NCAA FREE PICK: Take Notre Dame. According to the latest college basketball trends, Notre Dame is 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings, Dog is 4-0 ATS last 4 in series and 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Pittsburgh. 

Notre Dame has won and covered four straight in this series. Both teams should be in the NCAA Tournament, but they want to position themselves for a high seed in the Big East Tournament and NCAA's. They are tied for fifth at 8-5 in the congested and competitive Big East, where a top-10 finish earns a first-round conference tournament bye and winding up in the top four comes with a double bye. Jack Cooley, a 6-9 burly senior forward, leads the team in scoring (14.6) and rebounding (11.2), and has recorded six consecutive double-doubles. Notre Dame, which has won four straight over Pittsburgh, has also received strong guard play from Jerian Grant (13 points, 5.8 assists) and Eric Atkins (11.7, 5.9). Pitt wins with strong defense as they allow just 55.5 points per game, but Notre Dame can play the slow tempo. Notre Dame loves to share the ball as they are second in the country in assists with 17.9 per game. They don't need a dominant scorer and in this game, where they are a double digit dog, expect them to play better after a terrible performance against Providence.
