Boston College vs Wake Forest Prediction: Jaeden Zackery From Downtown

There's only one way to follow up a nooner and that's with another bet. It just makes sense. How could we possibly be expected to not have action on a college hoops game at 2:30 pm ET on a weekday? Especially one that is on national television directly after a game that we just had action on. Now throw in the fact that I found a plus moneyline banger and everyone can see that our hands are tied here. We have to do this.

Jaeden Zackery Over 1.5 Made Threes (+115) (Bet $100 to win $115)

I gave DraftKings all the shine for this one but I could easily have gone to FanDuel since they have the exact same price. Is it fair of me? Probably not but I always check DraftKings first because that's my rotation at the moment. If anything changes with that, I'll make sure to notify everyone.

What got me on to this kid originally was the way he spells his name. You don't see a lot of guys go with the "Jae" at the beginning like that. It's very common to see the "Jay" version. At least for me. So hats off to him for the originality there. It's the reason we're about to win a bet today so we should be thankful.

After a quick Google search, I discovered that this kid is money from behind the arc. We're talking 46.6+% from back there in 100+ attempts people. I couldn't even do that on a video game. It's by far the best on this Boston College team.

For some reason, Zackery didn't lead the team in three-point attempts this season which is pretty dumb. It's the reason why we get a shooter of his ilk at 1.5 for plus money, but still dumb nonetheless. Two guys actually took more threes on the season and one guy only hit 25%. I could do that in real life. Still, over his last eight games, Zackery knocked down two treys in six of those contests so he's definitely seeing enough volume despite the bricklayers taking all the shots.

Today Boston College will probably get pumped by Wake Forest so we could see Zackery play a little more loose. Chuck and duck hopefully but a little more loose is fine with me. Last time these teams met Zackery attempted four in 29 minutes of a 30-point beatdown. We don't know that the starters will get a very quick hook today since it's do or die. I bet Jaeden cans a couple threes this afternoon.
