Point Spread Pick:
Not much to choose from these two with the Irish 0-6 on the road and the Eagles an unimpressive 4-6 at home. It’s not too often that you’ll have us saying that a team who has lost 4 straight games may be playing their best ball of the season. That is the case with Boston College who lost on the road to both Notre Dame and Georgia Tech by 3 and to a very good Virginia by 10. They did lose by 21 to Duke, but the Blue Devils have been on top of their game for weeks.
Take the Boston College Eagles -1.
