Vegas Odds & ATS NCAA Basketball Expert Picks on Notre Dame Fighting Irish vs Michigan State Spartans

#5 Notre Dame Fighting Irish (6-0) vs
#3 Michigan State Spartans (5-1)

Time: 7:00 PM ET
Date: Thursday, November 30, 2017
Where: Breslin Center, East Lansing, Michigan
Watch on: ESPN
Odds: Michigan State -6
Total O/U: 136½

The third-ranked Michigan State Spartans will look to maintain their winning form and notch their fifth straight win as they get ready to lock horns with the fifth-ranked Notre Dame Fighting Irish in a non-conference showdown set to be broadcasted Thursday night on ESPN at 7:00 p.m. and live from Breslin Center in East Lansing, MI.

The two schools met only once which was back in 2014 when the Fighting Irish took the game 79-78 in overtime but failed to cover the three-point line. The Fighting Irish enter this huge showdown as a 6-point underdog, according to BetOnline Sportsbook, with the total sitting at 136½ points.

Unlike the Spartans, who already suffered a defeat, the Fighting Irish come into this caper having won all their six contests including a 67-66 nail biter against then No. 6 Wichita State over a week ago. The Fighting Irish rallied from a 14-point halftime deficit to capture the Maui Invitational.

The Spartans will play a ranked team for the third time this season after losing to top-ranked Duke in their second game of the season. But their statement victory came in their last contest this Sunday when they thumped the reigning National Champion Tar Heels 63-45 as a 2-point favorite. .
