But they just keep winning when it counts. Syracuse has lost two straight games, including a 65-55 loss at Pittsburgh on Saturday, getting 3.5. 

ODDS: Oddsmakers from online sports book have installed Syracuse as an 8-point favorite versus Notre Dame, while the over/under total is currently sitting at 131.5 points.

NCAA FREE PICK: Take Notre Dame. According to the latest college basketball trends, the Fighting Irish are 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Syracuse, 7-3 ATS in their last 10 road games. Syracuse is 6-13 ATS in their last 19 home games vs. a team with a winning road record, 1-5 ATS following an ATS loss, and 1-5 ATS last 6 vs. Big East. 

The ninth-ranked Orange look to avoid losing three straight for the first time in two years Monday night against No. 25 Notre Dame, which is trying for its fourth consecutive victory. With senior reserve forward James Southerland (13.6 points, 5.2 rebounds per game) sidelined with eligibility issues and 6-foot-9 freshman starter DaJuan Coleman out at least a month after undergoing knee surgery this week, Syracuse (18-3, 6-2 Big East) dressed seven scholarship players for Saturday's 65-55 loss at Pittsburgh. Minus the 6-8 Southerland (5.2 rpg) and now Coleman (4.4 rpg), Syracuse has been outrebounded in three straight games. The Orange are forced to rely inside on sophomore Rakeem Christmas and freshman Jerami Grant, who combined for five points -- all from Grant -- and eight boards against the Panthers. Notre Dame center Jack Cooley, averaging 15.0 points and 11.3 rebounds, had 17 and 10 in last season's victory over the Orange. He scored a season-high 26 and matched a season best with his second consecutive 16-rebound game in a 79-71 overtime victory at DePaul on Saturday. Notre Dame is 3-1 on the road this season -- all in Big East play. Expect the Irish to give Syracuse all they can handle at the Dome.
