Notre Dame Basketball vs. Georgia Tech: Staff Picks

The OFD staff dives into picking Notre Dame’s ACC games, starting with Georgia Tech today at Purcell

NCAA Basketball: Georgia Tech at Notre Dame Matt Cashore-USA TODAY Sports

Jeff Czerniakowski, Staff Writer (7-2 ND Games) (33-11 Bonus Picks)

Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets vs. Notre Dame Fighting Irish - Notre Dame

“I’m not very confident in this one but my guess is that the Irish take care of an average ACC team at home to start conference play. Georgia Tech has problems of their own so I expect Mike Brey to exploit them for a close win.”

Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets vs. Notre Dame Fighting Irish - Notre Dame

“Even with Tadric Jackson and Josh Okogie back from suspension, the Yellow Jackets struggled closing out the non-conference slate. With a week off to recharge, I'll go with the Irish...and they'll actually look good doing it.”

Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets vs. Notre Dame Fighting Irish - Notre Dame

“The Irish had as bad of a December as you could ask for, and after the past few years’ early ACC success, they seem due to begin the ACC slate on a more negative note. But I can’t shake the feeling that the time on break and the time Mike Brey had to think will pay off, and ND will come out fresh and firing on all most cylinders at home. Irish by 5 or 6.”

Ryan Kelley, Staff Writer (7-2 ND Games) (26-18 Bonus Picks)

Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets vs. Notre Dame Fighting Irish - Notre Dame

“I think the Irish are fortunate to be playing one of the worst teams in the ACC to open conference play. It should allow them to get a third straight win, and things will only get tougher from there on out.”

Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets vs. Notre Dame Fighting Irish - Notre Dame

“Picking the Irish to start ACC play off on the right foot at home. A Georgia Tech team with losses to Grambling State and Wofford should not be a threat a to Notre Dame coming out of the break.”

Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets vs. Notre Dame Fighting Irish - Notre Dame

“The Irish are slowly trending back to where they need to be, and the start of conference play should provide a further boost as the Bonzie show continues, and the Irish begin their ACC slate with a win”

Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets vs. Notre Dame Fighting Irish - Notre Dame

“Notre Dame will start off ACC play right against Georgia Tech. It won't be a "gimme" by any means, but the Irish are simply the better team and should come out on top once all is said and done.”
