Virginia is Lost

Virginia really looks lost right now and they have lost two games in a row. Even three games ago when they beat Wake Forest, they only scored 49 points. In the last game against North Carolina, the defense gave up only 54 points, but the offense only managed 44 points. Virginia is averaging 63.4 points while their defense is giving up 58.4 points per game. The offense is ranked 354th in the league while the defense is ranked 3rd. It’s a good defensive team, but the offense has been a major issue. Reece Beekman is averaging 13.8 points while shooting 44.6 percent from the field.

Boston College Looks to Bounce Back

Boston College faced off against NC State in the last game and the defense really struggled giving up 81 points and that led to the 11-point defeat. Mason Madsen did have a strong game putting up 21 points, but the defense really let them down. Boston College is averaging 76 points while their defense is giving up 73.5 points per game. The offense is ranked 109th in the league while the defense is ranked 209th. Quinten Post is having a strong season averaging 15.9 points while shooting 50.7 percent from the field and 44.3 percent from behind the three point line. Boston College will take on Pittsburgh, Miami, and Louisville after this one.

Boston College Betting Trends

  • The home team has won six of Boston College’s last seven games.
  • Twenty-one of Boston College’s last 23 night games against non-AP-ranked opponents have produced a total of 128+ points.
  • The home team has won the first half in each of the last three games between Virginia and Boston College.

Virginia vs Boston College Betting Prediction

Boston College is going to get the job done here. I get that Virginia’s defense is good, but this offense is so bad. They are averaging only 63.4 points per game and the last three games it’s been much worse. Boston College is averaging 76 points and they are going to score enough here to really put some separation against Virginia. Back Boston College against the spread here.
