Virginia Has Dominated Notre Dame Since Joining ACC

Notre Dame has been good but not great since joining the ACC in 2013. If the Fighting Irish want to prove they belong among the conference's elite, they need to beat (or even be competitive against) the Virginia Cavaliers. Notre Dame has gone 0-4 SU and ATS against Virginia since joining the ACC while being outscored by an average of 13.2 ppg.

Shark Bites
  • Notre Dame is 8-1-1 ATS in its last 10 games as favorite.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 3 of Virginia's last 4 games against Notre Dame.
  • Virginia is 6-1 SU and ATS in its last 7 games on the road.

Notre Dame has been a tough out on the road, as the squad has gone 3-1 SU and 3-0-1 ATS on the road since the beginning of its conference schedule. If the Irish are to climb the ACC rankings, some more consistency from VJ Beachem is imperative, as the senior has averaged 13 points in the past seven but has failed to hit double digits in three of those outings.

After opening the conference schedule 1-2 SU, Virginia has won four straight while holding opponents to 59.5 ppg. The Cavaliers offense has gotten a boost since Marial Shayok has seen increased floor time, as the Ottawa, Ontario, native has averaged 14.6 ppg in the past five outings.
