Free Sports Game Preview and Prediction: Massachusetts vs. Boston College
Saturday, September 01, 2018 1:00 PM
Play: Point Spread: 18.0/-108 Massachusetts
Expectations are high in Chestnut Hill as Boston College is coming off a pair of 7-6 seasons and it returns 16 starters. The Eagles finished strong last season with wins in five of their last six games but lost to Iowa in the Pinstripe Bowl to kill the offseason momentum. Defense used to be the strength of this team but they struggled mightily against the run last season and they lost five starters including All-ACC defensive end Harold Landy. On the other side of the ball, one big issue that could limit the Eagles is that quarterback Anthony Brown is recovering from a serious knee injury and only returned to live action recently. Massachusetts is coming off its best season since joining the FBS and while 4-8 does not look very good, it was considered a very successful season. What made it especially promising was that the Minutemen closed by going 4-2 in their last six games and of the eight losses, six of those were by 10 points or less and another loss to Mississippi St. by just 11 points. Like the Eagles, Massachusetts has 16 starters returning with the bulk of those on offense that was very potent down the stretch. Quarterback Andrew Ford was outstanding, throwing for 2,924 yards with 22 touchdowns and just four picks. The Minutemen have the advantage of already playing a game last week as they rolled over Duquesne and while the opponent was not a good one, it gives them game experience. They fall into a profitable situation where we play on road underdogs that averaged 400 or more total ypg last season, after gaining 6.25 or more yppl in their previous game.
