The Notre Dame Fighting Irish (17-10, CONF 8-8) and Boston College Eagles (13-15, CONF 7-10) face off in an ACC showdown at the Conte Forum. Boston College knocked off Notre Dame 73-72 in early December.
Notre Dame comes into this game off back to back wins, but both of those games were at home, and now they travel back onto the road. Away from home Notre Dame has had all kinds of issues sitting with only a 3-6 record, and the biggest issue has been with an offense that is averaging 67.1 points per game.
Overall this season Notre Dame is averaging 75 points per game, so if they want to win this game, the offense needs to be better.
Notre Dame is led by forward John Mooney who is averaging 16.3 points and 12.7 rebounds per game.
Boston College has been up and down, and coming into this game they have lost two games in a row. Each of the last two games, Boston College has failed to reach 66 points and with the way the defense played, that hasn’t been enough.
At home this season, Boston College has an 8-8 record and they are averaging 66 points per game while the defense is giving up 67.1 points.
Over the last five games, Boston College is giving up 77.2 points per game, and if they want to win this game the defense needs to be better.
Boston College is led by Jay Heath and Derryck Thornton who are both averaging 13 points per game.
Notre Dame is 7-2 against the spread in their last nine games overall. Notre Dame is 7-3 against the spread in their last ten games against Boston College.
The over is 9-2 in Notre Dame’s last 11 games overall. The over is 19-7 in Boston College’s last 26 Wednesday games. The under is 10-4 in Boston College’s last 14 home games.
These are two offenses who haven’t been as strong as of late, and that will keep this total low. Each of these teams are averaging right around 67 points per game over the last five, and neither of these teams are going to hit 70 points.
Back the under to cash in this game.
