Notre Dame Fighting Irish vs Texas Tech Red Raiders 3/20/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The #11 Notre Dame Fighting Irish will meet with the #3 Texas Tech Red Raiders in a Men’s Basketball Championship – West Region – 2nd Round clash in Viejas Arena at Aztec Bowl, CA, on Sunday, March 20, 2022, at 7:10 PM ET.

 

Notre Dame’s profile would normally guarantee a berth to the NCAA Tournament since the Fighting Irish finished the regular season with a record of 22-9 (15-5 ACC). However, they had to work hard on Selection Sunday since the ACC had a bad year.

 

Notre Dame’s ACC Tournament run came to an end in the first round, when the Irish lost to Virginia Tech in an 87-80 shootout.

 

In the First Four on Wednesday, the Fighting Irish defeated No. 11 Rutgers 89-87, but it took double OT to get the task done. They showed no signs of exhaustion, defeating Alabama in a 78-64 final to advance to the 2nd round.

 

The Fighting Irish are a powerful offensive squad, with KenPom’s adjusted offensive efficiency ratings ranking them No. 28. They are outstanding from beyond the arc, ranking eighth in the US in the 3-point percentage (38.1).

 

Notre Dame is also one of the best teams in the country at limiting turnovers, ranking No. 29 in turnover rate. On Sunday night, the Fighting Irish will face the best defense in college basketball.

 

  • The University of Notre Dame Fighting Irish is 6-2 ATS in their last 8 matches.
  • Notre Dame is 14-4 SU in their last 18 matches.
  • The total went OVER in 4 of Notre Dame’s last 5 matches in the Big 12 Conference.

Notre Dame Fighting Irish vs Texas Tech Red Raiders Predictions 3/20/2022

 

Texas Tech had another successful regular season, finishing with a 12-6 Big 12 record. In the conference tournament, the Red Raiders won two games against Iowa State and Oklahoma before falling to then-No.

 

Last Saturday, Kansas defeated Kansas in the Big 12 championship match. They put on one of the most dominant performances of any team in the NCAA Tournament’s first round, defeating Montana State 97-62 on Friday.

 

Texas Tech shot 66.7 percent from the field, just edging out Syracuse’s 67.9 percent from the floor in the first round of the 1995 NCAA Tournament. The Red Raiders had 23 assists.

 

They are ranked No. 43 in KenPom’s modified offensive efficiency ratings heading. Texas Tech is very good from behind the arc, making 55.5% of their attempts.

 

The Red Raiders are collecting a lot of offensive rebounds, but they’re also having trouble with turnovers. They’ll be up against a Notre Dame defense ranked 78th in adjusted efficiency. Texas Tech is led by F Bryson Williams with 13.9 points and 4.2 rpg.

 

  • The University of Texas Tech Red Raiders is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 matches.
  • Texas Tech is 11-4 SU in their last 15 matches.
  • The Red Raiders are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 matches in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

#11 Notre Dame Fighting Irish vs #3 Texas Tech Red Raiders. The NCAAB pick for this game is the #11 Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

 

After the performance on Friday, I don’t want Notre Dame to fade away. Despite coming off a two-day double-overtime game, the Fighting Irish never appeared exhausted versus Alabama. They now covered the spread in six of their previous eight games, preserving their best play for the playoffs.

 

On Friday, Texas Tech trounced Montana State, but I’m not putting too much faith in that result. The Red Raiders are 2-5 against the spread in their last 7 matches and 2-7 against ACC opponents in their previous nine.

 

Every year, a team from the First Four makes a deep run in the NCAA Tournament, and Notre Dame is that squad this year. The #11 Notre Dame Fighting Irish will win to a predicted score of 68-63.
