Dr. Bob Previews WAKE FOREST (+1.5) @ BOSTON COLLEGE

Robert StollCorrespondent ISeptember 25, 2009

Wake Forest 20 BOSTON COLLEGE (-1.5) 16

Over/Under Total: 41.0
11:00 AM Pacific Time Saturday, Sep-26

Boston College still hasn't found a capable quarterback, with Justin Tuggle and Dave Shinskie both struggling, and the Eagles have averaged just 4.9 yards per play against a schedule of teams that would combine to allow 6.0 yppl to an average team.

Wake Forest hasn't been great defensively (5.4 yppl allowed to teams that would combine to average 5.4 yppl), but they're good enough to keep the Eagles in check. Boston College is still capable of winning this game at home thanks to a very strong defense that has yielded just 2.9 yppl in 3 games, including allowing just 3.4 yppl to a better than average Clemson attack last week.

Wake has a better than average offense with Riley Skinner looking like he may have his best season yet as a 4 year starter. Skinner has averaged 7.4 yards per pass play and the Demon Deacons rate at 0.4 yppl better than average offensively so far.

The defenses have the advantage in this game and my ratings favor Wake by 2 points while the Demon Deacons apply to a solid 30-7 ATS game 4 situation.
