The Miami Hurricanes and Boston College Eagles meet Sunday in college basketball action at the Silvio Conte Forum.

The Miami Hurricanes could use a win after losing six of their last eight games. The Miami Hurricanes are averaging 72.8 points on 44.4 percent shooting and allowing 70.6 points on 44.6 percent shooting. Chris Lykes is averaging 17.1 points and 3.3 assists while Zach Johnson is averaging 12.8 points and three rebounds. Anthony Lawrence II is the third double-digit scorer and Dejan Vasiljevic is grabbing 4.5 rebounds. The Miami Hurricanes are shooting 34.7 percent from beyond the arc and 72.6 percent from the free throw line. The Miami Hurricanes are allowing 33.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 30.7 rebounds per game. The Miami Hurricanes have lost all six road games this season.

The Boston College Eagles could also use a win after losing eight of their last 11 games. The Boston College Eagles are averaging 72.1 points on 43.7 percent shooting and allowing 72.3 points on 41.7 percent shooting. Ky Bowman is averaging 20 points and 3.7 assists while Wynston Tabbs is averaging 13.9 points and 3.9 rebounds. Jordan Chatman is the third double-digit scorer and Nik Popovic is grabbing 7.2 rebounds. The Boston College Eagles are shooting 32.8 percent from beyond the arc and 69.5 percent from the free throw line. The Boston College Eagles are allowing 32.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33.5 rebounds per game. The Boston College Eagles have split their last eight home games.

The Hurricanes are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS win, 4-0 ATS in their last 4 vs. Atlantic Coast and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Eagles are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 home games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. Atlantic Coast and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Hurricanes are 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Boston College and 0-6 ATS in the last 6 meetings. The over is 26-10 in Eagles last 36 home games. The over is 11-4 in Hurricanes last 15 road games.

The Boston College Eagles enter this game banged up and are being outscored by an average of 7.8 points in their last five games. The Miami Hurricanes have been god awful on the road this season and haven't played to their potential overall, but they're the more talented team at the end of the day and have won nine of the last 10 meetings against Boston College. Even on the road, I have to back Miami simply due to not trusting Boston College in any shape or form.

Pick:
Miami -2.5
