Against The Spread Pick
The ACC has overall been disappointing this season and we will see another mediocre game on Saturday evening between the Clemson Tigers and the Boston College Eagles. Clemson does have some signature wins this season, beating Duke earlier in the year and most recently the Louisville Cardinals. That being said, they are still 7-8 in the ACC and are currently not being considered for the Big Dance. Boston College is not any better this season, with an ACC record of 7-9. The Eagles lost to Virginia 78-65 in their last game. While this is the first meeting between these two teams this season, Clemson has won eight in a row against Boston College. The Tigers have been fairly decent ATS away from home, with a record of 6-4, so I lean their way to dominate the Eagles.
Over Under Pick
The total is the play I like more because of how these teams are playing recently. Clemson is averaging just 58.8 points over their last five, yet their defense is only allowing 56.4 points. Boston College’s defense has been horrible recently, allowing 73.4 points over the same stretch of games. However, their offense is scoring just 65.2, so it is not like they are good in that regard either. I look for the Tigers to continue playing some elite defense and will take the under in this game.
