The Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Clemson Tigers meet in college basketball action from the Littlejohn Coliseum on Saturday. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
Clemson is listed as an 8.5-point home favorite with the total for this game set at 143.5 points.
For Notre Dame, JJ Starling is questionable for this game with a knee injury while Dom Campbell is out with an achilles injury. Clemson comes into this game with a clean injury report.
Notre Dame’s 76-61 win over Clemson back on February 12th, 2022, made it three straight wins for the Irish in this head-to-head matchup.
Notre Dame is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games following a win and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record while the under is 3-0-1 in their last 4 road games. Clemson is 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games while the over is 5-0 in their last 5 Saturday games.
I’m backing the under here. Notre Dame is coming off of their best win of the year at home against Pitt on senior night, but going on the road is going to be tough considering that the Irish have really seen their form drop off on the road. On the other side, Clemson’s been scoring pretty well, but the Irish have a tendency to bring teams down to their level with their defense and I think this ends up being a lower-scoring battle. Give me the under here.
