Notre Dame Fighting Irish Football Odds, Schedule, Bet Types, & Team Stats

Notre Dame returned to the College Football Playoff in 2020, making their second CFP appearance after winning 10 games and earning an at-large berth as a member of the ACC. The Fighting Irish have since reclaimed their Independent status in football, but their +700 odds to reach the Playoff indicate that they may not need the ACC to get back into the top four.

Notre Dame lost a veteran starter in Ian Book, though it gained another in Wisconsin’s Jack Coan . The former Rose Bowl-winning QB will finish his career in South Bend after missing all of 2020. Coan threw for 2,727 yards and 18 touchdowns in 2019. He’ll also benefit from sharing a backfield that was among the nation’s best last year. Kyren Williams led the way with 1,125 rushing yards and 13 touchdowns while Chris Tyree had 496 yards and four scores as the backup.

The Irish are a bit thin at wide receiver, which likely makes tight end Michael Mayer the best pass-catching option. Mayer caught 42 passes for 450 yards and a pair of touchdowns in 2020. Look for wide receiver Avery Davis to possibly take a step forward after having 322 yards and two scores last year.

Defensive coordinator Clark Lea left to become the head coach at Vanderbilt, but new coordinator Marcus Freeman has plenty of returners to work with in his first year. Most notably, safety Kyle Hamilton , who had a team-high 63 tackles in addition to six pass breakups and 4.5 tackles for loss. Defensive end Myron Tagovailoa-Amosa also figures to be a big part of this unit again after making 2.5 sacks, 5.5 tackles for loss and recovering a pair of fumbles. Notre Dame begins its season on September 5 with a road game against Florida State.

Betting on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish

Notre Dame Fighting Irish Point Spreads

Betting point spreads are wagers based on the expectation that a team will win or lose by a certain number of points. The Fighting Irish went 10-1 overall in the regular season, but were worse against the spread at 5-6. Notre Dame’s 10 wins came by an average of 20.6 points. Here’s an example:

  • Notre Dame -2.5 (-110)
  • Liberty +2.5 ( -110)

In this situation, Notre Dame is favored by 2.5 points against Liberty. If the Fighting Irish win the game by three or more points, a $100 wager on ND would come with a payout of $90.91. If the Flames won the game outright or lost by two points or less, the same $100 wager would net $110 plus the original $100 for a total of $210.

FAQ: Everything you need to know about point spreads

Notre Dame Fighting Irish Over/Unders

Over/under, also called point total, is a wager placed on the combined scoring of a single game. Bookmakers come up with a number and you can either bet the over or — you guessed it — the under. Here’s how it works:

Let's say Notre Dame plays BYU an d the over/under is set at 70 points. A wager on the over would require the Fighting Irish and Cougars to score 71 total points or more to win. Betting the under is an expectation that the two teams would score 69 or fewer points. It's also possible for the bet to push, which would happen if the game finished with exactly 70 points scored.

In 2020, Notre Dame averaged 33.4 points and allowed just 19.7 points. The Fighting Irish hit the over in 55.4% of their games last season.

Notre Dame Fighting Irish Moneylines

Notre Dame went 10-2 last year, making it one of the better picks in college football on the moneyline, which is as straightforward as it gets when it comes to betting. The only thing to do here is pick the winner. Check out this example:

  • Notre Dame -160
  • Army +18 0

The minus (-) and plus (+) signs distinguish the favorite from the underdog, making Notre Dame the favorite in this scenario. Odds can be understood more clearly if you think in terms of $10 or $100 increments. A wager on the Fighting Irish odds would mean every $160 bet nets $100. And it's the opposite for underdogs: Here the Army moneyline was set at +180, meaning a $100 wager would profit $180.

Moneylines are also commonly used when making parlays, which are multiple bets tied into one. Let’s say you bet on Notre Dame’s moneyline and a -2.5 point spread, ND would need to win by three points for that bet to be successful. The risk may be greater, but so is the reward with increased odds. Use our Odds Calculator to calculate any bet amount or conversion.

Notre Dame Fighting Irish Props

Player props are wagers on a single player, and they're tied to a single stat found in the box score for a game or even the whole season. These are among the most fun to bet on, especially if you're already playing fantasy football and like the player-specific focus it offers. Check out an example below:

  • Jack Coan 2021 passing yards: 2,950.5

Fighting Irish Futures

Futures are somewhat similar to prop bets in the way that both are monitored over the course of a season. Except most future bets are focused on end of season success. Examples of futures are:

  • Notre Dame Fighting Irish odds to reach the College Football Playoff
  • Notre Dame Fighting Irish odds to win the College Football Playoff
  • Jack Coan’s odds to win the Heisman Trophy

If you think the Fighting Irish can return to the Playoff or even win the CFP championship, this is the place to bet. These types of bets are called futures, and they're just wagers on things that settle at the end of the year. For a full list of college football futures, click or tap here.
