The Boston College Eagles and NC State Wolfpack face off on Saturday in a college football showdown at Carter-Finley. When these two teams faced off in 2021 it was NC State that secured the 33-7.
Boston College comes into this game with a 2-7 record overall and they are coming off another loss in the last game. Boston College scored 31 points in the last game against Duke, but they gave up 38 points. Under center for Boston College was Emmett Morehead and he completed 27 of his 45 passes for 330 yards, four touchdowns, and zero interceptions. Boston College is averaging 18.8 points while their defense is giving up 29.8 points per game. The offense is ranked 119th. This has been one of the more disappointing teams in college football and if they want a chance in this game the defense is going to need to step up in a big way.
On the other side of this matchup is NC State who sits with a 7-2 record overall and they have gone 3-6 against the spread. NC State’s last game against Wake Forest, and the offense scored 30 points which led to the nine-point victory. Quarterback MJ Morris completed 18 of his 28 passes for 210 yards, three touchdowns, and zero interceptions. Jordan Houston rushed 12 times for 53 yards. NC State is averaging 27.1 points while their defense is giving up 17.8 points per game. The Wolfpack’s defense is the strength, and they need to lockdown in this game.
The Eagles are 2-9 in their last against the spread in their 11 games overall. NC State is 1-5 against the spread in their last six games. The road team is 5-1-1 against the spread in their last seven meetings.
Morris looked really good in his last game, and I expect he’s going to have another big game here. Boston College is also going to really struggle to score here, and that is going to be the difference as NC State is going to have no issue getting the job done. Back NC State against the spread. NC State will win by three touchdowns.
