The college basketball pick of the day is Notre Dame at Boston College for this Wednesday evening. The Notre Dame Fighting Irish bounced back after losing at Duke with back-to-back victories against North Carolina and Miami, respectively. Last time out, the Fighting Irish won in a comprehensive 87-71 against Miami to position them in the fifth place of the Atlantic Coast Conference.
Notre Dame will take on a Boston College reeling from back-to-back defeats at the hands of Clemson and Virginia. The worrying factor is that both NCAAB games weren’t close, they were outplayed off the court. Despite their supposed bad form, Boston will remain confident in the knowledge that they have toppled Notre Dame in their first meeting.
Notre Dame vs Boston College NCAAB Predictions
Boston has a record of 7-10 in the league, which is good enough for the tenth position in the ACC. The best computer picks for NCAAB will naturally discount Boston’s chances in the match, looking at their position and form. But if you know anything about college hoops, nothing is for certain. Here are some key areas in the game that might shape the matchup:
Boston has more than one person they can rely on for points in the game. Both Derryck Thornton and Jay Heath are tied for the team-high with 13 points per game, while Thornton leads the Eagles with 3.6 assists per game this season.
Notre Dame, on the other hand, has regained confidence and the offensive line up is getting baskets again. Looking at just their last two games, the Irish have averaged 82.0 ppg over in comparison to the three games where they lost two and managed just 56.7 points per game.

While this may be one of the shortest predictions we’ve covered, it speaks to the clear favorite for the tie. Boston does not have the man-power to trouble Notre Dame. Notre Dame will win this game and stretch their winning streak to three games.
