The NC State Wolfpack and Boston College Eagles face off on Saturday in an ACC showdown at BC Alumni Stadium. When these two teams faced off in 2019, Boston College came away with the 45-24 victory. 

NC State comes into this game with a 4-1 record and their only loss came against Mississippi State. Two games ago against Clemson, it took overtime but NC State was able to come away with the six point victory. NC State has a strong offense, but more impressive has been the team’s defense. NC State is giving up only 15.8 points per game which is 11th best in college football. On offense, the Wolfpack are led by Devin Leary who has thrown for 1,283 yards, 12 touchdowns, and two interceptions. Zonovan Knight has been the star on the ground rushing for 462 yards and three touchdowns. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Boston College Eagles who also sit with a 4-1 record overall and their only loss came in their last game against the Clemson Tigers. The defense gave up only 19 points, but the offense could only score 13 points, and that led to the defeat. Boston College is averaging 35.6 points while the defense is giving up 16.8 points per game. Boston College likes to run and are averaging 189.8 yards per game on the ground. Pat Garwo III is the star on the ground rushing for 469 yards and five touchdowns.

NC State is 0-6 against the spread in their last six games as a road favorite. Boston College is 6-1 against the spread in their last seven home games. The under is 5-1 in the last six meetings. The road team is 4-1-1 against the spread in the last six meetings. 

NC State isn’t a great team on the road when they are the favorite, and I don’t think that is going to change in this game. Boston College is a strong defensive team, and points are going to be hard to come by for NC State. Boston College is going to cover the spread, and I will also throw a few dollars on Boston College to win on the money line.
