2015 Notre Dame Fighting Irish Season Win Total Picks and NCAA Football Predictions
by Robert Ferringo - 7/16/2015
2014 Record: 8-5
2015 Las Vegas Season Win Total: 9.0
2015 Season Win Total Prediction: 'Push'
A 7-1 start to the 2014 season meant the Irish had gone 28-6 under Brian Kelly since the start of the 2012 season. But then the train came off the tracks with the Irish losing four straight games to close the regular season. The Irish salvaged some pride with a bowl win over LSU. But the season evoked a lot of mixed emotions for Irish backers, with them falling short of their 7.5 season win total mark.

But coach Brian Kelly welcomes back 17 starters from last year's squad, and the Irish will be a Top 10 team at the start of the 2015 season. If the defense improves from last year's mid-70s rankings then the Irish have a chance at making the college playoff.
Notre Dame starts the season with three of four games in South Bend, and five of their first seven games are on their home turf. However, that means a back-loaded road slate, with four of their final five games away from home. That includes tricky, physical games in unforgiving places like Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Boston and Palo Alto.
I think this is one of Brian Kelly's best teams to date. However, it takes a lot of luck to navigate a schedule as fierce as the Irish's. There simply aren't enough gimme games here, and I think a rugged final five weeks will wear them down. I think the Irish will lose to USC on Oct. 17. I also think they'll get tripped up in two other games this season. I don't think there is any value on betting 'under' because I don't see four losses. So gun-to-my-head I would play them 'over'. But, frankly, my analysis has nine wins and a 'push'.
