Boston College vs UNLV prediction

Boston College has surprised at times this season, and it does have 7 road wins, so I wouldn't write off the Eagles completely. However, this will be Boston College's fourth straight road game and at some point the constant travel is going to take its toll. Also, UNLV is 11-5 SU at home and the Rebels are 20-10 ATS on the season. UNLV has covered 7 of its last 8 games. I'd need more points to step in front of UNLV in this spot. I'll lay the reasonable number with the home team.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
