The Wynn Las Vegas has installed Boston College as a 27 point road underdog at Florida State this weekend. The Eagles are getting the most points on a college football gambling line since Boston College got 27 points for a November 1997 game at Syracuse. You have to go back to 1990 to find a game where BC was a bigger underdog -- November 1990 vs. Miami where the Eagles got 35 points.
Florida State (5-1) is coming off a 17-16 loss at N.C. State. Both BC and Florida State are just 1-4-0 against the spread this season, though Florida State is a perfect 4-0 at home and Boston College an imperfect 0-2 on the road. The Eagles have covered three of the last four spreads against the Seminoles.
Here are the lines from the last seven matchups in the ACC series:
2011: Florida State 38, Boston College 7 (FSU -14.5)
2010: Florida State 24, Boston College 19 (BC +21.5)
2009: Boston College 28, Florida State 21 (BC +3.5)
2008: Boston College 27, Florida State 17 (BC +7)
2007: Florida State 27, Boston College 17 (FSU +6.5)
2006: Boston College 24, Florida State 19 (BC +7)
2005: Florida State 28, Boston College 17 (FSU -1)
