According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Tigers are 16.5-point favorites versus the Eagles while the over/under currently sits at 43.5 points. While the side opened at Clemson -16.5 and hasn't moved, the total has dropped from 45 down to 43.5.
Clemson enters play with a perfect 5-0 record and is 3-2 against the spread, covering in three straight games entering play this week. The Tigers upset Louisville 42-36 as a 1-point home underdog last Saturday night in what turned out to be an epic game. Deshaun Watson completed 20-of-31 passes for 306 yards with five touchdowns and three interceptions in the victory, while Wayne Gallman rushed 16 times for 110 yards and a touchdown. Watson also added 91 yards on 14 rush attempts as well.
Boston College has won two straight games after it was blanked 49-0 by Virginia Tech in Week 3 of the season. But while the Eagles are now 3-2 on the year straight up, they're just 2-2-1 at the betting window. They did cover as an 18-point favorite last Saturday versus Buffalo.
OUR PICK: The Eagles are the perfect under team for bettors because they rank 1st defensively in total yards allowed, 1st in total passing yards allowed, seventh in rushing yards allowed, and 16th in the nation in points allowed per game. Conversely, they average just 23.4 points per game on offense, which ranks 100th in the country. The under is 5-2 in the last seven meetings between these two teams and has cashed in 10 of the Eagles' last 11 home games.
