Boston College Eagles vs Duke Blue Devils prediction
The Duke Blue Devils are obviously the better team and at home have the ability to blow the doors off in this spot. However, we have to question the motivation for Duke in this spot after just playing big conference games and now getting a slumping Boston College team. Also, Duke has covered just 3 of its last 9 games overall. The Boston College Eagles should be the more motivated side, and BC has given Duke problems in the past, which includes 2 of the last 5 meetings being decided by one point. I'll take a shot with the free buckets.
