Pittsburgh vs. Boston College, 09/05/2014 19:00 EDT, Score: 30 - 20

Point Spread: +5/-110 Boston College

Sportsbook: Bovada

Result: Loss

Boston College +5

Pitt is coming off a 62-0 destruction of lowly Delaware and that allows us to grab the Golden Eagles at a favorable price here. The Panthers outgained Delaware 501-57 with an insane 409-26 edge in rushing yards, but this game is absolutely meaningless in terms of providing any insight into Friday's outcome.

On the other hand, we view Boston College's 30-7 beatdown of UMass as an impressive victory. The Golden Eagles were 17-point favorites in the contest, but they're notorious for laying eggs on the road, and they did the exact opposite. BC outgained UMass by over 300 total yards, and held the ball for a whopping 42 minutes. It's almost important to note that they held the Minutemen to a measly 2.5 yards per carry.

If the Eagles can take care of business on the road, we sure as hell like their chances at home where they've covered their last five home games by a combined 50.5 points. Pittsburgh is also in a very unfavorable spot, having given up less than 20 points in their last game. They're 0-4 in their last 4 games after allowing less than 20 in a game.

The Eagles are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 conference games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games. The Panthers are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games following an ATS win.

Take Boston College.

Good Luck, Razor Ray
