College Basketball Betting Trends

Notre Dame 

The Fighting Irish are 6-13 ATS in their last 19 ACC games. Notre Dame is 1-11-1 ATS in the last 13 meetings.

Georgia Tech

The underdog is 10-2-1 ATS in the last 13 meetings. The Yellow Jackets are 5-2 ATS in their last seven neutral site games. 


The Fighting Irish have played dreadful basketball as of late, although their last win was a 69-59 trumph at home over Georgia Tech back on February 10. The Yellow Jackets had previously defeated Notre Dame 63-61 in the first meeting. The Yellow Jackets come in having won three of their last five straight up and have a legit good defense. As long as Georgia Tech can find cracks in the Notre Dame defense, it should be able to get the job done here. I'm taking the team that has played better basketball of late.
