5* NCAAB HARDWOOD HIGH ROLLER
Harvard vs. Boston College,
12/29/2011 19:00 EDT,
Score: 67 - 46
Point Spread: -12/-108 Harvard
I haven't seen enough out of Boston College to believe they can hang with Harvard, even with the game being played on their home court. The Eagles have won three straight coming into the game, but all of those wins came against inferior opponents. Boston College is just 5-7 on the season with six double-digit losses.
Harvard is an impressive 10-1 on the season with their only loss coming at Connecticut after they opened the season 8-0. They have since bounced back with a couple of solid wins, knocking of Boston U 76-52 and Florida Atlantic 63-51.
The only time Harvard has struggled this season is when they don't shoot well. I don't see the Eagles putting up much of a fight defensively in this game. Boston College is allowing opponents to shoot over 43% from the field.
Harvard is 11-5 ATS in their last 16 games vs. a team with a losing S.U. record, 10-4 ATS in their last 14 non-conference games, and a perfect 4-0 ATS in their last 4 vs. ACC. BET THE CRIMSON -12!
