The Miami Hurricanes are 15-9 this season and have lost four of their last five games. Miami is averaging 67.6 points and they are shooting 43.6 percent while defensively they are allowing 62.4 points and their opponents are shooting 42.4 percent.

Boston College is 1-4 against the spread in their last five home games against Miami and 2-6 against the spread in their last eight games against Miami. Miami is 1-4 against the spread in their last five games and 11-5-1- against the spread in their last 17 road games against a team with a winning home record. The favorite has covered the point spread in five of the last seven meetings of these two.
Miami has fallen flat on their face in games like this recently, basically games that look like easy wins or at least very winnable, and I see no reason t have confidence that trend changes here so my play is BC who should win outright.
