Why Notre Dame Fighting Irish are a good pick +1 ½
The last game between these two was almost too close. Notre Dame had a chance for the upset win on the road. They failed by a point. The venue changes on Wednesday night with the Irish hosting the Seminoles. That could be the difference. Notre Dame has a great 14-3 record on their homecourt. Unless Florida State changes something from the first game to the rematch, Notre Dame should have a big advantage playing in front of their fans.

Florida State vs Notre Dame Final NCAAB Betting Analysis
In recent play, neither team has inspired confidence. The Notre Dame Fighting Irish are 1-4 ATS in their last 5. On Feb. 26, they beat Boston College 62-61 as a -5 favorite. They followed that up with a stunning 73-84 loss to Wake Forest as a -1 fave.
Duke beat Notre Dame by 34, 94-60, on Feb. 15. The Irish are playing their worst basketball of the season. But so is Florida State. The Seminoles faced 15-13 Clemson on Feb. 29. How did FSU fair? The Tigers beat Florida State 70-69.
But although FSU lost to Clemson, they could bounce back with a huge win on Wednesday. Yes, Notre Dame almost upset the Seminoles. Florida State knows what’s at stake, though. They could either allow the loss to Clemson to carry over into this. Or, they could step it up and beat an overmatched squad on the road.
The guess here is that the Seminoles step it up. This season, every time Florida State got knocked down, they picked themselves up for the next round. Back FSU to get the huge win and cover.
