Duke vs Boston College Week 10 Game Info
2022 NCAA College Football Game
Duke Blue Devils (5-3, 2-2 ACC) vs. Boston College Eagles (2-6, 1-4 ACC)
Date: Friday, Nov. 4, 2022
Time: 7:30 p.m. ET
Venue: Alumni Stadium — Chestnut Hill, MA
Week 10 of the 2022 NCAA college football season includes an ACC showdown between the Duke Blue Devils and Boston College Eagles. After going 1-3 over a four-week span, Duke got back in the win column with a 45-21 victory against Miami, making it interesting to see how the Blue Devils emerge from their bye week.
On the other hand, Boston College hasn't experienced a victory in over a month. The Eagles have lost three straight games, with their most recent defeat being a 13-3 loss to UConn over the weekend. With Boston College only having two touchdowns in its last 13 quarters, only time will tell if the offense can be re-discovered this week.

Duke vs Boston College Prediction & Pick
One of Boston College's biggest issues this season has been a lack of offense, putting up only 14.3 points per game (No. 125). That rate has since dropped to just 7.0 PPG over the last three weeks, ranking dead last among all 131 FBS schools.
Although Duke hasn't been perfect this season, its offense has been much more reliable. The Blue Devils' 32.3 PPG clip ranks 37th-best in the nation and they've hit the 30-point mark in six of their eight games thus far. That's more than what the Eagles can say, having been held to 15 or fewer points in five of their last seven outings.
Duke also has a top-25 rushing attack, which should help them stay in control for most of the game. Boston College allows a whopping 167.7 rushing yards per home contest this season, meaning Jaquez Moore, Jordan Waters and the rest of the Blue Devils backfield should feast on Friday.
With how awful Boston College has looked this fall, this game is a no brainer: back Duke to win.
Final Score Prediction: Duke: 34 | Boston College: 13

Duke and Boston College may have only met five times over the years, but each of those meetings was a relatively low-scoring game. All five matchups finished with the under in addition to the total never reaching higher than 39 points.
With the total also hitting the under in three of Duke's last four road games and in 12 of Boston College's last 16 outings overall, I'm taking under 47.5 points here.
Bet: Under 47.5 Points (-110)
