It has been a struggle for both teams this year. Central Michigan is coming off two losses in a row and looking to rebound on the road against Boston College.
The Eagles were competitive against Clemson for three quarters before it all became undone. Boston College will be seeking their second victory of the year.
Central Michigan Chippewas
Central Michigan got off to a solid enough starting in defeating Rhode Island and Kansas, but they’ve followed up those wins with two straight losses.
In those two losses Central Michigan has averaged 15.5 points per game and have allowed 36 points per game.
Defensively, Central Michigan have allowed 458 yards per game and while they’ve gained 454 yards per game, their average has been lower than that in their losses.
Boston College Eagles
2017 hasn’t been good to the Boston College Eagles. They won their opener in a nail-biter 23-20 over Northern Illinois, but they’ve lost three straight.
However, they’ve haven’t been to cupcakes. They’ve lost to the undefeated Wake Forest Demon Deacons, Notre Dame Fighting Irish, and Clemson Tigers. Not exactly a walk in the park.
For Boston College it won’t get any easier either. After Central Michigan, they play Virginia Tech, Louisville, Virginia, Florida State, and NC State. Bowl eligibility is basically impossible for the Eagles.
If that weren’t bad enough, Boston College isn’t exactly healthy coming into a must-win game against Central Michigan.
Starting wide receiver Charlie Callinan is gone for awhile, starting offensive lineman Aaron Monteiro is questionable.
Starting linebacker Max Richardson is questionable with a knee injury, and starting quarterback Anthony Brown left the game against Clemson and he’s questionable for this Saturday’s game, as well.

I like Central Michigan to cover the spread in this one. Both teams are very shaky, but I think this will be a one possession game either way.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Central Michigan +8.5
I kind of like the value in Central Michigan straight up in the this one. Boston College is banged up and it wouldn’t be the most shocking or biggest upset in the world. I’d keep an eye on this one.
If Anthony Brown is out I’d take Central Michigan straight up be sure to follow the injury report as it gets closer to game time.
