Cincinnati vs. Notre Dame

notre dameIn the marquee matchup of the night, the Notre Dame Irish face off against rival Cincinnati tonight at 6:30 ET at the Fifth Third Arena.  Notre Dame comes in with a stellar 13-1 record overall and 7-4 against the point spread.  Cincy is 13-2 with a 6-5 mark ATS (Against the Spread).

The Irish are coming off an impressive beatdown of Seton Hall in which they racked up 93 points to Seton Halls 74, covering the 10.5 point spread.  Cincy is coming off a 54-53 loss to St. Johns, a game in which the Bearcats were favored by 13.5.  On New Years eve they beat Pittsburgh which is major rival and a barometer for where they are talent wise.

Offensively Notre Dame scored about two more points per game (77) than does Cincy (75) but the Bearcats make up for that with better defense allowing three points fewer per contest. The difference maker tonight will be home court advantage.

The spread currently has Cincy favored by 4.5 points. It’s tempting to take the hotter hand but we think Cincy’s losing days are over. This is a very talented team. They should come out and beat the Irish tonight and at the same time cover the 4 and a half points.
