Notre Dame Struggling Against The Best

Notre Dame will need to start performing better against top flight opponents if they expect to last long in the NCAA Tournament, as the Fighting Irish are just 1-4 SU and ATS in their past five against teams with a winning record. Notre Dame will start their March Madness when they face the 23-12 Michigan Wolverines Friday.

Shark Bites
  • Michigan is 3-0 SU in their past three games against Notre Dame.
  • The UNDER is 6-2 in Notre Dames past eight games.
  • Michigan is 2-6 ATS in their past eight following an ATS win.

The Irish ended their season going just 3-4 SU in their final seven games as their offense scored less than 65 points on five occasions. You can’t point any fingers at Zach Auguste with the senior notching five double-doubles in Notre Dame’s past seven, including a ridiculous 19 points and 22 rebounds in an overtime win over Duke.

Michigan limped through the difficult Big Ten this year with a mediocre 10-8 conference within the conference despite their defense holding opponents to just 67.5 points per game. The Wolverines starting lineup stepped up in a big way in their play-in game against Tulsa, as four of their five starters scored 12-plus points.
