Boston College Eagles vs. Duke Blue Devils NCAA Football Betting Preview

Steve Addazio became an exhausted volcano as Boston College head coach.  To illustrate he was 44-44 in seven seasons.  With six minor bowl appearances.  Addazio wasn’t bad but he failed to move the meter.  Boston is the epitome of a pro sports town.  Meaning Boston College must emerge as a serious College football betting contender.  Otherwise, the Eagles are lost in the shuffle.  Duke has bowled in six of their last eight seasons.  But missed out last year.  In a similar way do they battle for attention.  Duke is a top tier basketball school.  Mediocre football doesn’t sell there.

Boston College Eagles at Duke Blue Devils CashBet Wagering Analysis

Boston College is an anonymous program that is playing its first game.  Duke got national attention last week at Notre Dame.  Although the Blue Devils lost, they did cover the online sportsbook number.  Squares know little about these teams.  Sharps like them both on occasion.  However, in this matchup handicappers can be challenged.  Boston College and Duke both aspire to merely make a lower-tier bowl.  To be exact there is no history of these programs being national powers.  Name brand status lacks for both.  As does public cache.  Subsequently, live betting may offer enhanced appeal.

Eagles Hope to Take Flight in New Era

Namely, Jeff Hafley arrives from Ohio State to lead Boston College.  Hafley was hired based on the Betting on college football dominance of that program.  At Ohio State, he was a co-defensive coordinator.  BC liked Hafley for his youth and ties to a national powerhouse.  In fact, at the introductory press conference that was the main selling point.  Hafley takes over a program that hasn’t won eight games since 2009.  So too does Hafley lack a fully stocked cupboard.  BC’s top running back and starting quarterback are gone.  Defensively there is a quality experience to draw on.

Blue Devils Look for Home Cooking Remedy  

Last week Duke scored a bet on NCAAF payout at Notre Dame.  As a 21.5-point dog, the Blue Devils lost 27-13.  Overall Duke was outgained 441-332.  Notre Dame chewed up the Blue Devils for 178 yards rushing.  Duke quarterback Chase Brice was 20 of 37 for 259 yards in his first game as a full-time starter.
