Notre Dame Fighting Irish
Notre Dame has played decent this year, but they have not quite hit their stride yet. I do feel that as the year progresses, this team will get more consistent.
The Fighting Irish last played on December 22nd, where they beat Texas A&M- Corpus Christi by a score of 83-73. I am sure they would have liked to win by more than that, but they are not going to complain about a win.
Sure, this team has played their fair share of cupcake games, but they have also played some good programs. We will really know what this team is about when they start playing games within their conference on a more consistent basis.
In the win over the Islanders, the leading scorer was Dane Goodwin, who had 21 points and 6 boards. Also, both Paul Atkinson and Cormac Ryan had 14 points in the game.
Pitt has not started off the year in a fashion they would have wished for. Yes, there is still a long season ahead, but they need to start playing better now or their season will mean nothing.
The Panthers come into this contest with a record of 5-7. Simply put, that is not going to get it done, especially when you play in one of the more competitive conferences in college hoops.
The Panthers picked up a victory over the Jacksonville Dolphins last Tuesday by a score of 64-55. A strong second half is what propelled this team to victory.
In their last game, the defense played at a very high level, but the offense was frankly not that impressive. You do not typically see teams win ball games when they score under 70 points in modern-day college basketball.

4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Pitt ATS
When it comes to just winning ball games, Pitt has not been very good, but they have been effective when it comes to covering the spread and I look for that trend to continue in this one.
In this spot, I do not expect to see a blowout by either side. I do feel that the Irish are the better team, but I look for the Panthers to give them everything they have. Even though Pitt does not have a great record, I do not feel they will be overwhelmed when going against Notre Dame.
Notre Dame has not been great at covering this year and I do not see that changing in this ball game. For me, the 4 points are too much to lay, even though it is not the highest number in the world.
Give me the Panthers getting 4 points at home here.
