Notre Dame Fighting Irish

The showcase game of the college basketball weekend comes on Saturday night when Notre Dame hosts Connecticut.  Notre Dame vs. Connecticut college basketball betting odds at the Fighting Irish as +2 home underdogs at has noted that the away team is in fact 8-0 in this series over the last 8 games. 

One week after beating Georgetown and Seton Hall, the Fighting Irish believed they were right back in the fight for title contention in the very tough Big East.

Two road losses later, Notre Dame (12-5, 5-7 ATS) has to regroup in a hurry facing a very good Connecticut club. What has undermined the Irish is a faulty road defense, allowing 77.4 points a game.

Though the competition has been weaker, they have given up just 63.4 PPG on the home hardwood and are 20-11 ATS after a game where they failed to cover the spread. They will look to extend the nation's best home winning streak to 47 on Saturday night.

Connecticut (17-1, 7-7 ATS) is one of the most experienced teams in a veteran league. All five starters are juniors or seniors, as is the top reserve in both the backcourt and the frontcourt.

Of the eight-man rotation, freshman guard Kemba Walker is the only player seeing any significant minutes. That's not to say the Huskies are bullet-proof, they have made plenty of miscues in different contests, be it guards A.J. Price, Jerome Dyson or center Hasheem Thabeet.

The difference this year is they've made the plays late which have led to victories. With Notre Dame's defense a question, UConn could succeed having an 80-45 ATS mark when they make 47-53% of their shots in a game.

White Sox and the Rays vs. Red Sox Under Come Through Nicely Sunday

The Rays are suddenly looking human again and playing .500 baseball over their last ten games.  They will be offering up Taj Bradley (3-2, 3.60 ERA), a desperate Taj Bradely we should say.  He was charged with one run (zero earned) over 5 2/3 innings on Monday but it was still a loss to the Cubs.
