Pitt vs. Boston College Prediction

I’m looking at Pitt here. The Panthers may have stumbled into inconsistent play as of late, but one thing Boston College has done consistently as of late is lose. The Panthers have been playing the better basketball throughout conference play and are no strangers to going on the road and covering and grabbing wins. I will side with the Panthers on the road in this one.
