Virginia to Win, BC to Cover Spread

Boston College knocked a Clemson team with March Madness aspirations out of the ACC tournament. Can the Eagles do the same to a Virginia team looking to strengthen its NCAAB Tournament resume? The college basketball line has Virginia as the favorite as the Eagles eye another upset.

When making March Madness bets, remember that Virginia went into Chestnut Hill and topped the Eagles 72-68 on Feb. 28 as a 1½-point favorite. The Cavaliers have won five of the last six meetings with Boston College and covered in each of those victories. The teams haven’t met in March since 2013, when the Eagles won 53-52.

Boston College vs Virginia ATS Pick: Boston College +5

When Virginia watched Clemson come up short against Boston College, the message was sent that this is not a time of the year to overlook a conference opponent.

Virginia bounced back with a strong showing against Georgia Tech after being run off the court in a matchup with Duke late in the regular season.

Boston College made a late run against Virginia the last time the teams met before falling by four points. It won’t be a surprise to see a similar margin of victory in this game.

Even though just four Virginia players have appeared in every game this season, it should be all hands on deck for the Cavaliers in this game.

 

 

Boston College vs Virginia Over/Under Pick: Over 124

When Virginia is playing, the total is going to be one of the lowest among the Division I men’s games and that is the case in this matchup. Keep that in mind when looking at the best college basketball bets today.

Boston College has scored 81 and 76 points in its first two games in the ACC tournament. Open shots will be harder to come by when facing the Cavaliers.

Virginia is seventh in defensive efficiency according to the Pomeroy College basketball database. However, Boston College is tied for second among ACC teams with 19 games landing over the total. Don’t expect an offensive showcase, but if you are tempted to make a bet on this game, consider going with the game to go over 124 points.

 

Boston College vs Virginia Player Prop Pick: Claudell Harris to score 15+ Points (+144)

Harris went off for 27 points in the win over Clemson. While it might be asking a bit much for him to approach that number against Virginia, the +144 odds for him to have at least 15 points are rather enticing as Harris looks for his fifth straight double-digit scoring game.
