The Boston University Terriers and Holy Cross Crusaders face off on Wednesday in a college basketball at the Hart Center.
These two teams played two games over the weekend with each team winning one of the games. On Saturday it was Holy Cross that won 82-65 but on Sunday it was Boson that won 86-68. Both of these teams have been a little inconsistent, and it showed with their play over the weekend.
The Boston University Terriers come into this game with an 4-6 record overall and they have won three of their last four games. The biggest issue for this Boston University has been with the inconsistency of the offense. Just two games ago they only scored 65 points and it wasn’t enough to come away with the victory. Boston on the season is averaging 69.3 points per game while their defense. Boston is averaging 69.3 points while their defense is giving up 76.1 points per game. Guard Javante McCoy has been the best player averaging 17 points.
On the other side of this matchup is the Holy Cross Crusaders who sit with a 3-9 record overall and their only win over the last eight games was against Boston two games in a row.

Boston is 4-13 against the spread in their last 17 games overall. The over is 6-2 in Holy Cross last eight games played on Wednesday. Holy Cross is 3-8 against the spread in their last 11 home games.
Boston is the better team and I think that one win by Holy Cross over them on Saturday was more of just a fluke. Look for Boston University to come away with a cover of the spread.
