Free Wake Forest Demon Deacons vs. Boston College Eagles NCAAB Prediction:
I like Wake Forest in this game to cover the number which is practically a pick em. I think Wake Forest have started to play better basketball attributed by their 2-2 record in their last 4 games. They will have to travel and get a win but they could potentially be getting a few players back while Boston College could be missing a few key players which will affect their rotation. The key to this could be the charity stripe, one team Wake Forest is 59th in the country while Boston College is 221st.
