NCAA Cash-In: Notre Dame vs. Pittsburgh

Wild on Sports
NCAA Cash-In
Notre Dame Fighting Irish VS. Pittsburgh Panthers
Line: Notre Dame -4, O/U: 50.5

The Match-Up:

Notre Dame enters the game with a 7-2 SU record. They are just 3-5-1 ATS but have covered three of their last four. They will hit the road this week to play a Pittsburgh team that has traditionally played the Irish pretty tough. Notre Dame is 3-1 on the road this year with their lone loss coming at the hands of rival Michigan. The Notre Dame offense seems to have hit its stride in recent weeks scoring 37+ in three of their last four.

Pittsburgh comes into this one 4-4 SU and also just 3-5 ATS this season. The Panthers are 3-1 at home with their lone home defeat coming at the hands of #2 ranked Florida State. Pitt enters the game off of back-to-back losses, but both of those games were on the road and both were relatively close games. 

Their lone common opponent at this point is Navy, a team Notre Dame beat my four last week and a team Pittsburgh lost to by three the week before.

The Trends:

The past five meetings have been decided by 6 points or less.
Underdog is 7-0-1 ATS in the last 8 meetings.

The Verdict:

All trends point to a nail bitter but I just don't see that being the case. Pittsburgh's lone notable win can against a New Mexico team that few are taking seriously. Notre Dame just has too much talent and too much on the line not to come out firing in this one. I expect this game to be double digits. Play the Irish with confidence.
