Prediction: St. Johns
Grade: Winner (100)
Reason: Scott "The Bulldog" Rickenbach NCAAB Saturday 8* (Regular Play) on St. Johnís vs. Notre Dame @ 12 p.m. ET
Notre Dame is taking the Big East by storm, winning nine straight games and going a bountiful 8-1 ATS in that span, most recent dismantling the West Virginia Mountaineers in a 71-44 victory as a 2.5-point home favorite. While itís a good time to be a fan of the Fighting Irish, Saturdayís date with the St. Johnís Red Storm is the best time to sell Notre Dame while its spreads are inflated. The Johnnies, the youngest program in the Big East, are starting to figure things out after a long and trying season. Unlike many programs, the Red Storm have not given up on a lost year, with back-to-back SU and ATS wins heading into the weekend. St. Johnís toppled the UCLA Bruins in a non-conference showdown last weekend and followed that with a 79-72 win over the DePaul Blue Demons as 5-point favorites Monday. The Irishís methodical tempo plays into the Johnnies strengths. The Red Storm play a passive style due to their short bench and limited scoring options. And, St. Johnís has been a thorn in the side of Notre Dame, especially when the Fighting Irish are ranked. The last three times the Irish visited Madison Square Garden to play the Johnnies as a ranked program, they lost. In fact, St. Johnís is 6-2 ATS in its past eight meetings with Notre Dame, holding a 4-1 ATS advantage over the Irish in New York City. The cavernous confines of MSG will wreak havoc on Notre Dameís perimeter attack, which shot just under 57 percent from beyond the arc versus WVU. The Irish are a long way from South Bend Saturday.
Play on St. Johnís as an 8* Regular Selection Saturday.
Good luck, Scott
