Two more ACC teams who could very well shock the world and win an NCAA Basketball championship this season—Notre Dame and Virginia—meet in the last Quarterfinals game of the day. With the Fighting Irish enjoying maximum rest and the Cavaliers having to play rugged Pitt in the last game on Wednesday, will Notre Dame have an energy edge heading in here in this great Quarterfinals showdown?

Virginia vs. Notre Dame

Thursday’s last ACC Quarterfinals matchup sees Bonzie Colson (17.0 ppg, 10.4 rpg) and underrated Notre Dame (60/1 to win NCAA championship, JustBet) lace up their sneakers to face London Perrantes and Virginia (18-11 ATS), owners of the the nation’s best Scoring Defense (54.9 ppg). Matt Farrell and the Fighting Irish (16-8-1 ATS) come in 6-2 ATS its L8 overall and having played 4 consecutive Unders. When these two met in the Regular Season, Notre Dame lost outright to the Hoos as 1½-point chalks in South Bend on Jan. 24, 71-54 (129½), in a game that died 4½ points Under the Total. The Trends reveal Virginia (9-19 O/U) have now played 5 Unders in its L6 games after an Over in its 75-63 victory (117) on Wednesday against Pittsburgh in the Second Round, a game the Cavaliers covered as 9½-point Favorites. Expect a semi-cautious effort from both sides here with Notre Dame and Virginia having already basically punched their tickets for The Big Dance and more March Madness through their stellar play in the Regular Season.
