Tuesday night freebie comes in college hoops.
Go with Notre Dame as the home favorite over St. John's.
You have to wonder why the Irish are favored by nearly double-digits against a team that has beaten them in each of the last three meetings, including a 67-63 outright win on January 15th in New York?
My theory is, "there has got to be a reason", and that having been said, I will ride Notre Dame in triple-revenge against the Johnnies. St. John's comes to South Bend with losses in five of their last seven games, and the Redstorm have lost their last four on the conference road, going 2-2 against the spread in those four setbacks.
Notre Dame is off a loss at Marquette, and they have played three of their last four on the road. The lone home game in that span was a double-digit romp over Cincinnati, as the Irish improved to 16-3 straight up at home for the season.
With three straight series losses to St. John's, look for the Irish to show no mercy tonight as they run up the final margin.
Back Notre Dame.
