A clear difference is shown by Virginia with public betting NCAA basketball value compared to most teams. Specifically, few teams are as good at getting the money than the Cavaliers. It is true that their suffocating defense is a big advantage with the odds. In like manner the UVA offense is much improved over last year. In contrast Notre Dame must rate as a disappointment thus far. The Irish are a slightly above average team with no real strengths. Most important of all they are not making money for gamblers. Few teams have offered less value on the CBB board.

Notre Dame Fighting Irish
Notre Dame has a public betting NCAA basketball record of 11-7 straight up, 7-11 against the spread, and 8-10 under the total. Late on the Fighting Irish are flooding bettors with red ink. Dame has covered just one of their last six games with four of their last six going under the number. Head coach Mike Bray’s team has not impressed on national metrics. As an example, the Irish rank 153rd for scoring offense and 117th for points allowed. TJ Gibbs and John Mooney lead Notre Dame with 14 points per game each. Mooney also adds 10.7 rebounds per tilt.
A trio of Cavaliers have proven to be online offshore bookmaker assets. To show Kyle Guy has a per game average of 15.2 points. De’Andre Hunter (14.6) and Ty Jerome (13.2) offer strong support. Head coach Tony Bennett has built the nation’s top ranked defense. In this situation Virginia is one of the hottest teams on the board. UVA has paid in nine of their last 10 games. Overall Virginia is 16-1 straight up, 14-3 vs. the board, and 8-9 under the total. The Cavs are in a six-way tie for the lead of the Atlantic Coast Conference.
Stats to Consider
Although the Irish are the home team home court has not provided them much in the way of betting value. Notre Dame has covered just five of their last 17 home games. Four of their last six at home have gone under the total. Counter to that is Virginia’s superior road value. The Cavaliers have lost just two of their last 18 on the board in away action! And 13 of their last 18 road tilts went under the total.
Team vs. Team
Commencing with their last two meetings against the Cavaliers has Notre Dame gotten the money. Five of the last seven between these teams have gone under the total. But at Purcell Pavilion the Irish have failed to get the money in their last three games hosting Virginia. All three of those games went under the total.
Matchup to Watch
Not withstanding their recent setback Virginia brings a much more compete game in this matchup. As mentioned earlier Notre Dame at home brings little in public betting NCAA basketball value.
