Boston College vs. Wake Forest: Eagles Open As 2-3 Point Favorites

It's ACC time!

NCAA Football: Boston College at Northern Illinois Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports

Vegas has spoken and according to what gambling site you follow Boston College is a 2-3 point favorite going into Saturday’s matchup against the Wake Forest Demon Deacons.

The last two seasons were split between BC and Wake. In 2015, Wake snuck out a brutal 3-0 win, famous for Addazio’s bumbling of the clock on the goal line. However the Eagles got their revenge last season, winning 17-14 on the road. Both teams are pretty evenly matched this year, which would reflect the close spread.

Our frienemies Blogger So Dear went even further in depth to find some more statistical spreads on Saturday’s game.

The line has been bet down to a consensus 1.5 according to VegasInsider, which is not surprising given the advanced numbers thus far. Sagarin has Wake Forest as a 2.5 point favorite (this accounts for home/road game).

The Football Study Hall projections will be out tomorrow, which is my "go-to" site for in-depth statistical lines, but the pre-season line had Wake Forest -2.4 (56%), which is more in line with Sagarin.

The over/under on this game is 43, which if I were a betting man, I’d throw my life savings on the under.
