Notre Dame Fighting Irish 

Notre Dame opened up the year on a .500 run, going 8-8 over their first 16 games. Since then the Irish are 2-5 with losses to Syracuse, Florida State, Boston College, NC State and Wake Forest alongside wins over Georgia Tech and Louisville. 

In the Wake Forest matchup back on Saturday, the Irish took a one-point deficit into the second half. Notre Dame was outscored 54-38 from there and lost 81-64. Nate Laszewski put up 18 points with seven rebounds in the defeat. 

Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets

On the Georgia Tech side, they went a similar 8-8 over their first 16 games of the year for a .500 start as well. The Yellow Jackets have since fallen to Pittsburgh, NC State, Syracuse, Clemson, Duke, Louisville and NC State in succession. 

In the NC State game, the Yellow Jackets took a 41-35 deficit into the locker room. Georgia Tech posted a 31-29 second-half deficit and lost 72-64. Miles Kelly led the way on 17 points with nine rebounds, and Javon Franklin added 16 points. 


I’m going to take a stab on Notre Dame. I was going to lean Georgia Tech here, but they’ve had a rough run lately. The Yellow Jackets haven’t been able to score more than 66 points in any of their last seven games, and they’ve lost nine in a row in total. Notre Dame hasn’t exactly been tearing it up in the win column themselves, but they’ve been able to score 71 or more points in six of the last seven. We should have a pretty good matchup here, and I think the Irish can power out a cover/win if they play well. Notre Dame took a 73-72 win at home the last time these teams met up so this one should also be close.
