College Basketball Betting Trends

Florida State

The Seminoles are 1-3-1 ATS in their last five road games. Florida State is 1-5 ATS in its last six Sunday games.

Boston College

The Eagles are 5-2 ATS in their last seven Sunday games. Boston College is 0-6 ATS in its last six home games.

Prediction:

While Boston College is looking for an elusive ACC win, FSU hasn't been able to put it together either lately with much more promise surrounding its team this season. The Seminoles are very strong defensively as they rank 17th nationally in adjusted efficiency and recently took Duke to the wire. I'm going to chalk the last loss as a letdown and bet on Florida State to bounce back in a big way here.
