would produce their ninth unbeaten and untied season in 1973, claiming another national title. Another would follow under Dan Devine in 1977, but it would take Lou Holtz to revive the program after several forgettable seasons under Gerry Faust. Holtz would engineer Notre Dame’s last perfect season and national championship in 1988.
