Boston College vs. Clemson Free Pick
In what should be a rout, No. 5 Clemson will host Boston College at 7:00PM ET tonight.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Mybookie.ag, the Tigers are 16.5-point home favorites versus the Eagles while the over/under currently sits at 36.5 points for tonight's game. Boston College enters play with a 3-3 record and is 2-3 against the spread, while Clemson is 5-0 overall and 3-2 at the betting window.
The Eagles lost 3-0 last week at home versus Wake Forest and while they have the No. 1 defense in the nation in total yards allowed, passing yards allowed and rushing yards allowed per game, they have zero offense. And it's not as if Clemson is a slouch defensively, as the Tigers rank 13th in total yards allowed, 19th in rushing yards allowed and 19th in points allowed per game.
The Tigers are 5-1 against the spread in their last six home games and 5-2 ATS in their last seven games overall. Assuming they don't overlook the Eagles, then they should eventually pull away in the second half. Boston College will bring its best defensively but that unit could also be hung out to dry by a punchless offense.
