3* NCAABB Sure Fire on IUPU Ft Wayne +23.5 This is a lot of points for Notre Dame to be giving up tonight so I'll gladly take the big number. The Irish are coming off a big win against in-state rival Purdue on Saturday so you can imagine it might be tough for them to get up for this quick turnaround against a team they didn't exactly circle on the schedule in the preseason. The big number also puts into play a pretty solid system that says to FADE favorites of 20+ points off seven or more straight wins. These teams are just 33-65 ATS the past five seasons. Mike Brey hasn't exactly blown inferior opponents out either. Since becoming coach of the Irish Brey is just 26-41 ATS as a home favorite of 10+ points. You aren't going to see any threat of an upset tonight, but I can't see Notre Dame covering this large number on Monday.
