The College Football betting season is about to get underway for the first time since the launch of the PA online sports betting market. Pennsylvania sports bettors have strong ties to Penn State and Pitt, but a love for Notre Dame Football is still high in the Keystone state.

|Make CFB Playoffs||1100||850|
|Miss CFB Playoffs||-2500||-1600|
|Over-Under Wins||Over 9.5 (+135) Under 9.5 (-177)||Over 8.5 (-180) Under 8.5 (+150)|
The 2019 Notre Dame football season truly intrigues me. With 13 returning starters and a solid QB in Ian Book, Brian Kelly’s team is set up for success, but the schedule is not easy. Road trips to Georgia, Michigan and Stanford would require a worst case scenario result of 2-1 for the Irish. Difficult games against VaTech, an upstart Virginia program and a USC team ready for revenge, are potential upset spots as well. You can see why sportsbooks are favoring the UNDER action for the upcoming season win total for Notre Dame football.
Looking at the Notre Dame over-under win total above from DraftKings Sportsbook and FanDuel Sportbook in PA, the numbers feed my theory. DraftKings has the Irish listed with an over-under of 9.5 wins. Some serious juice of -177 resides on all under bets, while you are rewarded with +135 for an over bet on 9.5 wins.
FanDuel Sportsbook on the other hand lists Notre Dame with an over-under of 8.5 where we see a -180 moneyline on the over and +150 on under 8.5 wins.
