Against The Spread Pick
A pair of bottom feeders in the ACC clash at Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum as the Boston College Eagles and Wake Forest Demon Deacons take to the floor. The Eagles have dropped two straight games since their shocking win over Virginia. Wake Forest has lost three-straight games, and it hasn’t been pretty. Both teams are in need of an ACC win, and this is the type of game they can get it. Boston College is 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games, while Wake Forest 1-4 against the spread in their last five games. The Eagles have won six of the last 10 head-to-head meetings, yet the Demon Deacons have fared better when they have met in Winston-Salem. A tough ACC battle, but a lean Wake Forest at home -6.5 is the right play.
Over Under Pick
Offensively both the Eagles and Demon Deacons are pretty limited. Boston College has been held to 60 points or less in their last four games. Wake Forest has had an increase in production, and they have put up solid numbers all season. Six of the Demon Deacons last seven games have had over totals. Boston College and Wake Forest combined for 147 total points in their first meeting this season. An over 138.5 total just doesn’t seem likely here. Play the under.
