In the Friars game, Boston College’s Jordan Chatman put up 28 points, two assists and two rebounds to lead the way, and Steffon Mitchell logged a double-double with 10 points, 11 rebounds and four assists.
Over on the Texas A&M side, they’re 3-4 this year. The Aggies have fallen to UC Irvine, Gonzaga, Minnesota and Washington this year, but won their last pair versus South Alabama and NW State.
In the Demons game, Texas A&M’s Wendell Mitchell led the way on 18 points and four rebounds. Christian Mekowulu (14 points; two rebounds) and TJ Starks (12 points) were also in double-figures for the Aggies there.
The Eagles are 4-1 ATS in their last five following a straight-up loss and 6-14 ATS in their last 20 road games. BC is also 2-6 ATS in their last eight on the road versus a team with a winning home record and the over is 4-1 in their last five road games.
Meanwhile, the Aggies are 1-4 ATS in their last five following an ATS loss and 1-4 ATS in their last five home games. Texas A&M is also 1-7 ATS in their last eight non-conference games and 1-7 ATS in their last eight overall.
Boston College has been scoring pretty consistently for the most part, even though they’ve had a couple of sub-70 performances on the year. The Eagles are prone to defensive lapses here and there, however, which makes me look closer at Texas A&M on the cover here. That said, the Aggies are ice-cold ATS lately so I’m going Eagles.
