Boston College Eagles (15-10; 10-9 ATS; 11-7 O/U) vs. Pittsburgh Panthers (8-18; 11-10 ATS; 4-17 O/U)

The last place Pittsburgh Panthers will host the Boston College Eagles in an ACC tilt Tuesday evening from the Petersen Events Center. The Eagles edged 25th ranked Miami 72-70 on Saturday, and the Panthers were crushed 94-60 by Louisville on Sunday. This is the first meeting this season, and Pittsburgh won the lone meeting last season by an 83-72 score.

Eagles Stun #25 Miami with Late Comeback

The Boston College Eagles scored nine unanswered points to finish the game in their 72-70 win against #25 Miami on Saturday to improve their ACC record to 5-7. The Eagles shot a terrific 50% against a tough defense, and limited Miami to a 43% shooting effort. Eagles’ leading scorer Jerome Robinson was outstanding once again, collecting 29 points on 10 for 15 shooting. The junior guard is red-hot, averaging a sizzling 29.4 points in his last 5 games, increasing his season average to 20.4 points on 50% field goal percentage. Ky Bowman also played a big role in Saturday’s win, recording 24 points and 12 rebounds. The sophomore guard has reached 20 points in three of his last five games and is currently posting an average of 16.9 points and 7.2 rebounds per game.

The Eagles have won two out of their last three games, and they have been very competitive in many of their losses. They have lost all five conference road games and are ranked at 81st overall in Ken Pomeroy’s college basketball rankings. Boston College is on a roll offensively and are now averaging 75.9 points per game, ranking them 119th overall. They are allowing an average of 72.8 points, positioning them 189th overall.

Pittsburgh Drops to 0-13 in ACC Play

The Pittsburgh Panthers continued their poor offensive play with a rough 94-60 home loss to Louisville on Sunday to plummet 0-13 in ACC play. The Panthers shot an abysmal 34.5% from the field, while Louisville was able to sink 63% of their field goals. Panthers’ leading scorer Jared Wilson-Frame struggled in the loss, going 3 for 10 from the field for a total of 11 points. The junior guard has only scored a combined 17 points in his last two games and is currently averaging 12.7 points on 37% shooting. Parker Stewart had some success against Louisville, netting 12 points on a 4 for 8 shooting performance. The freshman guard is struggling to put any nice streaks together like most of the Panthers and is now posting an average of 8.3 points per game.

The Panthers have dropped 13 consecutive games as they are not scoring nearly enough points to give them a chance to win. They have failed to reach 70 points in each game in their losing streak, and are placed down at 223rd overall in Ken Pomeroy’s college basketball rankings. Pittsburgh is only averaging 63 points per game, ranking them 346th in the country. They are allowing an average of 72.2 points, positioning them at 171st overall.

Trends:

The Boston College Eagles are:

  •  No Key Trends

The Pittsburgh Panthers are:

  • 2-9-1 ATS in their last 12 home games against a team with a road winning percentage below .400.
  • 7-19 ATS in their last 26 Tuesday games.
  • 11-27-1 ATS in their last 39 home games against a team with a losing road record.

I am taking Boston College in this matchup. Pittsburgh continues to struggle, scoring 69 or fewer points in eight out of their last ten games, and they are now shooting a poor 41% on the season. The Eagles just held a ranked Miami team to 70 points on Saturday, and they should have no problem defending the Panthers. Furthermore, Boston College has scored at least 80 points in three of their last four games, and their top two scorers Jerome Robinson and Ky Bowman have both been tough to contain. The Eagles also have the rebounding edge, and they should notch a convincing win.
