ACC foes clash on Thursday night when the Boston College Eagles clash with the Wake Forest Demon Deacons.
Both teams have played some inspiring football early on here, as we see a pair of 2-0 teams go at it.
Boston College has a lot of upside here in 2018.
This team is not only built to compete, but they certainly have a chance to open some eyes in conference play.
Offensively, the Eagles are going to continue to rely on AJ Dillon. The star RB rumbled for 149 yards and 3 touchdowns in less than one full quarter before being pulled from the game. The Eagles took it to Holy Cross, rightfully so, as a lot of their starters got some time to rest.
One thing to watch here for the Eagles is going to be their special teams. Two blocked punts last week resulted in both touchdowns given up to Holy Cross, as they simply haven’t been good there.
The defense continues to live up to their end of the bargain but will have their hands full here on Thursday with their best competition thus far.
Boston College is 6-0-1 ATS in their last 7 ACC games.
Wake Forest Demon Deacons
Wake Forest has had their share of success here early on.
While they are 2-0, bettors beware they are 0-2 ATS. It started in Week 1 where they failed to cover the 7 point spread after Tulane took them into overtime. Last week, Wake Forest put up a 51 spot on Towson but failed to cover the big number.
Wake Forest is a team that will look to establish the ground game, and wear teams out.
They racked up 340 yards on the ground in last weeks win, as controlling the tempo and clock is something they look to do from the outset.
One thing to watch for here is this defense as they haven’t looked sharp just yet. Wake Forest ranks 117th in the nation against the pass through the first two games of 2018.
This is a spot where Boston College could look to decoy Dillion in the backfield and take some shots down field. With that in mind, Wake could be in for a long evening as they are extremely vulnerable over the top.
Wake Forest took down Boston College last season 34-10 and are 8-4-1 ATS it’s last 13 home games where they are underdogs.
