The Wynn Las Vegas has published early lines for college football's week 5, installing Boston College as a 10 point home underdog against Clemson. Last year, Boston College was a 21 point road underdog at Clemson, losing 36-14.

Here are the lines from all seven ACC meetings between the Eagles and Tigers.

2011: Clemson 36, Boston College 14 (Clemson -21)
2010: Boston College 16, Clemson 10 (BC +7)
2009: Clemson 25, Boston College 7 (Clemson -9)
2008: Clemson 27, Boston College 21 (Clemson +2.5)
2007: Boston College 20, Clemson 17 (BC +9)
2006: Boston College 34, Clemson 33 (BC +1)
2005: Boston College 16, Clemson 13 (BC +3)

Clemson has been favored in six of the seven meetings in the ACC series and is 3-4 ATS over that span. After winning the first three games in the ACC series -- all as an underdog -- BC has failed to cover in three of the last four meetings.

Other ACC lines of note: Miami is a 3 point favorite at home vs. N.C. State. Duke (Duke!) is a 3.5 point favorite on the road against Wake Forest (and one of those two teams will be 4-1 next Sunday!).

In non-conference play, Florida State is a 16 point favorite at home vs. USF while Virginia Tech is a 6.5 point favorite vs. Cincinnati in Landover, Maryland. Virginia is a 3 point home underdog to Louisiana Tech. North Carolina is a 23 point home favorite over winless Idaho (yawn) and Georgia Tech a 26 point favorite against Middle Tennessee State (double yawn).

Maryland has a bye this week.
