Another coach taking a leave of absence for health reasons is Boston College fi rst-year offensive coordinator Kevin Rogers. Our college football betting database tells us that the Eagles’ offense has been on leave all season (13 PPG versus FBS foes) so we’re honestly not sure that Mr. Rogers will be all that missed in the Chestnut Hill neighborhood.
Don’t be fooled by last week’s 45-point outburst against Division 1-AA UMass – the Minutemeneked out single-digit wins over Holy Cross and Rhode Island prior to last week’s visit to Alumni Stadium.
And while we’re not willing to back the feeble Eagles and their 0-3 SU and ATS record against Division 1-A competition this season, there’s just no value in making a pledge to the Demons in this pick ‘em affair, as they arrive with an 0-4 ATS series record since 2007 (as well as a dog role in all four of their previous visits).
Wake’s 1-5 ATS mark with revenge versus .400 or less opposition also keeps us in bed for this 12:30 kickoff. Like AT&T, we’ll let you make the call in this snooze-fest.
