Against The Spread Pick

The Virginia Cavaliers have won a season-high eight games in a row heading into their ACC Tournament opener against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish on Thursday. Virginia is not winning big by any means, but if there is one thing this team does it’s win. The defending National Champions recently scraped past Notre Dame in overtime, which is another reason why they are giving only three points in this quarterfinal contest. Jay Huff (8.5 ppg) has contributed double-figures in three straight games (15, 17, and 11 points). Notre Dame is 2-6-1 ATS in its last nine following a win by more than 20 points. The Cavaliers are 5-1-1 ATS in their last seven overall, 3-0-1 ATS in their last four against opponents with winning records, and 3-1-1 ATS in their last five as favorites. Lean toward VIRGINIA.

Over Under Pick

Only 99 points were scored in the previous meeting between the two teams–and that was despite five extra minutes for overtime! Also stingy on defense, Notre Dame has surrendered just 56 and 58 points in its past two outings. The under is 4-1 in the Fighting Irish’s last five overall, 7-3 in their last 10 against opponents with winning records, and 16-7 in their last 23 following a win. It is also 4-0 in the Cavaliers’ last four overall, 9-3 in their last 12 against opponents with winning percentages over .600, and 6-2 in their last eight at neutral sites. Take the UNDER.
