Boston College Eagles (13-6; 7-6 ATS; 7-6 O/U) vs. Louisville Cardinals (14-4; 9-7 ATS; 8-7 O/U)

Line: Louisville -10

Total: 145.5

The Louisville Cardinals will aim for their fourth straight win when they host the Boston College Eagles Sunday afternoon from the KFC Yum Center. The Eagles recorded a solid 81-75 home win over Florida State in their latest contest this past Monday, and the Cardinals edged Notre Dame 82-78 in overtime in their previous action. Louisville notched a 90-67 victory against Boston College in the only meeting last season.

Eagles Stun Seminoles

The Boston College Eagles head into this one full of confidence after notching an 81-75 home win against Florida State on Monday to even their conference record to 3-3. The Eagles shot 46% and drilled nine three-pointers, while holding the Seminoles to 33.8% shooting. Eagles’ leading scorer Jerome Robinson was outstanding, going 7 for 11 from the field for a total of 19 points. The junior guard has surpassed 20 points eight times this season, and features a dazzling 46% mark three-point range. He is currently averaging 18.2 points per game. Ky Bowman also had a big night in the win against Florida State, netting 19 points along with 13 rebounds for his fourth double-double of the season. The sophomore guard is on a roll, scoring at least 19 points in three consecutive games, and is now up to 16.4 points and 7.1 rebounds per game.

The Eagles have won three out of their last four games and they have displayed significant improvement after only winning three conference games last season. They are now ranked at 75th in the country in Ken Pomeroy’s college basketball rankings. Boston College is averaging 76.3 points per game, ranking them 131st overall. They are conceding an average of 70.4 points, positioning them 132nd overall.

Cardinals Edge Notre Dame in Third Straight Win

The Louisville Cardinals persevered for a thrilling 82-78 overtime road win against Notre Dame on Tuesday to improve to 4-1 in ACC play. The Cardinals converted on 49% of their field goal attempts and limited the Fighting Irish to 38% shooting. Ray Spalding played a key role in the victory, sinking 23 points along with 12 rebounds for his seventh double-double of the season. The junior forward has been very effective in ACC play, and is now up to 11.7 points and 9.2 rebounds per game. Cardinals’ leading scorer Deng Adel contributed with 14 points on a 6 for 12 mark from the field in the win against Notre Dame. The junior forward has progressed nicely from last season, and is currently averaging 15.7 points on a 48% field goal percentage.

The Cardinals are looking good, riding a three game winning streak which included a 73-69 win against Florida State. They have only lost once at home this season and are positioned at 36th in the country in Ken Pomeroy’s college basketball rankings. Louisville is currently averaging 77.8 points per game, ranking them 93rd overall. They are a strong defensive team and are holding opponents to 67.9 points, placing them 78th in the country.

Trends:

The Boston College Eagles are:

  • 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games against the ACC.
  • 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games against a team with a winning record.
  • 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as an underdog.
  • 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games following an ATS win.

The Louisville Cardinals are:

  • 2-6 ATS in their last 8 Sunday games.

I am taking the points with Boston College in this contest. Boston College has been very competitive in ACC play, and they are strong enough in both ends of the court to keep this one close. The Eagles are holding opponents to 41% shooting on the season, and they just defeated Florida State, and only lost by four points to Clemson and only one point on the road against Virginia. Also, Boston College has showed they can neutralize talented offensive teams, and their top scorers Jerome Robinson and Ky Bowman are both on a roll.
