College Basketball OddsWest Virginia -2.5Total: 146 points
Notre Dame survived a big scare in the opening round when they narrowly beat Princeton. The Tigers had a shot to win the game as time was running out, but weren’t able to connect on a triple try.
West Virginia got a strong outing from Bucknell in the opening round, but the Mountaineers were strong enough in the final and got the job done. They should expect another solid effort on the court from the Irish in this one, Notre Dame can spread teams out, shoot the three and play well enough defensively to keep themselves in games.
ND turned it over only six times in the opening round game. West Virginia loves turning people over and that will be a huge key to the game. Press Virginia does a great job of keeping people uncomfortable and although the Irish have a veteran club, playing 94 feet with the Mountaineers can be rough.
