Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets vs Boston College Eagles (BC -3, O/U 54.5)
Boston College will play host to Georgia Tech on Saturday as both teams look to improve to 3-2 in ACC play.
The Yellow Jackets enter following an absolute beatdown at the hands of Clemson, hoping to right the ship and avoid losing four of their last five. The Eagles limp into this contest as well following a 40-16 loss to Virginia Tech, needing to secure a victory before next week’s matchup with the seemingly immovable force that is Clemson. BC currently sits as a 3-point favorite over the visiting Yellow Jackets, but our model thinks that number may be a bit short.
Our model is expecting the Eagles to win by closer to a touchdown, projecting a final score of 31.4-24.3 in favor of Boston College. With a projected 7.1-point victory and the spread sitting at 3 points, we have a sizable edge on Jeff Hafley’s squad. Our model suggests an $81 wager on BOSTON COLLEGE -3 for an average $100 bettor.
