The Boston College Eagles and NC State Wolfpack meet Wednesday in college basketball action at the PNC Arena.

The Boston College Eagles look for a victory after splitting their last eight games. The Boston College Eagles are averaging 71.8 points on 43.7 percent shooting and allowing 71.6 points on 41.5 percent shooting. Ky Bowman is averaging 19.5 points and 3.9 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 7.5 rebounds. The Boston College Eagles are shooting 33 percent from beyond the arc and 69.9 percent from the free throw line. The Boston College Eagles are allowing 31.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33.8 rebounds per game. The Boston College Eagles have lost five of their last six road games.

The NC State Wolfpack also need a win after losing five of their last eight games. The NC State Wolfpack are averaging 81.6 points on 47.2 percent shooting and allowing 70.9 points on 44 percent shooting. Torin Dorn is averaging 13.8 points and 6.7 rebounds while C.J. Bryce is averaging 12.2 points and 1.8 assists. Markell Johnson is the third double-digit scorer and Devon Daniels is grabbing 4.4 rebounds. The NC State Wolfpack are shooting 36.6 percent from beyond the arc and 69.9 percent from the free throw line. The NC State Wolfpack are allowing 29.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 34.4 rebounds per game. The NC State Wolfpack have split their last six home games.

The Eagles are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS win and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 road games. The Wolfpack are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Wednesday games. The under is 4-0 in Eagles last 4 overall. The under is 4-0 in Wolfpack last 4 home games. The Eagles are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings. The underdog is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings. The home team is 13-3 ATS in the last 16 meetings.

The Boston College Eagles have found some recent success, but they haven't been able to match that energy on the road where they shoot just 39.5 percent from the field and lose by an average of 7.6 points. The NC State Wolfpack have had some recent hiccups, but a lot of those losses came on the road against some of the top teams in the ACC. At home this season, NC State shoots 47.7 percent from the field and wins by an average of 18.1 points. Boston College is an impressive 7-2 ATS on the road this season, but I'm not sure I trust the Eagles offensively against an NC State team that chews up and spits out teams at home. I'll take the Wolfpack in a double-digit victory. 

Pick:
North Carolina State -10.5
