College Football Betting - 2007 Boston College Golden Eagles Preview

The Boston College Eagles tied for second in the ACC Atlantic last year and beat Navy 25-24 in the Meineke Car Care Bowl but did not cover for college football betting fans

The Eagles have been on a bowl win streak but under Coach Tom O’Brien they didn’t always cover the college football betting pointspread. They begin the 2007 season with a new coach in Jeff Jagodzinski as Tom O’Brien left for N.C. State. College football betting players should know that the team returns 18 starters from last season and is a solid ACC football betting favorite in 2007. New Head Coach Jeff Jagodzinski is expected to get a little more out of the offense this season and with quarterback Matt Ryan leading the way that should not be a problem. NCAA College football betting fans know that Ryan battled through much of last season with a broken foot but still threw for 245 yards per game and 15 touchdowns on the season and excited college football betting players. Not having Tony Gonzalez to pass to will make things more difficult for Ryan and for college football betting fans taking the Eagles. Gonzalez, a big play receiver, caught 43 passes for 491 yards and five touchdowns last year. College football betting fans know that Kevin Challenger put up similar numbers in 2006 and will be joined by Brandon Robinson, Rich Gunnell and Clarence Megwa as the main receiving threats.

College football betting players should know that L.V. Whitworth and Andre Callender combined to rush for over 1,400 yards last season. They will be running behind a tough, experienced offensive line. Good news for college football betting players that bet B.C. is that the defensive line returns entirely intact led by tackle B.J. Raji and end Nick Larkin. B.C. returns all three starting linebackers as well. Jolonn Dunbar led the team in tackles and will make the big hit and the great play for football betting players. College football betting players know that the lone losses on defense are strong safety Ryan Glasper and cornerback Larry Anam. Paul Anderson has starting experience at the strong safety position and is expected to easily take over the job from Glasper. The returning defensive backs, DeJuan Tribble and Jamie Silva, are quality players who will make the secondary one of the best in the ACC and a football betting factor to consider. Tribble earned All-ACC second-team honors as a corner last year.

Looking at the schedule for 2007 college football betting players we see that B.C. has Wake Forest, Notre Dame, Florida State and Miami on the slate. College football betting players know that Georgia Tech and Virginia Tech will both be tough to beat. The good news for college football betting players is that Ryan is a winner at QB and O’Brien is gone. As long as O’Brien was at B.C. the team could not take another step forward straight up or against the football betting pointspread. Now that he is gone they can reach for a major bowl game and more college football betting covers in 2007.
