2024 Notre Dame Fighting Irish College Football Betting

Notre Dame Fighting Irish College Football Betting

Notre Dame football coaches are ultimately revealed as successes or failures in their third season. Ara Parseghian, Dan Devine, Lou Holtz, and Brian Kelly made it. Charlie Weis, Tyronne Willingham, Gerry Faust, and Bob Davie did not. In 2024, Marcus Freeman enters his third season and a fork in the road. One of the first things you learn when studying the rich history of Notre Dame football is that the third year is the most important in judging if a coach will succeed or fail. After records of 9-4 and 10-3, Marcus Freeman begins his third season at Notre Dame with his third different starting QB, two of which were transfers. Duke senior transfer Riley Leonard is number one on the depth chart entering spring camp.

2024 Notre Dame Fighting Irish Betting Preview

After leading Duke to a 9-4 season capped off with a Military Bowl win in 2022, Leonard was injured most of 2023, playing in only seven games. But he will always be remembered at Duke for engineering its epic 33-17 national TV win over Clemson in Week 1. He threw for 175 yards and ran for 98 more, including a TD.

Last year, Sam Hartman was the Notre Dame starter after a stellar career at Wake Forest. In 2022, Drew Pyne started after two years on the Notre Dame bench. Subsequently, after his only season as the number-one quarterback, Pyne transferred to Arizona State.

This one-and-done pattern started in Kelly’s final season, in which Freeman was the defensive coordinator. In that 2021 campaign, Jack Coan transferred in from Wisconsin to nearly lead the Fighting Irish to the College Football Playoff.

Ian Book may go down in history as Notre Dame’s last three-year starter at QB. He won more games than any other Notre Dame QB in history (30). And he was the last man to provide stability at the position.

Freeman has shown steady progress in his two seasons as head coach, but it is his ability to acquire talent that has raised expectations in South Bend. Now, Freeman must show that he can consistently lead the Irish to wins on the biggest stage and get his program to the College Football Playoff. A rebuilt offensive line is a concern, but the Fighting Irish landed one of the top quarterback transfers in Duke's Riley Leonard and upgraded at coordinator with the arrival of Mike Denbrock from LSU. Also, the defense should be one of the best in the nation.

Notre Dame went through an offensive overhaul this offseason. Despite the turnover, the Irish will field a deeper and more talented unit in 2024, and new offensive coordinator Mike Denbrock has raised expectations. Quarterback Riley Leonard gives Notre Dame a dynamic run-throw option, assuming his ankle can get healthy and stay healthy. The best-supporting cast of his career will surround Leonard.

Notre Dame’s proud history is what makes them such a powerful brand. As conference realignment heats up, Notre Dame can maintain its independence.

Notre Dame has a total of 11 claimed and 11 unclaimed national championships. The Fighting Irish have a litany of iconic coaches in their history. Namely, Knute Rockne, Frank Leahy, Ara Parseghian, Dan Devine, and Brian Kelly have led the Fighting Irish to success and glory.

And with great coaches have been great players. Heisman trophy winners Angelo Bertelli, Johnny Lujack, Leon Hart, Johnny Lattner, Paul Hornung, John Huarte, and Tim Brown are among them.

And then there was “The Gipper,” George Gipp, who was portrayed in a motion picture. An actor named Ronald Reagan played the role of Gipp and went on to be President of the United States. On campaign stops, Reagan often asked voters to “win one for the Gipper.”

Despite their success, Notre Dame has not won a national championship since 1988. The landscape of college football has changed, and Notre Dame refuses to make enough academic concessions to compete with powers such as the Alabama Crimson Tide. But they remain strong enough to retain an iconic program's brand power and popularity.

Marcus Freeman has impressed gamblers and fans with his ability to attract top players. Now, Freeman must translate that talent into wins.
