The IUPUI Jaguars and Boston College Eagles meet Wednesday in college basketball action at the Silvio Conte Forum.

The IUPUI Jaguars look for a big road victory to get a game above a .500 record. The IUPUI Jaguars are averaging 70 points on 37.2 percent shooting and allowing 73.5 points on 42 percent shooting. Camron Justice is averaging 15 points and 1.5 assists while Jaylen Minnett is averaging 14 points and three rebounds. Grant Weatherford is the third double-digit scorer and Elyjah Goss is grabbing nine rebounds. The IUPUI Jaguars are shooting 30.8 percent from beyond the arc and 72.7 percent from the free throw line. The IUPUI Jaguars are allowing 32.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 37 rebounds per game. The IUPUI Jaguars have lost 13 of their last 15 road games.

The Boston College Eagles look for another victory to improve to a solid 3-0 start to the season. The Boston College Eagles are averaging 73.5 points on 41.5 percent shooting and allowing 61 points on 34.5 percent shooting. Ky Bowman is averaging 22.5 points and four assists while Wynston Tabbs is averaging 15.5 points and 3.5 rebounds. Jordan Chatman is the third double-digit scorer and Nik Popovic is grabbing 8.5 rebounds. The Boston College Eagles are shooting 25 percent from beyond the arc and 71 percent from the free throw line. The Boston College Eagles are allowing 35.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44 rebounds per game. The Boston College Eagles have won five of their last six home games.

The Jaguars are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games, 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 non-conference games and 5-1-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Eagles are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 non-conference games. The over is 14-6-1 in Eagles last 21 overall and the under is 5-1 in Jaguars last 6 overall.

The Boston College Eagles haven't been good enough offensively two games into the season to just be throwing out these big numbers. Boston College has also failed to cover three of its last four games when a double-digit favorite. The IUPUI Jaguars hung around with Xavier in their season opener and have had success ATS recently, especially on the road when getting these big numbers. I'll take a shot with the points.

Pick:
IUPUI Jaguars +16
