This Tuesday evening, the Miami Hurricanes face off with the Boston College Eagles at the Conte Forum in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts.

Let’s take a look at this ACC clash from a betting perspective.

Boston College is clearly a team looking for answers. Through 11 games played, the Eagles only have two wins this season. Additionally, Boston College has yet to notch a win in ACC conference play. Believe it or not, the Eagles have lost five consecutive conference games to start the season. As a matter of fact, dating back to last season, the Eagles have lost 12 consecutive conference games.

Can Boston College capture the team’s first conference win at home versus Miami? Well, the Eagles did show signs of life in a 83-82 loss to the 21st ranked Duke Blue Devils in Durham, NC last week. To be candid, I don’t see the momentum from the close loss to Duke translating to a win against the Miami Hurricanes. Why? The answer to that question lies in the data. Boston College shot 56.1% (32-57) from the field and 56.3% (9-16) from beyond the arc in last week’s loss to Duke. I don’t think that the Eagles shooting percentage versus Duke is sustainable and it will likely not continue on Tuesday. After all, there is a reason the Eagles are 2-9 on the season. 

The Hurricanes are led by senior guard Isaiah Wong. Wong leads the team in average points scored per game (17.5) and average minutes played per game (35.2). It should be noted that Wong has started to shoot the basketball better from beyond the arc. Over his last five games played, Wong is shooting 32% from three point range. 

The Boston College Eagles are 1-3 ATS at home. In direct contrast to that, the Miami Hurricanes are 2-0 ATS on the road this season.
