Boston College is fresh off a bye week, as it looks to bounce back from a 24-14 setback to the Clemson Tigers as 24-point road underdogs on Oct. 12, while going UNDER the betting total of 64.  The Eagles haven’t met the Tar Heels since 2009, as they prepare to play their third road game of the 2013 campaign, which is important to consider when making your college football predictions.  A veteran offensive line that has combined for 97 career starts paves the way for senior running back and Doak Walker Award candidate Andre Williams.  Boston College is 1-5 SU and 2-4 ATS as underdogs of 3.5 to 10 points the last two-plus seasons.

The Eagles are led by senior quarterback Chase Rettig, who has completed 606-of-1,109 career passing attempts for 7,351 yards and 45 touchdowns.  Out of 123 teams, Boston College checks in 10th among FBS institutions in red-zone offense through six games in 2013.  It’s important to point out that the program has turned the ball over just six times through five games.

North Carolina has played the nation’s fourth-most difficult schedule to date, as it attempts to snap a four-game losing streak, which includes a 27-23 setback to the Miami Hurricanes as 9.5-point home underdogs last Thursday.  The Tar Heels need a big game from quarterback Bryn Renner, who ranks second in the ACC and 16th in the country in averaging 282.8 passing yards per game.  He ranks first in the league in completions per game at 23.8.  North Carolina is 3-1 SU and 2-2 ATS as a home favorites of 7.5 to 10 points since 2011.

The Tar Heels have a major offensive weapon in tight end Eric Ebron, who leads the team with 31 catches for 532 yards.  He hauled in a career-high eight catches for a career-high 199 yards and his third touchdown of the season last week.  North Carolina is 13-4 at Kenan Stadium since 2011, with the losses coming against Georgia Tech (2012), East Carolina (2013) and Miami (2013).

Sports bettors will likely back the Eagles due to their 4-1 ATS mark in their last five ACC games.
