Notre Dame Fighting Irish

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish are coming off a successful season a year ago as they won 24 games and made it all the way to the Elite 8 in the NCAA Tournament. If the Irish are to be successful this season they will have to replace Demetrius Jackson and Zach Auguste.

The Fighting Irish are not likely to be as good on offense this season as they don’t have the players to replace Jackson or August. They will be hoping that freshman Temple Gibbs can play right way and they may need Matt Farrell to start this season. Notre Dame also has Rex Pflueger who was a top 100 recruit last year. Notre Dame does return Steve Vasturia who averaged 11.4 points per game last season and he will get one of the starting guard spots and V.J. Beachum could be the other starter.

Notre Dame does bring back Bonzi Colson upfront as he averaged 11.1 points per game last season. Matt Ryan could get another of the starting spots and the Fighting Irish may go with 6-9 redshirt freshman Elijah Burns as a third forward.

2016-2017 Notre Dame Fighting Irish Betting

The Fighting Irish were not that great against the spread last season as they went just 16-17-1 ATS. Notre Dame is a marquee team so they are oftentimes overvalued against the spread. That may not be as much the case this season as Notre Dame doesn’t have a lot of star power in their lineup so they may actually be a better bet against the spread.

Notre Dame Fighting Irish Picks

It is hard to see how Notre Dame can compete with the top teams in the ACC this season considering how much they lost in the off-season. Not only is the offense going to be down this season but the defense isn’t going to be any good either.

Mike Brey is an excellent coach so he will probably find a way for this team to challenge for a winning record in the ACC and get the team into consideration for an NCAA Tourney bid.
