“The Tigers are coming off a road loss and will be focused for this one. Even if fully healthy this would be a tough win for Notre Dame. I’ll take Clemson by 7-10. ”

“Clemson’s coming off a competitive showing on the road in Chapel Hill, and Notre Dame will not have DJ Harvey to help provide rebounding, shooting, etc. I don’t think Matt Farrell will come out shooting as well as he did in the first half against Louisville, and the Irish will get behind early and fail to overcome that deficit, despite their defense and rebounding keeping them within striking distance. Also, The M.F. Bird Whisperer will get another dunk in this one.”

“Notre Dames depth continues to be tested, now losing DJ Harvey for a few weeks. Martinas Geben has come along nicely with Colson out, but this is a tough road assignment that a short handed Irish team will play tough, but lose in a tight game.”

“Notre Dame’s luck has to change sooner or later, and I think it will on Saturday. The Irish have played in a number of close games lately, so don’t expect that to change. Only this time the Irish will squeak this one out.”

“This is not a great matchup, and I’m going against my gut with this pick, but Notre Dame has a solid chance in this one. If they can find a shooting rhythm and not completely exhaust their key players, I’ll take Brey’s squad 9 times out of 10. I’m picking the Irish to squeak this one out on the road, and get a much needed win in order to get some confidence back.”

“Road games are hard. Road games against ranked teams are even harder. I don’t think this one goes well for the Irish at all. Maybe it’s not a horrible blowout, but I wouldn’t be surprised at a +10 point loss.”
