Boston College, off to a 3-0 start in the ACC, gets to relax with non-conference foes the next few weeks. The Eagles will win this one, no doubt, but Army covers the 4-TD spread.
The Boston College Eagles made us very happy last week as they cashed our first Five Star Best Bet of the season, and they made us a nice chunk of change on the moneyline as well. This club sits a perfect 3-0 SU and ATS in ACC play, and now gets the next three weeks to tinker with its depth and give some of the young guys some playing time.
[articleBanner]who2beton[/articleBanner]Army put forth a decent effort last week, and was able to come within the 20-point spread at Wake Forest. With the new coaching staff in place, it’s going to take this team awhile before its fully comfortable with all the new schemes on both sides of the ball. That being said, they experienced success in the passing game last week, and even improved upon their rushing numbers.
With BC taking it easy, especially in this game, I foresee the Cadets continuing their forward progression. The Eagles have absolutely no desire to rub Army’s face in a brutal defeat, and head coach Jeff Jagodzinski won’t allow it to happen. I’m more than happy with almost four touchdowns in my back pocket, and you should be too.
Boston College wins straight up to improve its mark to 24-3 vs. Army since 1970, but the Cadets cover and look forward to next week's winnable game at home vs. Temple.
Free Pick: Army +27½ (-110)
