Boston College vs. Miami Florida
Prediction: BC +14
Miami remains undefeated in the ACC following a one-point win at NC State on Saturday and it has to be careful of a letdown/lookahead with North Carolina on deck.
Miami has now won nine straight games including all eight in the SEC following a big road victory at NC State on Saturday. The Hurricanes are now on a breather alert following four straight wins since facing Boston College in the first meeting this season. An additional problem is the fact that Miami has a rematch with North Carolina on deck for Saturday putting it in a tough sandwich spot here. The Hurricanes won that first meeting over the Eagles by only a point so they will not be taking them lightly but at the same time, I can see a far from focused effort as just coasting along to get the win here is a definite possibility. Boston College is coming off a win at home against Clemson on Saturday to mover to 2-6 in the ACC. The Eagles have been more than competitive though as they are 5-3 ATS in those games as this is the biggest number it has seen in conference action and by a big amount. Miami is a perfect 7-0 ATS at home so the linesmakers had to adjust and this is the first time all season the Hurricanes are favored by double-digits. Being undefeated in the ACC and undefeated against the number at home will do that. Also, we play against favorites of 10 to 19.5 points that are coming off a road win by three points or less, with a winning record on the season playing a losing team. This situation is 63-33 ATS (65.6 percent) over the last five seasons. Play (521) Boston College Eagles -Matt Fargo
