Boston College is 5-1 ATS in their last six road games versus a team with a winning home record, and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games on field turf. Boston College is also 1-4 ATS against teams with winning records and 1-8-1 ATS in their last 10 conference games.

There’s not a whole lot to get excited about here betting-wise. Neither Boston College nor Wake Forest inspires a whole lot of confidence with their recent play. Still, the Demon Deacons have run a pretty bad gauntlet of games recently and haven’t shown any signs of life at all. Boston College just seems a little hotter coming into this one, so I’ll take the Eagles to cover.
