4* Big East SMASH (ESPN) on Notre Dame +9
The Irish have one of the best home courts in the country. They have won 29 of their last 30 at home with that loss coming last Saturday to UConn. You can bet the Irish will be jacked up to face the No. 1 team in the land, and to do so at home, where they haven’t dropped back-to-back home games since Jan. 2009.
Home court has been important in this series as the home team is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings. Also, the Fighting Irish are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 home games vs. a team with a winning road record and 23-11 ATS in their last 34 vs. the Big East. We'll take the points.
