With only a single win in the ACC the Fighting Irish are going to be looking to bring home a win in this game here, but it is going to be more of a challenge than what the Irish are thinking, even if they are fairly evenly matched when they are facing the equally unlucky Boston College team. The big difference is the Boston College team was able to bring home an additional win on the year in conference play this year and that could make it rather easier for the Eagles to win this game, but it could be an issue for the Eagles is they have not played as many games as the Irish. The Irish on the season have relied on John Mooney to do most of the scoring as he has 14.3 points in 28 minutes a game. When it comes to passing the Irish have relied on TJ Gibbs who has managed to get 3.8 assist a game. The rebounding for the Irish has been handled by Mooney as well with 10.8 boards a game.

The Boston College team has relied on Ky Bowman for the scoring as he has managed to get 20.5 points a game in almost 39 minute a game. The Eagles have been getting 3.6 assist a game from Bowman as well. When it comes to cleaning up the glass the Eagles have been able to rely on Steffon Mitchell who has pulled down 7.9 boards a game.

The Irish have been playing decent on the season, but still have struggled quite a bit in the ACC this year. What has hurt the Irish on the year has been the fact that Mooney is only able to play 28 minutes a game, unlike Bowman who has really been the go to for the Eagles. Look for Bowman to continue to be the go to play here as the Eagles run the ball and offensive sets rather easily in the game here. Final Score Prediction, Boston College Eagles win and cover ATS 76-70.
