Against The Spread Pick
The 16-10 Notre Dame Fighting Irish take on the 14-12 Miami Hurricanes in an ACC match. Notre Dame is 3-2 in their last five games, and over that period they have been pretty decent, beating the teams that they should, and only taking losses to the sixth ranked Duke as well as the defending champions Virginia. Meanwhile, the Hurricanes are also 3-2 in their last five, however, they are only two games above .500 and are at the bottom of the ACC. Notre Dame has a great 13-3 record at home, while the Hurricanes are 4-6 on the road. Notre Dame stands in the middle of the ACC, four spots above Miami. This combined with Notre Dame’s stellar home record gives them a supreme advantage in tonight’s game. Go with Notre Dame tonight.
Over Under Pick
Over the last five games, the Hurricanes have averaged 82 points per game, including a 102 point performance in a triple overtime win vs Virginia Tech, and Notre Dame has been averaging 65 points over their last five games. Both teams aren’t great offensively on the season, and the over tonight seems just a little high. The 102 points that Miami posted brings up that average for their last five games, and a performance like that most likely won’t happen again. I don’t think that both teams are good enough in the scoring department to reach tonights over. I would take the under tonight.
