Tigers vs. Eagles Matchup Info
Since the 2005 season, these NCAAF teams have met annually, and the Clemson Tigers have dominated this matchup. They have won 11 consecutive games against Boston College, and Clemson packed up a 19-13 home victory last season.
Let’s dive into the Clemson vs. Boston College betting picks into this game to determine where we should be betting in this game.
This Clemson offense goes as well as junior quarterback DJ Uiagalelei has been, as he has a 65.4 completion percentage for 1,242 yards with 11 touchdown passes and an interception.
He has thrown eight touchdowns without an interception in his last three games. It’s a big reason why they are averaging 41 points on 437.6 points per game.
This defense has been doing extremely well as they are giving up 21.4 points per game while holding the opposing team to just 70.2 rushing yards per game, which is tied for second in the nation in that department.
The Clemson betting odds change with their injury report, as they are relatively healthy heading into this matchup. Their key players are not going into this game with any injury designation as of this writing.

Clemson Tigers vs. Boston College Eagles Odds
The Clemson vs. Boston College betting picks has shown the ability to get us some money. Looking at the numbers for the moneyline, total, and spread, there is a huge chance to be successful in our bankroll.
Clemson Tigers vs. Boston College Eagles Betting Picks
The moneyline has been tough to picture anything but the Clemson Tigers picking up a win here. As we discussed earlier, the Tigers have won the previous 11 games against the Eagles.
Also, Clemson is undefeated entering this game, and Boston College is under .500, so there should not be that much of a contest in that regard.
The total is sitting at 48.5 points and has decreased two full points since the line opened. Neither team has done well as the under has hit in five of the previous seven Tigers road games as well as in four of the last five Eagles home games.
These defenses have shown the ability to stop opposing offenses, as we highlighted earlier. Clemson stops the run against them so go with under 48.5 points in this game as well.
The spread is currently sitting at 20 points, favoring the road team in this game, and the college football standings should show you how great this should be as Clemson is undefeated and Boston College is brutal right now.
Sophomore running back Will Shipley should dominate on the ground throughout this game and play extremely well to open up the passing game.
I do not see Boston College Eagles having the ability to stop a high-powered offense like Clemson so go with the Clemson Tigers to win by three full touchdowns in this game.
Clemson Tigers vs. Boston College Eagles Score Prediction
In their last two games against one another, the Tigers have won by a single possession, but I really like this offense at this point.
This game feels like it will end up being 37-11, with the Clemson Tigers walking out of Alumni Stadium victorious.
NCAAF Pick: Clemson -21 (-110)
