The Boston College Eagles need a victory after losing six of their last seven games. The Boston College Eagles are averaging 66.2 points on 41.3 percent shooting and allowing 67.2 points on 44 percent shooting. Eli Carter is averaging 16.2 points and 4.1 assists while Jerome Robinson is averaging 11.7 points and 4.2 rebounds. Dennis Clifford is grabbing 6.9 rebounds and A.J. Turner is dishing one assist.

The Blue Hens are 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 road games and 5-1-1 ATS in their last 7 Saturday games. The Eagles are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up win of more than 20 points and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games overall.
I don't like either of these teams as they're as inconsistent as they come. However, Boston College is at home and has the best overall player in the game in Carter leading the way. The Eagles should win and cover the small number.
