TOM STRYKER’S FREE BASKETBALL SELECTION SATURDAY, JANUARY 2ND
#793 NOTRE DAME (+10′) over North Carolina at 4 PM EST
Off a nine-point home loss to Virginia on December 30th, Notre Dame will travel to Chapel Hill and give North Carolina fits on Saturday afternoon. The Tar Heels enter this contest in a tailspin of their own off a pair of SU and ATS losses to NC State and Georgia Tech and they shouldn’t be laying double digits to anyone right now.
Technically speaking, this is an elite spot for the Golden Domers. As an underdog checking in off the comforts of a home game, head coach Mike Brey’s kids own a respectable 118-84-4 ATS record. In this spot hitting the court without confidence off a straight up loss, UND improves to a rewarding 32-12 ATS including a sweet 27-6 ATS provided its opponent does not arrive off a blemish of seven points or more. With those three parameters live and the Golden Domers priced as a pup of +14.5 or less, this situation tightens up to a spectacular 24-3 ATS.
In case you haven’t been paying attention to college basketball, North Carolina has been having its own problems lately. According to the Team Stryker College Basketball Database, the Tar Heels are on a feeble 19-23 SU and 17-23-1 ATS run since the start of the 2019-20 season including a stiff 7-13-1 ATS if they are priced as a favorite of -3 or more. In addition, in the comforts of home, UNC is on a pitiful 5-10 ATS run in its last 15 lined games including just 3-8 ATS if they are laying -3 or more.
The Irish are connecting on 39.3 percent from behind the arc (ranked 25th in the country) and they’ll find a way to sneak in the backdoor in this ACC battle. Take Notre Dame. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
