Betting Odds: Notre Dame -1.5 (-105) - Over/Under (130.5)

Pick: Notre Dame -1.5 (-105)

The Atlantic Coast Conference tournament will kick off here on Tuesday afternoon in the nation’s capital. As the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets will face off with the Notre Dame Fighting Irish in an opening round matchup. It has been a rough season for both of these programs, as both of them are in the middle of rebuilds, and they need to go on an incredible tournament run if they want to be involved in the NCAA tournament. As both of these teams would have to win the conference tournament to earn a bid after less than impressive regular seasons,  where they both finished with losing records. Only one of them can keep their tournament hopes alive in this game on Tuesday afternoon and it should be a solid one to kick off the ACC conference tournament. 

Georgia Tech got off to a fast start in ACC conference play but they were unable to maintain that momentum and now they find themselves opening up the tournament against Notre Dame here on Tuesday. They will need to pick up the victory in this game if they want to advance and keep their NCAA tournament hopes after they registered a lackluster run throughout conference play, and put themselves in an awful position. Georgia Tech comes into this game three games below .500, and as losers of 17 out of 31 on the season and they are now in a situation where they have to win out if they want to be successful to close out the year. 

The Yellow Jackets certainly have a bright future ahead of them but they will still need a couple more years of building up the program before they can get back to being consistently successful in one of the toughest conferences in college basketball. It was their defense that let them down this season as they gave up around 74 points per game while only managing to put up around 70 points per game and that is not a recipe for success throughout the ACC. Although they were able to put together a decent run and the regular season, winning three out of their last four, they will need to bounce back from their blowout loss to Virginia in their season finale.

It was a total rebuilding year for Notre Dame under first year head coach Micah Shrewsberry. They looked absolutely lost at times, and other times they showed great flashes of potential. However, at the end of the day, it was a total roster overhaul for Notre Dame and a group of young freshmen that were leading the way for the majority of the season. At times that was great for the Irish and other times it was their downfall as a group of experienced players led to several mistakes late in the game. It would end up costing them plenty of games this season that they were more than capable of picking up a victory, and they have to win out if they want to make the NCAA tournament. 

Notre Dame certainly has the potential to be a dangerous team within the next few seasons but at the moment they have a long way to go before this is a competitive basketball program once again. Despite plenty of hurdles to overcome, Notre Dame finished the season with 12 victories in 31 games and they will look to get on a run heading into the conference tournament. Freshman Marcus Burton will be the key in this game if Notre Dame wants to keep their tournament journey alive as he will need to lead them to victory over Georgia Tech here on Tuesday afternoon in Washington DC. This is a Notre Dame team that certainly has the talent to pull off some upsets and get the job done but they will have to persevere and overcome winning five games in five days if they want to make the NCAA tournament this season.

Betting trends to consider in this matchup:

- Notre Dame is 5-3 as a favorite 

- Georgia Tech is 6-10 after a loss 

- Georgia Tech is 11-14 as an underdog 

I looked for this to be a close and competitive game throughout the entirety of the contest here on Tuesday afternoon. As I look for Notre Dame and Georgia Tech to go back-and-forth throughout the game here in this one as they both look to open up the ACC tournament with a win and keep their tournament hopes alive in the process. However, in the end, I look for Notre Dame to pick up the victory and I also look for Notre Dame to cover the spread here in this game against Georgia Tech on Tuesday afternoon as well.
