The Boston College Eagles and Miami Hurricanes face off on Friday in a college basketball showdown at BankUnited Center,.
The Boston College Eagles come into this game with a 4-14 record and they are coming off a blowout loss against Florida State. The defense really struggled giving up 93 points and that led to a 29 point defeat. Boston College on the season is averaging 72.2 points per game while their defense is giving up 79.1 points per game. One big issue for Boston College is they are banged up and five different players are expected to be out for this game. Guard Jay Heath has been the best player for Boston College averaging 15.4 points while shooting 42.9 percent from the field and 36.4 percent from behind the three point line.
On the other side of this matchup is the Miami Hurricanes who have dealt with injuries all season and coming into this game they have lost six games in a row. Each of the last two games though, Miami has come away with a cover of the spread. On the season Miami is averaging 65.3 points per game while their defense is giving up 71 points per game. Miami is shooting 41.8 percent from the field and 29.4 percent from behind the three point line. Isaiah Wong has been the best player for Miami averaging 17.4 points while shooting 43.6 percent from the field and 35.4 percent from behind the three point line.
The over is 14-2 in Boston College’s last 16 games overall. Boston College is 8-1 against the spread in their last nine meetings against Miami. The underdog is 8-1 against the spread in the last nine meetings played between Boston College and Miami.
I don’t trust laying any amount of points with Miami even at home, and I think Boston College is going to find success. This is the same Boston College team that beat Notre dame two games ago. Back Boston College against the spread.
