3* NCAAB Big East SMASH (ESPN2) on Pitt -1.5
I know Notre Dame's home court has provided one of the best advantages in the country, but with Tim Abromaitis out for season, Pitt is definitely the better team. Motivated by a bad loss to Wagner last game, expect the Panthers to prove it tonight.
Notre Dame has been overvalued all season and is 0-6-1 ATS in lined games as a result. In 3 contests against ranked foes (Mizzou, Gonzaga, Indiana), the Irish have been outscored by average of 20.0 points.
The Panthers are 13-4-1 ATS in their last 18 games following a loss and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games as a road favorite.
The Fighting Irish are 0-5-1 ATS in their last 6 Tuesday games, 0-4-2 ATS in their last 6 home games, 0-5-2 ATS in their last 7 games following a win and 0-7-1 ATS in their last 8 games vs. a team with a winning percentage above .600. Pound Pitt.
