How is the betting public viewing Brian Kelly's third season at Notre Dame? If early wagering on win totals is a judge, bettors think Kelly and his Fighting Irish will be in for a long 2012.
The offshore sportsbook 5Dimes has put an over/under win total of 8.5 on Notre Dame, with heavy juice (minus-210) applied to the under. Each of Kelly's first two teams finished 8-5.
The excellent site Beyond The Bets notes that 5Dimes' policy is to adjust the juice instead of win totals as bets are made.
