The Wake Forest Demon Deacons and Boston College Eagles face off on Saturday in an ACC college football showdown at BC Alumni Stadium. When these two teams last faced off in 2019, Wake Forest won 27-24.
Wake Forest comes into this game with a 9-2 record overall and they have gone 5-6 against the spread. Even though Wake Forest has had a strong season, they are coming off a disappointing loss. The Demon Deacons gave up 48 points to Clemson, and the offense could only manage 27 points. Wake Forest is averaging 43.1 points while their defense is giving up 30.8 points per game. Under center for Wake Forest is Sam Hartman who has thrown for 3,475 yards, 31 touchdowns, and nine interceptions. Christian Beal-Smith has also found success rushing for 533 yards and seven touchdowns.
On the other side of this matchup is the Boston College Eagles who sit with a 6-5 record and they have gone 6-5 against the spread. Coming into this game, Boston College has won two of their last three games with the loss coming in their last game. The Eagles scored 13 points in the 4th quarter against Florida State but it wasn’t enough as they were defeated by three points. Boston College is averaging 26 points while their defense is giving up 20.45 points per game Under center for Boston College is Phil Jurkovec who has thrown for 895 yards, six touchdowns and two interceptions.
Boston College is 4-1 against the spread in their last five games overall. The over is 6-0 in Wake Forest’s last six games in November. The under is 5-0 in Boston College’s last five games on field turf. The over is 5-0 in Wake Forest’s last five games following a straight up win.
Wake Forest can score, and they don’t play a whole lot of defense. I expect Wake Forest is going to run up the score, Boston College will also find plenty of success scoring, and this game is going to be a shootout. Back the over to cash. It’s also a lean with Wake Forest to cover the spread.
