The model enters Week 11 of the 2019 season on a strong run, going 105-69 on all its top-rated college football picks this season. Anybody who has been following it is way up.
Now, it has simulated Boston College vs. Florida State 10,000 times and the results are in. We can tell you that the model is leaning under, and it’s also generated a point-spread pick that is hitting in well over 60 percent of simulations. You can only see the pick at SportsLine.
The model has taken into account that Boston College has one of the nation’s top running backs in AJ Dillon. He’s hit the 1,000-yards plateau for the third consecutive season as he enters this matchup with a 232-1,286-13 rushing line, pacing the ACC’s most prolific ground attack (282.3 ypg).
His efficiency on the ground has also made the Eagles one of the best teams in the nation against the spread. Boston College is 6-2 against the spread overall and has a strong 3-1 ATS mark at home as well. FSU, meanwhile, has struggled to a 3-5-1 mark against the spread and has yet to cover on the road (0-3-1).
Meanwhile, FSU is coming off a 27-10 loss to Miami (Fla.). Quarterback Alex Hornibrook struggled, throwing one touchdown and one interception with only 135 yards passing. James Blackman also threw an interception in the game and quarterback play will be one of Haggins’ biggest challenges while he’s in charge.
Haggins and the FSU offense has running back Cam Akers to turn to. Akers has rushed for 983 yards and 12 touchdowns while adding 24 catches for 174 yards and four more scores on the season and he’ll need a big day on Saturday against Boston College.
