Win Total Odds for Notre Dame Football

Wagering on college football win totals have become quite the popular betting market in legal sports betting states, and you can bet on Notre Dame’s win total for this season as well at DraftKings Sportsbook.

Opening Win Total

School Opening DraftKings Win Total
Notre Dame 9 (O +100 / U -125)

Current Win Total

School Current DraftKings Win Total
Notre Dame 8.5 (O -115 / U -105)

Since being released, the Notre Dame win total has fallen from 9 to 9.5, and there is slight juice on the over at DraftKings. This indicates that some money came in on under 9 wins, which makes sense given Notre Dame’s youth and relatively rough schedule compared to other schools in the 9-win range.
