The Boston College Eagles are piling up the losses left and right and are one of the worst defensive teams in the country right now. The Duke Blue Devils struggled out of the gate and it's going to be interesting to see how the respond playing their first game in over three weeks. Usually I'd predict rust for Duke and just grab the points, but the Blue Devils have the talent and the offensive ability to give a struggling defensive team like BC issues. It's the Duke Blue Devils in a comfortable home win or pass for me.
