Notre Dame Season Odds

Following yet another disappointing season, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish hope that their offense will be a strength this year and get them back into national title contention in 2009.

Bet 2010 BCS National Championship Odds

Charlie Weis led the Irish to a lackluster 7-6 overall record in 2008, but he did inspire a convincing 49-21 victory over Hawaii in the 2009 Hawaii Bowl. Weis will once again call the plays on offense for a team will get back a ton of talent on that side of the ball.

Back are quarterback Jimmy Clausen, receiver Golden Tate and running back Armando Allen. Clausen, once viewed as the top high school prospect in the nation, passed for 3,172 yards, while Tate racked up 1,080 receiving yards and Allen 585 on the ground.

Defensively, the Irish will welcome back safety Kyle McCarthy, who amassed an impressive 110 tackles and two interceptions last season. Also returning are defensive end Ethan Johnson (3.5 sacks), safety Harrison Smith (3.5 sacks), and cornerbacks Robert Blanton and Raeshon McNeil, who each picked off two passes last season.

Oddsmakers from online sports book Sportsbook.com have established Notre Dame as a 25/1 long shot to win the 2010 BCS National Championship. But given their weak schedule, the Irish have at least a decent shot at competing for a national title if the offense could ever find a rhythm on the ground and open up passing lanes for Clausen. The defense isn’t as bad as it looked last year, although if the unit is on the field as much as it was last season, then Notre Dame doesn’t have a shot.

If you feel as though Weis and Clausen can get the offense going, then it’s hard to pass on 25/1 odds with USC being the only true competition on Notre Dame’s ’09 schedule.
