Boston College football opens the season as a 1 point favorite at home against Miami. The early VI consensus pegged the Hurricanes as a 2.5 point favorite on the road, but the lines have bounced between BC-1 and Miami -1, depending on your Vegas casino of choice.

For last season's regular season finale against Miami, the Eagles opened as a 14.5 point road underdog. Boston College held on to win 24-17, sending the seniors out with a victory. The BC victory snapped a four game streak of the Hurricanes covering the spread against the Eagles. Miami is 8-2 in their last 10 against Boston College, but has lost the last two for the first back-to-back losses in the all-time series. Against the spread, Miami is 6-4 in the last 10.

Here are the lines from the last 10 Eagles-Hurricanes meetings.

2011: Boston College 24, Miami 17 (BC +14.5)
2007: Boston College 28, Miami 14 (Miami +14.5)
