Off 3 consecutive defeats, Boston College will be lacking no motivation when it hits the floor to take on a Providence team it has beaten each of the last 3 seasons.
This series has typically been very tight. In fact, in 20 meetings dating back to 1997, no team has won by more than 13 points and that has only been the margin of victory once during this span.
Under coach Donahue, Boston College is 9-2 ATS in all lined road games. It is also 7-0 ATS in all road games following 1 or more consecutive losses. I must also mention the Eagles are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games following a double-digit loss at home.
The Friars are just 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games overall and 6-15 ATS in their last 21 games as a home favorite. Providence hasn't shown it can be trusted laying this many points. Take Boston College.
