This NCAA football betting game will be played at Cleveland Stadium. Boston College is coming off a fantastic first season under HC Jeff Jagodzinski reaching as high as #2 in the polls before tailing off in the final few weeks of the season. Kent State was even more woeful ATS than they were SU, putting up a miserable 2-9 record against the closing college football betting line, and in their entire history have only played in one bowl game.
Last year’s catalyst and ACC MVP, QB Matt Ryan (4507 passing yards and 31 touchdowns in 2007), is gone from the Eagles roster as well as leading rusher Andre Callender (969 yards rushing and nine touchdowns) and 10 other 2007 starters, so a lot of offensive firepower needs to be replaced.
The Eagles only went a mediocre 6-6 ATS for NCAA football betting fans last season, but produced a game that will live in Boston College and gambling records for years to come when they traveled to Blacksburg. The NCAA betting lines closed with the Eagles locked in as three-point underdogs.
They were down 10-0 with 2:11 left to play, but stormed back in the closing minutes and not only covered the spread but won outright by a 14-10 final count after scoring a TD with just 11 seconds left. Meanwhile, Kent State has produced little magic for a considerable time now, going 15-31 SU and 17-26 ATS for college football betting fans under HC Doug Martin the last five seasons.
The Golden Flashes are looking to improve this season, and 16 returning starters led by 1st team MAC RB Eugene Jarvis (279 carries for 1669 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2007) will go a long way towards helping the effort. With back-to-back games against Boston College and Iowa State to start the season, expectations continue to be low for this team and their NCAA odds will reflect that.
Even though the game is a virtual home game for Kent State, the NCAA football lines currently have Boston College listed as 9.5-point favorites in this game with a ‘total’ of 49.5.
