Spread Drops in Boston College vs. Clemson Game

A.J. Black

Boston College heads to Death Valley on Saturday to face off with the Clemson, the number one team in college football. Last night it was announced that Trevor Lawrence would be missing the game due to COVID-19. Because of the news, the spread has dropped from Clemson -32.5 to -23.5.

Clemson is undefeated and has rolled in every game they have played this season. They are coming off a win against Syracuse that was a lot closer for most of the game than the actual score shows. The Orange hung around, and were only a score away from tying the game late in the third quarter. However a series of turnovers doomed Syracuse and Clemson made them pay easily winning the game 47-21. However, it is worth noting that the Tigers were not close to covering the spread which was -44.5 on most wires. 

Boston College also had a big win on Saturday, trouncing Georgia Tech 48-27 in Chestnut Hill. The Eagles ran the ball for 264 yards, and forced two turnovers in the decisive win. Against the spread this year the Eagles are 4-2. They have covered against Duke, Pitt, UNC and Georgia Tech but have failed to do so against Texas State and Virginia Tech. Last year against Clemson, the Eagles were thirty five point underdogs, and lost the game 59-7.

Below are some other spreads from around the ACC:

Wake Forest (-10.5) at Syracuse

Notre Dame (-19) at Georgia Tech

Virginia Tech (-3) at Louisville

Charlotte at Duke (-10.5)

UNC (-7) at UVA

I thought it was unfair that BC had to play Clemson at Death Valley two years in a row but at least they'll have one hand tied behind their back this year. I still think Clemson will win by at least 20, they still have a top notch defense. It's like fighting Jon Jones in the street with one of his arms tied behind his back, he's still going to crush you but at least you might make it a little interesting.

Now we have a chance though their new 5 star qb I'm sure is all world, hopefully we can catch him off guard and apply pressure early. He looks like Cam newton running in highlights so that's not good for our LB crew.

It is within the realm of ‘I didn’t see that coming’ possibilities where BC beats Clemson in a thriller with late game heroics much in the same way Clemson lost in the past to Pitt (2016) and Syracuse (2017).

I was at the game at Clemson last year and let me tell you it wasn’t as close as 59-7 suggests

Good teams win, great teams cover bet the house on BC! No one beats us by 40 two years in a row!

Least surprising headline I've seen in awhile! 32 seems like a reasonable line, but I like BC to keep it closer than expected.
