Week 11 of the college football season is here, including the another week of fun matchups.
Our handicappers Brian Edwards, Tim Murray and Wes Reynolds are here to give you their best bets for eight games on the weekend's card.
Lines are consensus odds from VSiN's college football lines page, as of Thursday afternoon.
No. 2 Notre Dame Fighting Irish (-13.5, 49.5) at Boston College Eagles
Edwards: Boston College (5-3 straight up, 5-3 against the spread) is 9-0-1 ATS in its last 10 games as a home underdog. The Eagles are 4-1 ATS with two outright wins in five underdog situations this year, and they have produced a 3-1 SU/ATS record in four home contests.
The lone home defeat was a 26-22 setback vs. North Carolina where, the Tar Heels intercepted the potential tying two-point conversion attempt, returned it all the way back for a touchdown and were awarded two points.
Notre Dame is an abysmal 1-4 ATS in five games as a double-digit favorite this season. After outlasting Clemson 47-40 in double overtime for the program’s biggest win in at least eight years, Brian Kelly’s team falls into a vintage letdown spot here.
In fact, the last time the Fighting Irish knocked off a No. 1 team like Clemson last week was when they defeated Heisman Trophy winner Charlie Ward and the Florida State Seminoles in 1993. The following week in South Bend, Lou Holtz’s team lost outright on a walk-off field goal to none other than a Boston College squad coached by Tom Coughlin.
