Clemson is definitely a good team but there has to be some blood in the water with the way they have been playing and perhaps one of these two teams could steal the division, kind of unthinkable.
The Wolfpack are still undefeated and have one of the best quarterbacks in the nation. Boston College is a total opposite, the less they put the ball in the air the better their chances are. This is an underrated game I think.
Boston College Eagles
Boston College is 4-1 coming into this road test. A couple of weeks ago they had a stumble against Purdue but last week they beat a Temple team that is underrated but was playing without their starting quarterbacks. The defense should have been better in the win I think.
AJ Dillon is a tough running back to stop and last week he had his third game over 140 yards on the season. He is a load but he wasn’t the only back to have a great day against the Owls. Ben Glines also rushed for 120 yards and he is actually listed as a receiver.
One of the staples for Boston College of late has been a punishing defense that has at least one edge rusher that puts fear in the quarterback. Defensive end Wyatt Ray has 5.5 sacks but the overall defensive numbers have not been good and they will have to be strong on that side this week. .
NC State Wolfpack
The Wolfpack have won all four of their games and covered three straight. The schedule is about to stiffen though with super physical Boston College at home this week and then a visit to seemingly vulnerable Clemson on deck. The heat will be on if they can get through this one and be undefeated to take on the Tigers.
It is hard to figure out why Ryan Finley doesn’t have a greater profile. Maybe it is being at NC State or maybe because he started his career at Boise State way back when. He is off to a great start putting up numbers better than his first two seasons in Raleigh. If he keeps it up he could be the top pick in the NFL Draft. .
NC State’s defense has not been great this season, which was to expected after NFL defections. The good thing is that they have been better against the run than the pass. If they can keep Dillon and Co. from dominating they should be more than able to put up enough points to win, and cover at home.

Free Week 6 NCAA Football Pick
Boston College is always a fun underdog because of the way their physical play and strong defense can grind away at opponents. Unfortunately the defense is just not on point this season.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: NC State -4.5
The way I see this one is that BC is going to get its yards and might even win the time of possession battle but unless they score touchdowns they are going to struggle to keep up with the Wolfpack.
I really like this number all the way up to -6.5 and expect it to move one way or the other. Per the note above I think BC gets attention when they are in underdog but they are not going to be able to cash for us in this spot.
