The South Florida Bulls travel to Massachusetts to face Boston College on Monday looking to hold a sixth straight opponent to 58 or fewer points to start the season.

South Florida Bulls vs. Boston College Eagles (-6.5, 120)

(stats as of Sunday morning)

The Bulls are 23rd in America in points allowed on a per-possession basis and are 348th in the country in possessions per game, while Boston College is 332nd in this category. Expect a slow-paced game.

The Eagles are shooting 37.8 percent of their shots from 3-point range, but have made 28.2 percent of those shots, which is 332nd in the country.

South Florida is giving up just 10 free throw attempts per game, which is the fourth-fewest in the country and they shoot just 62.1 percent at the free throw line as a team, so those points shouldn't be a big factor.

With Boston College allowing opponents to rebound just 17.2 percent of their missed shots, which ranks eighth among Division I teams, and South Florida ranked 305th in points scored on a per-possession basis, it will be a struggle for either team to score on Monday.

Pick: Under 120
