The Cardinals are in real trouble and now they are taking on a team they couldn’t beat last year, even when they had all everything Lamar Jackson Bobby Petrino is on the hot seat and another loss looks probable.
The Eagles had a chance to really make some noise last week but came up short against NC State. They were without Big Dog A.J. Dillon and might be again this weekend.
They should win either way and might have been helped by being a little more comfortable without him now.
Most saw the ceiling of this team as being 6-6 or 7-5 with a bowl game at the end. Now that looks like a very unlikely scenario and the way things are going their head coach might not even last the season. They are really trending poorly right now.
Hitting the road to take on one of the most physical teams in the country hardly seems like a recipe for sudden success either. The assumption that offensive guru Bobby Petrino could make this group work has been way off.
Jawan Pass might wind up being a player but right now there isn’t a ton to like.
When I look at their schedule I see only one really good chance at a victory, and this ain’t it. If that comes to fruition those looking for Petrino’s head just might get their wish. Since joining the ACC they are 2-2 ATS against the Eagles. Both ATS wins came when they were the visitors. .
Boston College Eagles
BC struggled last week but closed strong to cover against NC State. Had they been fully healthy it might have been a different story but every team has one of those. This is a good matchup for the Eagles though even if they are still short handed.
The Eagles know their identity, which is a strong running game and punishing defense. It works most of the time but they need to get more from quarterback Anthony Brown.
His overall numbers might look good but that is because of his production in 2 out of their 6 games. To win you need a QB who is more consistent than that.
I like this spot for a win but that spread makes me a little nervous. Battering ram AJ Dillon is questionable and without him the offense may not be all that special. Having to finish the game up two touchdown to cash is more than I am really comfortable with right now.
They did not cover in their other home game against real competition.

This line definitely looks like one to tease, it is just a little rich as is…though Boston College should get the win.

Look for BC to establish themselves early and hold the lead for most of the game but a couple of drives late that fizzle will lead to a backdoor cover.
Louisville has just about nothing going for them right now so it is no surprise that the coach is on the hot seat. Still they can keep this one close enough. Just.
