Prediction

After a rough start to conference play, Notre Dame has won there last 2 games. They come into this game as the 46th ranked team in my computer power rankings, while Pittsburgh comes into this game as the 107th ranked team. One of the strongest parts of Notre Dame’s game has been there ability to shoot the ball from three. Currently, they are shooting at 35.0% from beyond the arch, while Pittsburgh is only shooting at 29.7%. Notre Dame has covered in 5 of there last 6 games, while Pittsburgh has only covered in 1 of there last 4. I am taking Notre Dame -5.5 in this game.

Best Bet: Notre Dame -5.5
