Notre Dame at Miami Fan Duel Odds:

Spread: Miami minus 14.5 Total 146.5 Moneyline: Miami minus 1450 Notre Dame plus 810 Total 164.5 Over -115 Under -105

Notre Dame is 2-4 versus the point spread this season and Miami is 4-2. The Fighting Irish are 1-2 versus the spread as an underdog. That includes an outright win versus Oklahoma State. The only game Miami did not cover as a favorite this season was minus 23 in the win over FIU.


The 14.5 points is a lot to ask Miami to cover. A 10-14 point win for Miami would still be an excellent start in the ACC. Notre Dame is going to try and slow the tempo. In its three games versus power conference opponents this season, Miami has only scored over 80 points once. Take the under with caution.

Next. Miami has rebounded from blowout losses in last 2 seasons. dark

The Miami basketball team will play its second straight home game on Wednesday night versus LIU. Miami has its final big non-conference game this season when they play Colorado in Brooklyn on December 10. Miami will resume ACC play on January 3 when the Hurricanes host Clemson on January 3.
