Betting on the Fighting Irish

While nobody is suggesting that it rivals the NFL for either fan or football betting interest, college football does still have a large and passionate fan base in America. Furthermore, many of these people visit the various online bookmakers to put down bets on the games, conferences and the BCS Championship, even as early in the new season as right now. Notre Dame Fighting Irish have made a fine start to their season, sitting on top of the BCS Independents Conference with seven wins from ten games – so are they a good gamble for the BCS Championship?

Well they are clearly in strong form just now, but a good start to the Conference season is no guarantee of going all the way to BCS glory. The Fighting Irish have odds of 47/18 with bookies for the title though, indicating they are not amongst the favorites – but are also not a rank outsider. Indeed, at these prices, and with the start they have made to the new season, the adventurous college football betting punter might well consider them worth a shot for the BCS, although it is clearly not a low-risk strategy. However if you feel they are too far outside the favorites, you can always bet on them to win single matches in their conference, or play an American football themed casino game instead.

These games – such as the five-reel slot machine $5 Million Touchdown – seem to be surging in popularity amongst American football fans all the time. Part of this is down to the fact that mobile casino options like iphone casino are enabling people to play them on phones – whether they use Apple or Android. Another reason is the quality of the games themselves, with $5 Million Touchdown offering top class football-themed images on the reels (players, cheerleaders, footballs etc) and impressive video graphics in the bonus game (where you become a player and have to score a winning touchdown). This game also has a $5 million maximum jackpot, which may also have something to do with its popularity.
