Faves Dominating Between Irish, ‘Canes

Miami will attempt to thrust themselves atop the ACC standings when they travel to South Bend to take on Notre Dame on Wednesday. The Hurricanes, who opened as underdogs, will need to reverse some history as the favorite is 5-0 SU and 4-1 ATS in the past five between themselves and the Fighting Irish.

  • Miami is 4-1 ATS in their past five games against teams with winning records.
  • The UNDER is 5-0 on Notre Dame’s past five games coming off of a loss..

Zach Auguste has been a monster for Notre Dame as the senior has averaged 15.1 points and 11.2 rebounds over the past eight games.

Miami will be without sixth man Ja’Quan Newton as the sophomore is serving a three-game suspension for violation of team rules. Angel Rodriguez is pegged to pick up the minutes as the senior has averaged 36 minutes per game with Newton out of the lineup compared to just under 30 minutes with Newton active.
