NOTRE DAME (-7.5) 33 Boston College 24

Over/Under Total: 55.0
12:30 PM Pacific Time Saturday, Oct-24

The Eagles' solid defense has been susceptible to good quarterbacks, giving up 10.1 yards per pass play to Wake Forest, 7.7 yppp to Florida State and 11.5 yppp to Virginia Tech.

Notre Dame certainly qualifies as a good passing team. The Irish won't be able to run against a BC defense allowing just 3.8 yards per rushing play, but Jimmy Clausen should have a good game.

My math favors gives Notre Dame a 56% chance of covering at -7 1/2 points but Boston College does apply to a solid 91-35-1 ATS statistical indicator. I'll still lean with the Irish.
