Pittsburgh vs. Boston College,

Score: 30 - 20
Point Spread: +5/-110 Boston College
The Pitt Panthers looked pretty good in Week 1, defeating a upcake Delaware by a score of 62-0. Of course we can't get too excited about a blowout win against a small school. The Panthers face a much tougher test this week, taking on the Boston College Eagles on the road. The BC defense is tough and I expect Pitt to have trouble moving the ball in this one.
Tyler Murphy BC's Senior QB comes over from the Florida Gators, and he's wasted no time making an impact. Murphy completed 70% of his passes for 174 yards and a TD, while picking up another 118 yards and a TD on the ground. He'll give the Eagles a dual threat weapon, and Pittsburgh should have it's hands full trying to contain him.
Boston College ran the ball 61 times for 338 yards in their opener, dominating time of possession holding the ball for 42 minutes.
Getting the Eagles as a home dog of more than three points is excellent value, especially when you consider that Pitt was 1-4 ATS on the road last year.
I'll take the home team getting 5 points on Friday night.
