Villanova vs. Boston College Prediction
No. 3 Villanova tips off its season tonight at 9:30 p.m. ET when it takes on Boston College from the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, CT. Despite laying 14.5 points, are the Wildcats still a safe bet to cover the large number?
721 Villanova Wildcats (-14) at 722 Boston College Eagles (+14); o/u 143

Villanova vs. Boston College Betting Prediction
The Wildcats are 19-7-1 against the spread in their last 27 neutral site games as a favorite and are 19-7-1 against the number in their last 27 neutral site games overall. While they are just 2-6 against the number in their last eight games as a favorite dating back to last season, I feel comfortable laying the wood with ‘Nova tonight based on some of Boston College’s shaky trends.
For example, the Eagles are just 1-5 against the spread in their last six games overall, are 1-5 against the number in their last six games as an underdog and have failed to cover in five of their last 17 neutral site games as a dog. For one reason or another, they’ve also struggled to cover on Wednesday as well, posting a 1-4 ATS record on that day of the week.
