Eastern Washington Eagles vs. Boston College Eagles

Where: Silvio Conte Forum, Chestnut Hill, MA

When: Wednesday, November 20, 7:00 PM. ET.

The Boston College Eagles will be trying to bounce back from their first loss of the season when they take on the Eastern Washington Eagles in the Gotham Classic on Wednesday night.

Eagles Going For Third Win In Four Games

The Eagles had their two-game winning streak snapped by Saint Louis in their last game and will be trying to rebound from the loss with a win over Boston College, which will give them their second win in their last three games.

Eastern Washington has played well offensively, averaging 80.3 points per game. The team is shooting 42 percent from the field and 33 percent from three-point range.

In their last game, the Eagles were held to 60 points by the Billikens. They shot 301 percent from the field and 34 percent from three-point range in the game.

Kim Aiken Jr. led the Eagles in the losing effort with 13 points, 13 rebounds, three assists, and three steals. Mason Peatling added 10 points and six rebounds, while Tyler Kidd finished with 10 points and two steals.

The Eagles have played well defensively, holding opponents to 57.7 points per game, but they struggled against the Billikens and gave up a season-high 82 points. They will need to play better than they did in that game if they want to pick up the win against Boston College on Wednesday.

Eagles Going For Fourth Win In Five Games

The Eagles suffered their first loss of the season in their last game thanks to a poor defensive effort, allowing Belmont to score 100 points against them. With another good offensive team coming to town, the team will need to quickly regroup with a better defensive effort if they want to avoid another loss and pick up their fourth win in their last five games.

Boston College is averaging 73.8 points per game, shooting 46 percent from the field and 30 percent from three-point range. They shot the ball well in their last game on their way to a season-high 85 points. The Eagles finished the game shooting 55 percent from the field and 44 percent from three-point range.

Nik Popovic led the way for the Eagles with 23 points and five rebounds. Derryck Thornton finished with 15 points, three rebounds, seven assists, and two steals, while Jay Heath added 10 points for the Eagles.

The Eagles had played well defensively before their game against Belmont, but gave up a season-high 100 points in the loss, raising their point per game average to 65.8 points per game. They will need to play significantly better than they did against the Bruins if they want to win this game.

Best Bets for this Game

Rating:

The Eastern Washington Eagles are the best bet here because they have a more balanced team and have played well against the spread. They have a very good defense that is holding opponents to 57.7 points per game, which will cause problems for Boston College’s offense, which is averaging 73.8 points per game. Eastern Washington has also played well offensively, averaging 80.3 points per game and should be able to put up points against Boston College’s defense, which is giving up 65.8 points per game. With Eastern Washington playing better on offense and defense, picking them to cover the spread makes the most sense.
