BC loses two straight
After a 27-7 loss at home to Clemson two weeks ago, Boston College was unable to bounce back last week, suffering a 22-21 loss at Florida State. The Eagles are now 7-4 overall and 4-3 in the ACC. Boston College is 7-4 overall, 4-3 in the ACC, 7-4 against the spread and 6-5 with the under. BC has also failed to cover in both losses.
The Eagles have been known for defense most of the time, as they are giving up just 24.2 points and 381.4 yards per game. When it comes to offense, the Eagles are putting up 33 points and 408.7 yards per contest. AJ Dillon is leading the offense with 1,052 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns. Anthony Brown has thrown for 1,870 yards and 17 touchdowns with seven interceptions while Kobay White has 500 receiving yards on 31 catches with three touchdowns.
Orange fall to the Irish
Syracuse was on a roll heading into last week’s matchup with Notre Dame at Yankee Stadium. The Irish rolled to a 36-3 victory. The Orange are 8-3 overall and 5-2 in the ACC. Syracuse is 8-3 overall, 5-2 in the ACC, 7-3-1 against the spread and 6-5 with the over. Last week saw them end a three-game cover streak as well.
The Orange are putting up big numbers on offense this year despite struggling last week. They are putting up 40.6 points and 459.6 yards per game. Eric Dungey is leading the offense with 2,203 passing yards and 14 touchdowns while also rushing for 698 yards and 12 touchdowns. Moe Neal is the leading rusher with 790 yards and five touchdowns while Jamal Custis has 43 catches for 758 yards and five scores.

College Football Betting Trends
Boston College is 12-3-1 ATS in their last 16 conference games and 7-3-1 ATS in their last 11 home games.
Syracuse is 8-3 against the spread in their last 11 road games and 5-2 ATS in their last seven conference games.
BC hasn’t looked good the last two weeks. Their defense hasn’t been as dominant and their offense has been lacking. Syracuse has an offense that should give the Eagles some problems. The Orange will be motivated to prove they are still a solid team after being destroyed by ND last week. Dungey is a dangerous player that will find some holes in the BC defense. I don’t think the Cuse will have to score a lot to cover either. Give me the Orange with the points.
