ACC College Basketball Predictions: Boston College vs. Virginia 12/30/17

Can Boston College upset another ACC opponent when the Eagles go on the road to face No. 9 Virginia today at 2PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Virginia is the clear favorite in this game, as the Cavaliers are getting odds of -15.5 points against Boston College. The over/under total for the contest is listed at 129 points. Today’s game takes place from John Paul Jones Arena in Charlottesville, Virginia and will air live on the ACC Network.

Boston College is rolling right now, winning five straight coming into today’s game. That includes a big 89-84 upset of Duke as a 15-point underdog. BC is now 10-3 overall and 3-4 against the spread. The Eagles have covered in two of their last three lined games. BC is averaging 77.8 points per game on offense while allowing 68.5 on defense. Ky Bowman is averaging 16.6 points, 6.6 rebounds and 5.4 assists per game to lead Boston College while Jerome Robinson is adding 16.5 points per game.

Virginia is on a three-game win streak right now, but that has been against lower competition. Virginia is now 11-1 on the season while putting up a 7-2 record against the spread. The Cavs have covered in six of their last seven lined contests. Virginia is averaging 72.1 points per game this year while holding opponents to just 52.3 per contest on defense. Kyle Guy is putting up 16.1 points per game to lead the Cavs this season while Devon Hall is adding 12.4 points and 4 rebounds per game.

Bet on Boston College vs. Virginia

Virginia has won four straight meetings with Boston College, but the Eagles have covered the spread in five of the last eight in this series. That includes two straight trips to Virginia. The Cavs are a defensive team, but their offense can go cold for spurts. That is concerning when dealing with a 15-point spread. Boston College showed its potential in the win over Duke and I think the Eagles have enough to keep this competitive. The public betting is siding with Boston College today as well.
