Here we see Notre Dame as a slight favorite in their matchup against Rutgers. Blake Wesley has been one of the best true freshmen in the country as he leads them in scoring with 14.6 points per game. The Irish are one of the best three-point shooting teams in the country as they hit from 38 percent from deep which is second in the ACC.

Rutgers gets by on their defense. They allow only 65.8 points per game which is second in the Big Ten. The Scarlet Knights should be able to take advantage of Notre Dame's poor rebounding in order to mitigate some of the issues they may face with their strong three-point shooting.

When looking at the spread, there is some significant coin on Rutgers at +1. The irony here is that Rutgers is 14-16-1 against the spread, covering just 46.7 percent of the time, compared to Notre Dame who is in the black. The Irish are 17-15 on the season at 53.1 percent. When looking deeper though, as a dog, Rutgers s 11-5.

On the point total, as an underdog Rutgers is 8-8 to the over and in 30 regular season games they are 15-15. Notre Dame was 17-14 to the over during the regular season and as a favorite were 11-8 on overs. The lean towards the over here makes sense from the betting public.

The moneyline data is interesting. More of the bets are on Rutgers but more money is on Notre Dame. This game genuinely feels like a toss up game, as the one point spread indicates. Personally, I find myself leaning towards the defensive-minded Rutgers Scarlet Knights tonight.
