NOTRE DAME -2 over Illinois
9:00 p.m. (Daily free selection)
We are off to another good start to the week in basketball going 3-1. For the 1st time this year we are offering a 9 week trial of our best in the nation basketball service for only $900. Call 1-877-332-0077 to join now. You know you are going good when you are calling the end of undefeated seasons and win less streaks. Sunday we called the end of New England’s undefeated season, Monday we had the Utah Jazz (+8) who missed a shot at the buzzer that would have ended Golden State’s undefeated season and last night we called for the end of Philadelphia’s 25 game losing streak dating back to last year and the 76ers got there first win in 8 months! Tonight we are not calling for the end of streaks but we will back Notre Dame over a Illinois squad that is riddled with injuries. In their 84-73 loss to Iowa St. on Saturday, starting center Mike Thorne suffered a season ending torn meniscus. He is the team’s leading rebounder and averages 13 points a game. His presence will be sorely missed on the boards, as the Illini got smoked on defensive rebounds in the second half against Iowa St. without him. Notre Dame lost to an inspired Alabama squad last time out 74-73 but the Irish bounce back big after losses going 21-10 ATS following a loss since 2012. Take ND over the fighting Illini.
