Boston College +4.5
NC State -4.5

This is a pretty big ACC matchup. Both teams are considered to be in the top half of the ACC conference.

Boston College was once ranked #22 in the land this year but since their one and only loss to Purdue, has dropped out of the top 25. Only to be replaced by NC State, who is ranked #22

Here are some quick win/loss records for SU and ATS:

Boston College:
Team record: 4-1 SU,3-2 ATS
Boston College is 11-3-1 ATS in its last 15 games
Boston College is 4-1 SU in its last 5 games
Boston College is 6-2 ATS in its last 8 games on the road

NC State:
Team record: 4-0 SU,3-1 ATS
Current Streak: won 4 straight games.
North Carolina State is 4-1 ATS in its last 5 games
North Carolina State is 5-0 SU in its last 5 games
North Carolina State is 4-2 ATS in its last 6 games at home

Boston College is 5-2 SU in its last 7 games on the road

North Carolina State is 4-2 ATS in its last 6 games when playing at home against Boston College

My take is this: Yes NC State is ranked and undefeated. But who have they played? Virginia? Marshall? I'm not impressed. Boston College lost to a Purdue team that has flashes of offensive brilliance that could score a ton of points on any given day against any team. And BC beat a pretty good Temple team and a pretty good Wake Forest team, at Wake.

Boston College getting the 4.5 points seems like the smart play here and good for a nickel or a dime bet.
