The Syracuse Orange and Notre Dame Fighting Irish face off on Wednesday in a college basketball showdown at the Joyce Center. When these two teams faced off in February of 2021 it was Syracuse that won 75-67.
Syracuse comes into this game with a 15-12 and they have gone 14-13 against the spread but it took overtime in the last game to beat Georgia Tech. Syracuse has won six of their last seven games. Syracuse is averaging 77.3 points while their defense is giving up 73.8 points per game. Buddy Boeheim has been the top player for Syracuse averaging 19 points while shooting 40 percent from the field and 33.8 percent from behind the three point line. In this game if Syracuse wants a chance to get the job done, they are going to need the offense to be strong.
On the other side of this matchup is the Notre Dame Fighting Irish who sit with a 19-8 record and they have gone 14-13 against the spread. Even though Notre Dame has found success this season, they are coming off a loss in their last game. Notre Dame is averaging 71.2 points while their defense is giving up 66.6 points per game. Blake Wesley has been the top player for Notre Dame averaging 14.7 points while shooting 75 percent from the field. There are three different players that are averaging at least 10 points per game.
Notre Dame is 7-1 against the spread in their last eight games against a team with a winning straight up record. The under is 4-0-1 in Notre Dame’s last five games following a straight up loss. The under is 5-1 in Syracuse’s last six road games. The under is 4-1-1 in Notre Dame’s last six home games against a team with a road winning percentage of less than .400.
I expect Syracuse’s offense to struggle a bit against Notre Dame’s defense and that is going to lead to this game being lower scoring. Look for Notre Dame to finish right around 70 points and this game is going to stay well under the total.
