Notre Dame vs Wake Forest Betting Prediction

Notre Dame is coming off of a very entertaining win against Georgia Tech in their first game of the tournament on Tuesday and they have played pretty well recently. The Fighting Irish have won six of their last nine games and their offense has been improving. Wake Forest had a pretty poor finish to the regular season, which is why they are right on the bubble for the NCAA Tournament. Notre Dame won the only regular season meeting between these teams by a score of 70-65, but I like Wake to get revenge here. Wake Forest knows this is a must win game and their offense is far superior to Notre Dame’s. Take Wake Forest by double digits here.
