The ACC steps into the midweek spotlight with an intriguing matchup in South Bend. The Notre Dame Fighting Irish host the No. 7 Miami Hurricanes at the Joyce Center on Wednesday.
The Hurricanes (23-5 SU, 17-9-1 ATS) beat Louisville 73-65 at home on Saturday to end a tough stretch in their schedule that began with a 25-point loss at North Carolina, and then a 3-point win over Virginia. Davon Reed and Angel Rodriguez both scored 17 for the Hurricanes, who outscored Louisville by 10 after halftime.
The Fighting Irish (19-9 SU, 12-13-1 ATS) were routed 56-77 at Florida State for their second loss in a three-game road stretch, which included a loss at Georgia Tech and a win at Wake Forest. They started the season 14-5, but are just 5-4 in their last nine contests.
Note Dame has won three of their last five meetings with Miami, but the most recent matchup resulted in Miami winning 79-70 at home as 5.5-point favorites on February 3. The Hurricanes perform better at home as they’ve lost their last three trips to South Bend; their last win there came back in January 2000. Wednesday’s game starts at 7 PM ET with coverage on ESPN.
