I get the case to be made on either side here but I think the better play in this game is the under. Boston College has become a more defense-first team, maybe because there isn’t really an offense to speak of, but either way, it’s resulted in the Eagles being in a lot of low-scoring games. Stonehill isn’t great offensively, but they’re even worse on defense. Even still, I don’t think BC will fully take advantage here and I think this one ends up in a 68-56 kind of game so give me the under here.
