A Surge of Support for Notre Dame

BetMGM has reported a staggering 48.7% of all bets placed on the Irish to clinch the 2024-25 national championship. This is followed by Georgia with 15.6% and Alabama with 10.2% of the money. The question arises: Is this surge in bets a result of fan enthusiasm or does it indicate a savvy betting choice?

Notre Dame, finishing last season with a strong 10-3 record, including a dominant 40-8 victory over Oregon State in the Sun Bowl, has certainly made its case. The team’s prospects are further bolstered by the transfer of a former Duke standout quarterback to lead Notre Dame in the upcoming season.

Breaking Down The Schedule

However, the road to glory is not without its hurdles. Notre Dame’s season opener is a challenging away game against Texas A&M on August 31. Other significant challenges include games against Louisville on September 28, Florida State on November 9, and a season finale at USC on November 30.

Despite these tough matchups, Notre Dame is projected to be favored in their remaining seven games, hinting at a strong possibility for the Irish to make a significant impact in the season. With the other names on the aforementioned odds list dealing with increased competition due to conference realignment, the Irish have an easier than relative schedule to make a run.
