Notre Dame Fighting Irish
I would say that Notre Dame has been a solid team so far this season. They have not lit the world on fire, but they have been steady.
The Irish lost to the Virginia Tech Hokies on Saturday by a score of 79-73. They will look to get back on track when they face off with the Bison.
As you look at their schedule, they have a few nices wins, most notably over Kentucky and North Carolina. I do not feel many people had them winning either one of those contests.
They were up by 8 points over the Hokies on Saturday at halftime, but they got outscored by a margin of 47-33 in the second half. Those sorts of things just cannot happen if you are the Irish.
Howard has certainly not had all that strong of season. They could get better as the year goes on, but I do not view that as all that likely.
The Bison have a record of 6-7 at the moment. A lot of the games they have played have been winnable, but other teams have just seemed to play better than them this season.
This crew lost to the Norfolk State Spartans on Saturday by a score of 77-74. Even a strong second half by the bison was not enough to propel them to victory.
The offense was really not the issue for them in their last game, but the defense did not play at a high enough level. They will have to play much better on that side of the ball when they face off with Notre Dame on Monday.
CBB Betting Trends:
- Notre Dame is 3-1 SU in their last 4 games.
- Howard is 1-3 SU in their last 4 games.
Free Notre Dame Fighting Irish vs. Howard Bison NCAAB Summary:

4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Notre Dame ATS
Howard could definitely shock a lot of people if they picked up this win. They are going to have to play a complete game and execute precisely in order for that to happen.
Overall, the Irish have been playing some good basketball and I can see that keeping up in this game. The Bison are going to be in for a big challenge and I am not sure they are up for it.
As the game gets going, I just feel that Notre Dame will be too powerful on offense and the Howard defense will not have any answers for them. The Irish have quite a few playmakers and it is no easy task to keep them in check.
Give me Notre Dame at -10.5 here.
