BAYLOR (-6) OVER NOTRE DAMENotre Dame looked sluggish down the stretch against UConn. It looked as though the altitude was affecting their players and they were running out of gas at the end of regulation. They were able to turn it on and pull out a victory in OT. Notre Dame has played inspired throughout the tournament in attempting to get back to the Championship Game and avenge their defeat from last season. But Baylor is undefeated for a reason. Notre Dame is going to come out sluggish. Baylor looked great closing out Stanford Sunday night. I expect them to carry that momentum into the game tonight, build an early lead, and protect that lead throughout the game. Back in November, Baylor beat Notre Dame by 13. I expect a similar result tonight as Baylor wins big and finishes the season 40-0.
