Notre Dame Fighting Irish Football
Notre Dame certainly made its mark in its first season in the ACC, going a perfect 10-0 during the regular season before losing to fellow playoff qualifier Clemson in the ACC title game.
Oddsmakers expect another big year from head coach Brian Kelly’s squad: The Fighting Irish have a high win total of nine games, they have the second-best odds to win the ACC, and junior running back Kyren Williams has top-15 odds to win the Heisman Trophy.

Notre Dame Fighting Irish Point Spreads
Despite their dominant record, sportsbooks expected better of the Fighting Irish in 2020. The Irish were a mediocre 6-6 against the spread (ATS).
This might be confusing for new bettors, but it’s actually pretty simple. Books set a line based on how much they expect the favored team (indicated with a minus sign) to beat the underdog (indicated by a plus sign) by, and teams have to win by more or lose by less than that total to cover.
Here’s an example from Notre Dame’s game against Alabama:
- Notre Dame +18.5 (-110)
- Alabama -18.5 (-110)
With Notre Dame losing by only 17, it covered the spread this time. Unfortunately for Fighting Irish bettors, they failed to cover in five of their 10 wins last season, as their margin of victory was less than the spread.
Notre Dame Fighting Irish Over/Unders
A different way to bet on the Fighting Irish are over/unders, also known as totals. With this popular bet, it’s all about the points. Who scores those points doesn’t matter, just how many.
In that big game against Bama, sportsbooks set the total at 65.5. The Irish lost, 31-14, which meant that under bettors won since the combined scoring output (45) was lower than the line set by the books. If the teams had combined for 66 or more, overs bettors would have gotten paid instead.
Notre Dame Fighting Irish Moneylines
While betting on Notre Dame against the spread was a losing proposition, moneylines were profitable. Moneylines are another popular and simple bet you can make on Notre Dame games.
With a moneyline bet, all that matters is your team winning. Instead of adjusting the final scores, sportsbooks adjust the payouts to reflect the relative likelihood of either side winning.
The easiest way to think about these odds are in units of $100 (or $10). Betting $100 on Notre Dame as an underdog at +165 against Clemson would’ve earned you $165 in profit when the Fighting Irish scored their regular season upset. On the other hand, if they were favored at -165, you would have needed to risk $165 for only $100 in profit.
Notre Dame Fighting Irish Props
If all of this seems like a lot to take in, why not just bet on your favorite player? Proposition, or prop, bets let you do just that. Prop bets are wagers on a specific stat line of one player, including yards or touchdowns from passing, rushing or receiving.
Kyren Williams props could be popular this year, as the junior is expected to be a major contributor. You could bet on him to go over or under on rushing yards or score a touchdown (or not), for example. There will be a plethora of bets on other Fighting Irish players as well.
Notre Dame Fighting Irish Futures
Think the Fighting Irish can end Clemson’s six-year reign at the top of the ACC? You can bet on it to happen with a futures bet.
Futures bets are bets on end-of-season results for a team or player. Some examples include over/under number of wins on a season, odds on conference or national championships, and Heisman odds.
