Duke Blue Devils vs Boston College Eagles 1/7/2023 Picks Predictions Previews


The #16 Duke Blue Devils will go against the Boston College Eagles in NCAAB action in Silvio O. Conte Forum, MA, on Saturday, January 7, 2023, at 1:00 PM ET.


In its first season under head coach Jon Scheyer, Duke had a good start. With their two defeats coming against Kansas and Purdue, perhaps the top two teams in college basketball, the Blue Devils dominated 10 of their first 12 games.


During that time, they also defeated Iowa and then-No. 25 Ohio State.


Prior to Christmas, they suffered losses to Wake Forest and NC State, and they have dropped two of their previous 3 matches going into the meeting on Saturday. Duke was a 5-point favorite in the blowout defeat to NC State.


The Blue Devils will be attempting to escape that destiny in this game since they did not lose their first three ACC road matches in six seasons.


They have an attack that ranks No. 30 in KenPom’s modified efficiency ratings going into this game. One of their strengths is that they have the seventh-best offensive rebounding rate in the nation.


Their perimeter shooting was an issue, as they are making just 32.5% of their 3-point attempts. In the opening eight minutes of their defeat to NC State, they failed to score, and they only shot 39.6% from the field overall.


Jeremy Roach, a seasoned guard, is producing 11.9 points per game, while rookie big Kyle Filipowski is leading Duke with 13.8 points and 8.6 rebounds. They are up against Boston College’s No. 91-ranked adjusted efficiency defense.


  • The Duke Blue Devils are 2-4 ATS in their last 6 matches. 
  • The total went OVER in 5 of Duke’s last 7 matches. 
  • The Blue Devils are 15-5 SU in their last 20 matches.

Duke Blue Devils vs Boston College Eagles Predictions 1/7/2023


This year, Boston College previously faced Duke, losing in a final score of 75-59 on December 3 at Cameron Indoor Stadium.


At the time, the Eagles were in the middle of a four-game losing streak during which they also suffered defeats to Nebraska, New Hampshire, and Villanova.


With three victories in their previous four matches, including an overtime victory over Virginia Tech on December 21, they recovered.


Following that, Boston College suffered a 14-point defeat against Syracuse before defeating Notre Dame on Tuesday by a score of 70-63. The Eagles are coming to the end of a six-game span that included five home matches.


They are now ranked No. 324 in KenPom’s effective field goal percentage rankings of 363 Division I teams, making them one of the worst major-conference shooting teams in the sport so far this season.


Boston College is making only 26.5% of their three-point attempts while shooting 67.2% from the line. The Eagles’ low turnover rate was a strength on that side of the floor.


They are up against a Duke defense that ranks No. 35 in overall efficiency and No. 39 in field goal percentage.


Boston College is led by senior guard Makai Ashton-Langford, who averages 11.8 points and 3.2 rebounds per game, and sophomore guard Jaeden Zackery, who scores 10.9 points per game.


  • The Boston College Eagles are 5-10 ATS in their last 15 matches. 
  • The total went OVER in 7 of Boston College’s last 8 matches.

#16 Duke Blue Devils vs Boston College Eagles. The NCAAB pick for this game is the Boston College Eagles. When a big-name team like Duke is having trouble, there is almost always something to be gained.


Despite just covering the spread twice in their previous six games, the Blue Devils will continue to have bettors backing them.


When these teams faced off in December, the Eagles won despite being significant outside underdogs, and Duke’s biggest problems were away from home. The Boston College Eagles will win to a predicted score of 73-62.
