Week 12 of the 2022 NCAA college football season includes a showdown between the Boston College Eagles and No. 18 Notre Dame Fighting Irish. After suffering four consecutive losses, Boston College reversed its fortune last weekend with a 21-20 victory over then-No. 16 NC State.

Meanwhile, Notre Dame's recent surge continued with a 35-32 win against Navy in Week 11. Quarterback Drew Pyne made sure that everyone in the offense got involved, throwing out four touchdown passes to four different pass-catchers.

Notre Dame enters this contest as a heavy favorite on the spread and moneyline. This 2:30 p.m. ET clash also features a total of 42.5, which is lower than most of this week's projected totals.

Boston College vs Notre Dame Prediction & Pick

While Boston College's latest win was much-needed, it wasn't an overly impressive victory. The Eagles still coughed up the ball three times and went 5-of-17 (29.4%) on third-down conversions, which isn't even to mention their recording -1 rushing yard on 23 attempts.

Boston College can try to rely on the passing game to win yet again, but Notre Dame is surrendering the 20th-fewest passing yards this season on a 57.62% completion rate (No. 29). The Fighting Irish simply don't budge when it comes to the pass, which should frustrate Boston College to no end.

On top of that, Notre Dame is averaging a whopping 38.8 points over its last four games. Taking into account that Boston College owns the fifth-worst road offense in the country (12.6 PPG), the Fighting Irish's ascent should continue.

Final Score Prediction: Notre Dame: 38 | Boston College: 14

Boston College vs Notre Dame Best Bet

Although Notre Dame has beaten Boston College eight straight times, the former has won the last three meetings by an average margin of 25 points. Two of those outings were won by at least 29 points, which is more than enough to cover this week's spread.

I'm more than comfortable with taking Notre Dame at -20.5 on the spread. Three of Boston College's last five losses have been by 21-plus points, including two of its last three games against ranked schools.

With the Eagles struggling against the spread (ATS) this season while Notre Dame is 7-0 ATS in its last seven outings against the ACC, give me the Fighting Irish covering the spread.

Bet: Notre Dame -20.5 (-115)
