The Pittsburgh Panthers will be looking for their 13th win of the season when the team travels to the Silvio Conte Forum to take on the Boston College Eagles. Pittsburgh enters this game with a 12-12 record after losing to NC State in its last game. Meanwhile, Boston College is 11-11 this season as it lost Syracuse in its last game. Now, both teams will be looking a win this Tuesday.

Pittsburgh Looks To Snap Losing Streak

Last season, the Pittsburgh Panthers went 8-24 and lost in the first round of its conference tournament to Notre Dame. Pittsburgh entered this season with hopes of drastic improvement as the team hoped to potentially finish the season with a winning record. So far this season, the team has looked significantly better as it has won 12 of its first 24 games. However, Pittsburgh is coming into this game in the midst of a seven-game losing streak including a loss to NC State in its last game. In that game, Pittsburgh’s defense struggled as it allowed 79 points on over 51% shooting from the three-point line. With a conference road game up next, Pittsburgh’s offense will need to play a lot better if the team hopes to end its current losing streak.

The Pittsburgh Panthers are led by freshman guard Xavier Johnson who has been amazing this season. So far this season, he has bursted onto the college basketball scene as he is currently leading the team in scoring with 17.0 points per game on over 39% shooting from the three-point line. As the best player on this year’s team, Johnson needs to be at his best if Pittsburgh plans on covering this spread on the road.

Boston College Looks To Return To Winning

Last season, the Boston College Eagles went 19-16 and lost in the first round of the NIT to Western Kentucky. Boston College entered this season with hopes of drastic improvement as the team hoped to potentially finish the season with an NCAA tournament appearance. However, so far this season, the team has looked a bit worse as it has only won 11 of its first 22 games. To make matters worse, Boston College is entering this game in the middle of a four-game losing streak including one to Syracuse in the team’s last game. In that game, Boston College’s offense was awful as it allowed scored 56 points on less than 34% shooting from the floor. However, with a home game up next, expect Boston College to play a lot better offensively.

The Boston College Eagles are led by junior guard Ky Bowman who has been amazing this season. So far this season, he has carried the team almost single-handedly as he is currently leading the team in scoring with 20.3 points per game along with 7.7 rebounds. As the best player on this year’s team, Bowman has to be on form if Boston College plans on covering this spread at home.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Although both teams have struggled this season, Boston College is decent at home and I think that the Eagles should be able to take care of business in this one. Pittsburgh is currently winless on the road in seven attempts while Boston College has won the majority of its home games this season. I think that Pittsburgh will struggle on the road again. Give me the home favorite in this one as a result.

Prediction: Boston College -3

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Both teams have struggled on both sides of the ball lately but I think that their respective defenses are a bit underrated. With both teams desperately trying to end their respective losing streaks, I think that both teams will look to scrap it out as it should be a struggle for both offenses in this one. Also, four of their last five matchups have gone under the posted total. Therefore, I think this total is a bit too high and I recommend the under in this matchup.

Prediction: Under 143
