BookMaker has the Syracuse Orange listed as 3-point favorites at home against the Boston College Eagles on Friday evening in week 10 of the college football season. Syracuse has won six of the last ten and two of the last three meetings while going 6-4 ATS in the last ten and 2-1 ATS in the last three games in the series. The Boston College Eagles are 3-5 ATS overall, 2-1 ATS on the road, 3-1 ATS as an underdog, and 2-2 ATS in conference games this season while the Syracuse Orange are 3-4-1 ATS overall, 2-1-1 ATS at home, 3-0-1 ATS as a favorite, and 0-4 ATS in conference games on the year.
These teams are entering this matchup going in two different directions with Boston College having won their last four games in a row while Syracuse has lost their last four games in a row. However, Syracuse has been the better team in the series, winning six of the last ten and two of the last three games while also being one of the better teams in the conference at covering the spread as a favorite going 3-0-1 ATS as a favorite this season which is why I am laying the points with the Orange when they host the Eagles on Friday evening.
