Miami vs Boston College Prediction Breakdown
Both of these teams come into this matchup struggling in recent games, but will have the chance to finish the regular season with a win here. Boston College hasn’t been great on offense this year and they have scored 16, 22, 17, and 21 points in their last four games. Miami has lost three games in a row, but their last two have been against Louisville and Florida State, both of which have been by seven points. Miami was only a couple of plays away from winning both of those games, but they couldn’t make it happen. I think the Hurricanes are the better team in this matchup and I don’t trust Boston College’s offense at all. At the same time, Miami hasn’t won by 10 points in their last seven games. I am going to take Boston College at home with the points. I think Miami gets the win, but BC does enough to keep it close.
