Week nine features a Friday night appetizer from the Atlantic Coast Conference between two inconsistent teams as the Miami Hurricanes meet the Boston College Eagles. Miami was touted for big things this year but has stalled due to an inconsistent offense with poor quarterback play. Boston College has one of the superior rushing attacks and offensive lines in the country but will be up against a Hurricanes defense that is among the best in the lands. All of which leads to plenty of live betting options and opportunities to kick the weekend off in the right manner!
Kickoff for this regular season Week 9 game is set for Friday, October 26, 2018 at 7 p.m. ET at Alumni Stadium, Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts. TV coverage is on ESPN.

Live Betting Odds Analysis
Many fans recall the Boston College Eagles scoring a Friday night upset win over the Florida State Seminoles in a similar spot last year. Correlate that with the terrible Miami offense and you have the rationale for the opening line.
Canes Suffer Drop in Value
Miami has failed cover three of their last four games and is coming off a 16-13 loss at Virginia as seven-point chalks. Overall the Canes are now 5-3 straight up and 3-4 against the spread with five of their seven games going over the total. The Canes were off last Saturday.
Eagles Ascending Profits
Boston College has paid in their last two games and has an overall record of 5-2 both straight up and against the spread with five of their games also going over the total. The Eagles are coming off a 38-20 home payout over Louisville. BC had a bye last Saturday.
Miami has been a poor wagering value on the road getting points with a mark of 3-6 against the spread in that role. Additionally, the Canes have gone over the total in three of their last five games as a road dog.
Counter to that is Boston College’s strong record as a home favorite betting value. To show, the Eagles have covered the spread in five out of their last six games at Alumni Stadium as a favorite. Additionally, BC has gone over the total in nine of their last 13 as a home chalk.
Head to Head
In this head to head series the Hurricanes have clearly controlled the cashier’s cage. For example, Miami has come away with the cash in five of their last six games against Boston College with five of the last six between these teams also going under the total. At Alumni Stadium the Hurricanes have come away with the cash in their last three visits with three of the last four in this series at BC going under the total.
Live Betting Matchups to Watch
Miami ranks second in the nation for total defense and ranks 10th nationally against the rush. That matches up well against the run-oriented power offense of Boston College which ranks 21st in the country. BC head coach Steve Addazio is well regarded as one of the best offensive line developers in the country. Conversely the Eagles defense ranks 66th in the nation for points allowed which could give Miami’s sluggish offense opportunities for success.
Players to Know
Boston College quarterback Anthony Brown has a surprising 14/4 touchdown to interception ratio. AJ Dillon has rushed for 6.2 yards per carry with six touchdowns which forces defenses to focus on the rush. This opens up the passing game for Brown. Miami quarterback Malik Rosier remains the starter despite a 52% completion rate with just five TD passes and three interceptions.
Free Live Betting ATS Pick
This game could be quiet fluid with ever changing dynamics for live betting. The one constant is Miami’s dominance over BC.
