Notre Dame vs. Boston College Total Pick

College Football Picks: Notre Dame vs. Boston College to hit the under?

Will Notre Dame bounce back from last week’s loss and put up a big number when it takes on Boston College this Saturday at 3:30PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Notre Dame is favored on the road, as the Fighting Irish are getting odds of -13.5 points against the Eagles. The over/under total for the game is listed at 51 points. Notre Dame has won five straight meetings with Boston College and the two have hit the under in seven straight meetings. Saturday’s game will take place from Alumni Stadium in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts. The game will be carried live on ESPN.

Notre Dame fell to 1-1 on the season with a 20-19 loss to Georgia at home last weekend. The Irish are 1-1 with the over/under total as well. ND is putting up 34 points and 436 yards per game this season thanks to their run game, which is averaging 238.5 yards per game.

Boston College is also off to a 1-1 start following a 34-10 loss at home to Wake Forest last week. The Eagles are 2-0 with the under so far, as they are averaging just 16.5 points and 322 yards per game on offense. Freshman Anthony Brown has thrown for 310 yards and three touchdowns this season, but also has four interceptions. Thadd Smith is the leading rusher with 101 yards on 11 carries. Defensively, BC is allowing 27 points and 338 yards per game. They have struggled against the run though, giving up 161 yards per game on the ground.

Bet on Notre Dame vs. Boston College

Notre Dame played in a grinder of a game last week and I see this week’s game being a defensive battle as well. Boston College has been a historically strong defense, especially up front against the run. The Irish aren’t likely to pound the rock as they would like to. The Boston College offense is a mess, so Notre Dame won’t have much difficulty getting defensive stops.
