The Boston College Eagles look to steal a win on the road when they face the Syracuse Orange on Saturday in this ACC matchup. The Eagles are looking for their first conference win of the year. The eagles won this match up last year.
Syracuse comes into this one red hot on offense. Their run game is 8th best in the nation and Quarterback Garrett Shrader has looked decent through the air completing 52.5% of his passes for 1054 yards and seven touchdowns. His running ability is what really makes this team dangerous as he has rushed for almost 600 yards and 12 Tds. This Syracuse team is getting it done against the spread as well as they are 4-0 and
6-1 ATS in the last seven against a team with a winning record.
Boston College has been keeping games tight with their defense allowing less than 21 points per contest. Their struggles have been on the offensive side of the ball this year. Against higher power ACC offenses, BC has struggled to keep up. Quarterback Dennis Grosel, has 7 interceptions on the year and for a team that struggles to keep the offense on the field this is a very bad sign. Boston College is 2-5 ATS in the last seven ACC games and 1-4 ATS in the last five as the underdog.
This is a bad spot for BC. The spread for this game has dropped but that doesn’t scare me as this Syracuse team looks ready to turn a corner, and I think that starts with covering against BC.
