College Football Betting Preview
Boston College (6-3) at Florida State (7-2)
Saturday, 8:00 pm Eastern – ABC
SBG Global Opening Line: Florida State – 7 , Total 46.5
Florida State will look to stay atop the ACC standings as they host Boston College on Saturday. The Seminoles have been winning because of their strong running attack that is averaging 205.2 yards per game. “It’s amazed me that we’ve been able to run the numbers we have,” coach Bobby Bowden said. “It’s amazed me. But I sure hope we keep it up because it’s probably a very big key on that offense, no doubt about it.” Last week the Seminoles rushed for 266 yards in a 41-27 win over Clemson. Jermaine Thomas led the Seminoles with 94 yards on 11 carries while Antone Smith rushed for 57 yards and two touchdowns. Florida State will get a real test on Saturday against a Boston College defense that is only allowing 101.8 yards per game on the ground. SBG Global reports that early College Football betting has the public taking Florida State at Home.
Boston College is coming off a 17-0 win over Notre Dame last week. The defense led the way again for the Eagles as they have all year. The defense has 18 interceptions this season. “We come out there every time and our goal is to get a touchdown and a lot of defenses don’t have that as their goal,” linebacker Mark Herzlich said. “Their goal is to get the ball back to the offense. We take it one step further.”
Florida State is 4-2 all-time against Boston College including 2-1 at home. Last season the Seminoles won 27-17 at Boston College. “We have a lot of momentum going,” Florida State defensive end Everette Brown said. “We had a great week last week against Clemson, bouncing back (from) the loss (to) Georgia Tech. We’re going to carry that momentum right into Boston College because now everything counts. It’s going to be very important that we come out and play our best game.”
