Boston College vs Louisville Betting Prediction

Louisville comes into this matchup with the worst record in the ACC and they only have three conference wins on the season. The Cardinals are only shooting 43.5% from the field and they are allowing 79 points against per game this year. Boston College is 7-12 in conference play and they were able to snap their losing streak in their last game against Miami. The Eagles are the better team on both ends of the court, but they are 2-6 in their last eight road games. Boston College did defeat Louisville by a score of 89-77 in their first meeting of the season and I like the Eagles to pick up another win here.
