The Notre Dame Fighting Irish continue to slump as they are losers of seven of their last ten games. A huge reason for this is their offense, which was only able to put up just 54 points in their last defeat at the hands of the Virginia Cavaliers.
The Wake Forest Demon Deacons have also had their fair share of issues on the offensive end throughout the year. In fact, the Demon Deacons are posting just 68 points on a nightly basis on only 39% shooting as a team.
Wake Forest Demon Deacons
The North Carolina Tar Heels allowed just 21 points to Wake Forest in their last outing as they were able to pick up the 38-point blowout win. And while the Tar Heels were able to shoot an outstanding 64% both from the field as well as from three-point range, the Demon Deacons were relegated to 32% from the floor along with 17% from long range.
Jalen Hoard (14 ppg, 8 rebs) led the team with 17 points along with six rebounds off the bench in defeat. On the other hand, leading scorer in Brandon Childress (15 ppg, 4 rebs, 4 ass) had a disastrous outing in going 0-12 (0-8 3 FG) in addition to having six turnovers.
Chaundee Brown (11 ppg) has stepped up the recent four games for Wake Forest, however, struggled versus North Carolina in going just 3-5 from the floor with 9 points. The Demon Deacons have lost three of their last four home games, overall.
Notre Dame Fighting Irish
The Fighting Irish have also came out on the losing end in three of their last four road outings as well. However, their last defeat occurred on the road versus the second seeded team in the ACC in the 4th ranked Virginia Cavaliers.
Both teams were horrible from the field in shooting under 40% on the night; However, connecting on 14 of 17 attempts from the free throw line ultimately was the catalyst for the victory for the Cavaliers. Kyle Guy and D’Andre Hunter had 22 and 21 points, respectively, for Virginia in the win.
Leading scorer John Mooney (14 ppg, 11 rebs) suffered from the field in going 4-13 on the night. Yet, the forward picked up his second straight double-double in scoring 11 points while grabbing 15 boards.
Temple Gibbs (14 ppg) has increased his scoring average to 18 points in the last two outings for the Fighting Irish. Unfortunately, Gibbs is only shooting 35% on the season.

Free Wake Forest Demon Deacons vs. Notre Dame Fighting Irish NCAAB Prediction:
While both offenses have really struggled throughout the season, I will give the edge in this matchup to the home Fighting Irish. On one hand, the defense for Notre Dame has been much better than that of the Demon Deacons. Also, one should look for the home team to have a bit better offensive showing versus a Wake Forest squad that has allowed an average of 88 points in their last five games. Look for Notre Dame to pull out an all-important 75-65 win in this contest over a struggled Demon Deacons squad on Tuesday.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Under
Notre Dame continues to shoot just 40% from the floor per game. With that being said, while they will certainly be more efficient on the offensive end versus Wake Forest in this contest, look for the under to be the strong play in the end. As stated, the Fighting Irish possesses a defense that is barely allowing teams to post 60 points in their last three outings. Look for the visitors to struggle in this contest as the Fighting Irish will prevail.
