Irish looking for upset of Hurricanes
Notre Dame returns home from a three-game road trip looking to pull off another home upset when it faces No. 7 Miami tonight at 7PM ET on ESPN2.
According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Notre Dame is a slim favorite at home tonight, as the Irish are getting odds of -2 points against the Hurricanes. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 143.5 points.
Notre Dame is 19-9 on the season, 10-6 in the ACC, 13-1 at home and 12-13-1 against the spread. Miami is 23-5 overall, 12-4 in the ACC, 5-4 on the road and 17-9-1 against the spread. The home team has won five straight in this series, but Miami has covered the spread in three of the last four meetings.
Miami has been one of the top teams at the betting window this season, but the Hurricanes have actually struggled to cover on the road, going just 3-6 against the spread this season. Miami is also 1-2 ATS as a road underdog. Notre Dame is coming off a surprising 77-56 loss at Florida State, but the Irish have been strong after a loss this season, going 6-1-1 against the spread, which is one of the best records in the country. Following a three-game road trip, the Irish should be ready to go at home, a place where it has beaten the likes of North Carolina and Louisville.
