Free Notre Dame Fighting Irish vs. Colorado Buffaloes NCAAB Prediction:
Both of these teams have yet to play any serious competition this season, making it difficult to come up with a comparison.
Watching the Buffaloes allow UL Monroe to make a run in the second half scares me a little when it comes to whether or not they can run the floor with the Irish for a full 40 minutes.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Notre Dame -1.5
I think Notre Dame’s brings a stronger defense on the floor and they have also been shooting a higher percentage from the field. They are averaging double digits in steals per game and I think turnovers will be a factor for Colorado.
