Clemson vs. Boston College Pick
Will No. 25 Clemson keep its strong season going tonight when it goes on the road to face Boston College at 7PM ET?
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Clemson is the slight favorite on the road, as the Tigers are getting odds of -5 points against Boston College. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 141.5 points. Tonight’s game takes place from Silvio Conte Forum in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts and air live on the ACC Network.
Clemson is on an eight-game win streak right now, including a 78-62 victory over N.C. State this past weekend. The Tigers are 12-1 overall, 1-0 in the ACC and 8-2 against the spread. Clemson has covered in five straight games overall and in six straight lined games. The Tigers are putting up 78.5 points per game this year while allowing just 62.6 per contest. Marcquise Reed is leading Clemson with 15.2 points and 5.1 rebounds per game while Donte Grantham is adding 14.6 points and 6.5 rebounds per contest.
Boston College had a five-game win streak snapped at Virginia this past weekend, 59-58. The Eagles are now 10-4 overall, 1-1 in the ACC and 4-4 against the spread. BC has covered in three of its last four lined games. Boston College is averaging 76.4 points per game on offense while allowing 67.9 on defense. At home, the Eagles put up 83 points per game on offense. Jerome Robinson is putting up 17.4 points per game to lead the team while Ky Bowman is adding 15.8 points, 6.8 rebounds and 5.1 assists per contest.
Clemson has won five straight meetings with Boston College, covering the spread in four of the five games. Boston College is just 5-12 ATS in its last 17 games overall and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 ACC games. While the Eagles upset Duke, I don’t see BC putting up consistent performances this year. Clemson has a lot of momentum right now and I think they will come away with a big win on the road. The public betting is with BC at home, but I think the Tigers cover on the road.
