Randy’s Pick

We're going to find out more about both of these teams as they're both off to fast starts but haven't played anybody yet. The Boston College Eagles have the edge at home and do have more scoring depth, which probably gives them the edge. The Richmond Spiders had issues on the road last season and can be spotty defensively at times. Money keeps pouring in on BC, and I'm going to follow the steam by backing the Eagles.
