Notre Dame shot 51.9% from the field and was +9 in rebounding margin in the loss.

Louisville is 5-11-2 ATS in their last 18 road games and 6-21-1 ATS in their last 28 games following an ATS loss. The over is 5-2 in Louisville’s last 7 games. Notre Dame is 10-3 ATS in their last 13 Saturday games and 3-13 ATS in their last 16 home games. The over is 7-0 in Notre Dame’s last 7 games.


Both of these teams have struggled this season, but Louisville has only won two games this year. The Cardinals come into this game looking for their first ACC win, but they have lost their last four games by at least 10 points. Notre Dame has struggled defensively in recent games, allowing 85, 84, 84, and 78 points in their last four games. I like the over here.
