College Basketball Odds
Notre Dame -1.5
Total: 147.5 points

One of two games inside the Barclays Center tonight, Notre Dame and Colorado open up this mini tournament before Northwestern and Texas play the nightcap. Both teams come into tonight’s game with 3-0 records on the season, Notre Dame has really relied on its defense to date, albeit against far inferior opponents, allowing just 53.7 points per game, which ranks tied for seventh-best in the country.

V.J. Beachem and Bonzie Colson have been the stars offensively, each averaging better than 19 points per game. ND as a team is shooting 49 percent from the floor and has been a solid team on the glass. Colorado has some balanced scoring as well, they have five guys averaging at least nine points per game.

Josh Fortune and Derrick White are both averaging a dozen per contest and Wesley Gordon has been a monster on the glass for a Buffs team, hauling in almost 12 per game for a Colorado team that is very strong in the rebounding department at 50 per game.

Neither team has beaten anybody exceptional this season and both defense have been solid against those weaker teams. This one will be won on the glass and Colorado looks like the better rebounding team so far this season.

Free Pick: Colorado
