Notre Dame vs. WVU Prediction

March Madness Predictions: Will West Virginia knock off Notre Dame? 3/18/17

Will West Virginia knock off Notre Dame today at 12:10PM ET and advance to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA tournament?

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Mountaineers are 2.5-point favorites versus the Fighting Irish while the over/under currently sits at 147.5 points, up from the opening number of 145.

Notre Dame advanced to the second round with a 60-58 win over Princeton, but the Fighting Irish failed to cover as a 5.5-point favorite. They have now failed to cover in back-to-back games after winning four consecutive times at the betting window before their loss to Duke in the ACC tournament championship game. They are now 8-2 straight up over their last 10 games and 6-4 against the spread.

West Virginia was comfortably in control of its opening-round game versus Bucknell but never really came close to covering the 13-point spread in its 86-80 victory. The Mountaineers have now failed to cover in four consecutive games, all of which came when they were favored. Over their last 10 contests, they are 7-3 straight up but a brutal 2-7-1 at the betting window.

Bet Tonight's College Hoops Action

OUR PREDICTION: Even though the Mountaineers have struggled to cover of late, they're still 6-2 against the number in their last eight NCAA tournament games as a favorite. They're also 4-1 at the betting window in their last five games versus ACC opponents and have covered in five of their last six NCAA tournament games when favored between 0.5 and 6.5 points. On the other side, the Fighting Irish are just 2-5 against the spread in their last seven neutral site games as an underdog, are 4-11 against the number in their last 15 NCAA tournament games, and are winless at 0-4 ATS in their last four non-conference matchups.
