Louisville Struggles on the Road, Boston College Seeks Home Victory

Both teams have encountered challenges throughout the course of this season, as predicted for Louisville. The Cardinals have faced difficulties due to injuries, resulting in the absence of key contributors. On the other hand, Boston College commenced the season with promise but has faced struggles in conference play once again. They have managed to secure 8 victories and suffer 4 defeats at home this season, while Louisville has struggled significantly on away games with only one victory out of eight. The sole triumph on the road was achieved against Miami on January 10, where they concluded the game with a streak of nine consecutive points. Despite Boston College's losses on their home court against Wake Forest, NC State, North Carolina, and Florida State, they have displayed resilience, with the margin of defeat being relatively close in each game. Considering that Louisville is not as formidable as those aforementioned teams, it is plausible to anticipate a home victory for Boston College.
