The Boston College Eagles are 8-9 this season and hey have lost five of their last six games. BC is averaging 64.6 points and they are shooting 43.3 percent from the floor while defensively they are allowing 63.8 points and their opponents are shooting 42.2 percent. Olivier Hanlan is averaging 16.3 points per game to lead the Eagles. Aaron Brown is averaging 14.2 points, Patrick Heckmann is averaging 8.2 points, and Dimitri Batten is averaging 8.1 points.

Georgia Tech is 8-2 against the spread against the ACC, 4-1 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the spread, and 4-0 against the spread following a loss by 20 or more points. Boston College is 4-1 against the spread in their last five games, 5-0 against the spread following a loss, and 9-4-1 against the spread in their last 14 road games against a team with a winning home record. The underdog is 12-3-1 against the spread in the last 16 meetings of these two.
Neither of these teams can be counted on for much these days so getting five points with one of them seems to be the play so I will take BC.
