Louisville vs Boston College Prediction Tonight

Have you ever looked in your fridge and all you’ve got is some tuna salad and the crumbs of a two-week old sandwich? You’re hungry, but I mean, neither option sounds very good? That’s where we’re at with this game. These are two bad teams and we’re stuck between tuna and crumbs.

Losers of three straight, Louisville’s calling card is a defense that ranks 61st nationally in adjusted defensive efficiency per Bart Torvik. They’re a good on-ball defensive team and rebound well but don’t force many turnovers, leading to longer possessions. The Cardinals struggle tremendously to score and are 157th in 2-point percentage and 274th in 3-point percentage.

This profiles similarly to an Eagles squad that is 259th in in 2-point percentage and 143rd in 3-point shooting. Just like the Cardinals, Boston College plays at a slow pace and does not force turnovers, so there should be limited fast break points and long possessions with a lot of clanks off the rim.

When I have two teams that play at a slow pace and don’t score effectively, I tend to side with the underdog. 7.5 is too many points for a Louisville team that doesn’t put teams away. I struggle to see either of these teams getting to 70 points as well, so I’ll make both Boston College +7.5 and the under 138.5 my best bets of the day. Get the tuna ready.

Make your pick now on WynnBET.
