2022 NCAA College Football Game
Boston College Eagles (2-7, 1-5 ACC) vs. No. 22 NC State Wolfpack (7-2, 3-2 ACC)
Date: Saturday, Nov. 12, 2022

Venue: Carter-Finley Stadium — Raleigh, NC
Coverage: ACC Network
Week 11 of the 2022 NCAA college football season includes a matchup between ACC rivals when Boston College pays a visit to the No. 22 NC State Wolfpack. Boston College's season has gone from bad to worse ahead of this matchup, losing four straight games following a 38-31 loss to Duke over the weekend.
It's been mostly sunshine for NC State lately. The Wolfpack have won three of their last four games, including each of the last two in as many weeks. Their most recent victory was a 30-21 effort over then-No. 21 Wake Forest, which saw quarterback MJ Morris go 18-of-28 on passing plays for 210 yards and a trio of touchdowns.

NC State enters this contest as a heavy home favorite on the spread and moneyline. This 3:30 p.m. ET clash also features a total of 42.5, which is low compared to this week's projected totals.
Boston College vs NC State Prediction & Pick
Oddsmakers haven't given Boston College much of a fighting chance in this matchup. Not only does NC State enter as the -1700 favorite, but those odds carry an implied probability of 94.4%.
Nevertheless, it makes sense that the home team is the clear-cut favorite. The all-time might lean in favor of Boston College, 9-8, but it's NC State that's won three of the last four meetings. Furthermore, the Wolfpack blew out the Eagles, 33-7, in their most recent meeting last season.
I fully expect NC State to continue its winning ways at home this weekend. Boston College doesn't have much going for it, owning a 1-5 record against the ACC while being held to 10.5 points per game on the road this season, ranking fourth-worst in the entire country.
NC State might not have the best offense (23.6 PPG, No. 88), but it's still more reliable than Boston College's attack. Besides, it's hard trusting the Eagles when they've lost seven of their last eight conference matchups.
Final Score Prediction: NC State: 31 | Boston College: 10

This is a game where taking the under is the best decision. After all, the ACC rivals are combining for just 40.0 PPG this season and aren't known for offensive outbursts. Before scoring 31 points against Duke last week, Boston College averaged seven points in the previous three games, finishing with exactly three twice.
Though NC State's offense hasn't been as bad, the team has been held to 22 or fewer points in four of its last five outings. With the total also going under in six of the last seven Eagles-Wolfpack showdowns, I'm backing the under yet again.
Bet: Under 42.5 Points (-110)
