The Irish have a love/hate relationship as they either love Notre Dame or hate them. You can be in action all season if you want to wager on Notre Dame’s college football betting win total.
Bet on college football numbers list the win total on Notre Dame at 8. The Sbg global sportsbook has the under at -130 so gamblers have to risk a little bit more to take Notre Dame under the total. Is that bet a good one or will the Irish win 9 games or more in 2010?
New Coach: The Fighting Irish have Brian Kelly as their new head coach and he should not be taken lightly. He took over at Cincinnati and made them into a national power. He could do the same thing with Notre Dame. He knows how to win games, period. This won’t be a Charlie Weis disaster at Notre Dame.
New Quarterback: No more Jimmy Clausen at Notre Dame. That is not all bad though as Dayne Crist is a very talented quarterback who should do just fine. He should get a lot of help on offense from talented players like Theo Riddick, Michael Floyd and Armando Allen.
Defense: The Irish should be better on defense with Bob Diaco running the show. Kelly brought him from Cincinnati and he will have Notre Dame much better on defense.
Over or Under 8 Wins: Which way do you go with Notre Dame in 2010? Let’s look at the schedule and see. They should beat Purdue in their opener and then they host Michigan. Kelly shouldn’t lose to a Rich Rodriguez coached team. That gets them off to a 2-0 start. They have a tough game at Michigan State but it is winnable. Then they host Stanford before going to Boston College. They will probably lose one of those three games which means they are 4-1. They host Pittsburgh next and it won’t be easy but they can beat a Wannstedt’s team. They then have winnable games against Western Michigan, Navy and Tulsa. That should get them to eight wins. They finish with Utah Army and USC and the Irish are capable of winning each of those games. Notre Dame’s total of 8 looks very enticing to take over as the Irish have winnable games throughout their schedule.
