Boston University Terriers vs. Notre Dame Fighting Irish Betting Picks and Prediction

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish take on the Boston University Terriers for what could be one of the best NCAA basketball games today.

Although both NCAAB teams are coming into this one struggling a bit throughout the season, it’s expected that Notre Dame would come away with the win in this game. 

Boston University is going to be coming in at 5-4 on the season, while Notre Dame is currently sitting with two losses already.

Although Notre Dame has impressed for certain parts throughout the year, losing two of their first eight games is never considered a success for a program like the Fighting Irish.

Let’s break it down with our Boston University vs Notre Dame betting and find the best bet for this game.

Boston University Terriers vs. Notre Dame Fighting Irish

Matchup Info

  • Date and Time: Saturday, Dec 3, 4:00 PM
  • How to Watch: ESPN

Notre Dame Performance Recap and Analysis 

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish men’s basketball team has played some impressive basketball to start the season, and although they do have two losses, we have to realize what they’ve been able to do. 

They’re going to be coming into this one after just beating Michigan State a week ago but then falling to Syracuse in their last game.

Losing to Syracuse isn’t necessarily one of the worst things in the world, as they’re one of the better NCAA basketball teams in the country.

A Tough Loss

However, Notre Dame had a prime opportunity to become 7-1, and it was a tough loss. Dane Goodwin is the guy I’m going to be looking for in this game.

He’s coming off a 16-point and nine-rebound performance against Syracuse, and if he can replicate that, we might see him score 20 points in this game on Wednesday night.

Key Injuries

At the moment, the college basketball injury report is clean for both of these teams, and that’s something that we have to keep in the back of my mind with our Boston University vs Notre Dame betting.

Betting Trends to Know

Notre Dame is currently 2-6 against the spread and hasn’t been a profitable team in college basketball.

However, their college basketball standings are still impressive despite not covering many games this year.

Boston University Performance Recap and Analysis

The Boston University Terriers come into this one playing some interesting basketball on the season, and the Boston University Terriers stats reflect that.

They have some impressive wins throughout the young season but have also lost a team that they should have beaten. 

They have a win over Northeastern, Hartford, and some other impressive mid-major programs. However, they’ve lost to teams like UC Davis and Milwaukee, two teams that Boston University certainly had a chance of beating.

Boston University’s Top NCAAB Players

The one thing to think about here with Boston University is some of their top college basketball players.

If they’re going to win this game, it’s going to start with some of those guys. The top guys at Boston University have to get going for them to do their thing.

Jonas Harper is somebody to look out for in this game, as we could see elite guard play. He finished with 15 points in his most recent game against Merrimack.

Key Injuries

Boston University also isn’t dealing with any major college basketball injuries, and that’s important for the NCAAB odds that we will be breaking down soon.

Betting Trends to Know

Boston University hasn’t been too profitable against the spread this season either, currently sitting at 4-4.

Boston University Terriers vs. Notre Dame Fighting Irish Odds

Our Boston University vs Notre Dame betting has to know what the odds are for this game, and at the moment, Notre Dame comes in at -14. 

Although this might be a few too many points, it makes sense, considering how much better they’ve played this season than Boston University.

Boston University has shown the ability to compete in certain games, but Notre Dame is easily the better team here.

Boston University vs. Notre Dame Betting Picks

  • Moneyline

Our best money-line bet here would likely be taking Boston University at +800 because Notre Dame’s money line is way too high.

  • Over/Under

The best over/under bet that we’re going to be looking for in this game is going to be taking over 133. Although I don’t expect too many points to be scored in this game, 133 seems a little too low.

  • Spread

Our favorite spread bed in this game is going to be taking Notre Dame – 14 for -110 odds. I’ve been impressed with some of their wins in their NCAAB schedule and expect them to continue that on Wednesday.

Boston University Terriers vs. Notre Dame Fighting Irish Prediction
