Boston College vs Louisville: "Don't Let Us Win Today" - Preview & Prediction

Boston College vs Louisville: "Don't Let Us Win Today" - Preview & Final Prediction

Boston College (4-2) will be heading to Kentucky to play Louisville (3-3) this Saturday. Kickoff will be at 4:00PM ET from Cardinal Stadium (Louisville, KY) and will be nationally televised on the ACC Network.

In honor of the Boston Red Sox who are on the verge of elimination, we are calling this upcoming game against the Louisville Cardinals the "Don't Let Us Win Today" Game. The reason for this is because if the Eagles can beat the Cardinals this weekend it could be the start of a very good run to end the season. If it wasn't for a few dropped snaps everything would look a lot different for the Eagles right now, and let's not forget that a 10-2 regular season is still possible.

Right when Boston College has you down they bring you right back in. It might feel like BC is down three games against the Yankees, but the Eagles still have a chance to turn things around. This game against Louisville is a huge game and a great opportunity for the Eagles to respond. Remember to be patient and have faith in this football program. For Boston Always. Go Eags and Go Sox!

Current Line: BC +5.0 (O/U 57.0)

Chance Of Winning: 35.5%

According to ESPN's Football Power Index BC has a 35.5% chance of winning this game. The spread for this game is currently 5.0 points in favor of Louisville, with the over/under around 57. This spread has been as high as 9 points at the beginning of this week and has been as low as 4 points earlier today.

Does BC Cover The Spread?

We think Boston College wins this game so yes they cover. However, the confidence for this game is not that high. We are batting around .500 with our football picks this season and would be hesitant to put anything on the Eags this Saturday. This would be a huge win for the Eagles though... Screw it, take the points!

Stay away from the over/under for this game. Louisville will be able to put up points with their mobile QB. If BC can pull off the win they will have to put up significant points as well.

Final Score: 35-27 (BC WINS)

This should be a close game, but after the last few games who knows what will happen.

The most important person to watch in this game will be Dennis Grosel. He needs - needs - needs to have a good game at this point of the football season. Even if the Eagles lose the game Grosel needs to have a good game, otherwise this will be a very painful rest of the season. Dennis has yet another chance to prove himself and simply needs to execute the offense or else. The defense has been the most consistent part of this football team all season, they need to continue to hold the opposing team to field goals and create turnovers. The Eagles have great opportunity to swing the rest of the season in their favor with a W.
