Stats to Consider

All four of those games went under the total.
Team vs. Team
Account of four payouts in five games against Clemson does Boston College offer potentially strong value. BC and Clemson have split their last four games vs. the line at Alumni Stadium. Two of the last three in this series at BC went over the total.
Matchup to Watch
Certainly, this is a big number for Clemson against a good opponent. While Boston College is solid Clemson is way out of their league. On the whole the Tigers should wear down BC with their elite depth. In comparison the Eagles lack the Betting on NCAA Football firepower to last four quarters.
