Week 6 of the 2022 NCAA college football season includes an ACC national TV contest Saturday night between the No. 5 Clemson Tigers and Boston College Eagles.
Boston College pulled off a big upset win last week over Louisville, 34-33 as 13.5-point underdogs. The week prior, BC was blasted at Florida State 44-14. The weekly surprises continue in college football, but not against Clemson. The Tigers remain undefeated after last week's 30-20 home win over NC State which followed a wild overtime win at Wake Forest, 51-45.

Clemson is a huge road favorite of -20.5 points on the spread, and -1400 on the moneyline. An upset win by Boston College returns +1400, or 14/1 times your bet on the moneyline. The total is lower and below average at 48.5 points.
Clemson vs Boston College Prediction & Pick
Clemson coach Dabo Swinney is an intimidating 11-0 SU and 9-2 ATS versus opponents coming off a straight up (SU) underdog win. The Tigers are still laying a premium price, and Boston College players are feeling much more confident after last week's upset win that slowed their previous struggles.
Clemson has the No. 1 rushing defense in the ACC allowing just 70 yards per game. And Boston College has the worst rushing offense at just 76 yards per game and 2.4 yards per rush. But last week, the Eagles rushed for 150 yards and QB Phil Jurkovec passed for 304 yards and 3 TDs at a whopping 14 yards per pass attempt. Also, the teams are close in pass efficiency offense. But Boston College rates better in pass efficiency defense and the Eagles defense has allowed just 201 yards per game against four FBS opponents while Clemson allows 264 passing yards per game.
The stats and spread suggest a Clemson blowout, but the emotional situation favors Boston College. The annual Red Bandanna Game honors former BC lacrosse player Wells Crowther, who died trying to rescue others in the 2001 terrorist attack at the World Trade Center.
This is also a letdown spot with Clemson off two big conference wins and a showdown at Florida State on deck.
Final Score Prediction: Clemson: 34 | Boston College: 17

Clemson vs Boston College Best Bet
All NCAAF betting lines, odds and prop bets are available on FanDuel Sportsbook.
ESPN's Football Power Index gives the Clemson a 93.7% chance to win based on the huge point spread. Still, Clemson gained just 354 yards on offense in last week's win, and recall against lowly FCS Furman, the Tigers had a letdown and gained less than 400 yards in a non-covering 35-12 win.
It's Homecoming for Boston College, and an emotional night in a national TV game. It won't be a happy one in defeat, but the Eagles will play with plenty of energy and effort. Wait to bet and take 21 points or more when offered.
Bet: Boston College +20.5 (-105)
