The Best Sports Handicapper understands the climate in the Atlantic Coast Conference better than anyone in the landscape.

Head Coach Steve Addazio enters his fifth season in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts and fans are becoming weary of the three yards and a cloud of dust philosophy.

Boston College won seven games last season but just 2-6 against Atlantic Coast Conference opponents. They did win their final three contests of the 2016 season against Connecticut, Wake Forest, and a Quick Lane Bowl victory over Maryland.

The Eagles struggled mightily vs. The likes of Florida State, Clemson, Louisville and Virginia Tech, scoring a combined twenty-four points.

Boston College opens the 2017 season at Northern Illinois before returning home to take on ACC foe Wake Forest and Notre Dame who is Independent in Football.

Conference road trips to Clemson, Louisville, and Syracuse are going to be tough. The Eagles get ACC foes Florida State and Virginia Tech at Alumni stadium in 2017.

 

The Boston College offense was 127th in the nation last season, averaging just 292.8 yards per game. Second-year offensive coordinator Scot Loeffler promises a new up-tempo style.

Junior signal caller Darius Wade finally gets his chance after playing second fiddle to Patrick Towles. Wade looked to be a perfect fit for the new style of the game and did an adequate job in the spring.

Running Back Jon Hilliman returns after rushing for 542 yards in 2016, Davon Jones is capable of breaking of making big plays in the running attack. Loeffler hopes the offensive outburst in the bowl game will give the unit confidence moving forward into the 2017 season.

Plenty of talent at the receiver position including tight end Tommy Sweeney a target in short to intermediate passing game.

Wideout Michael Walker (420) yards in 2016 and Jeff Smith also return to the starting lineup.

However the offensive line must perform better in pass blocking, that is the key to success for the Eagles to soar on offense.

 

The 2017 Boston College defense takes on the identity of their head coach. Boston College was ninth in the FBS last season allowing just (314.2) yards per contest.

The defensive line is one of the best in the ACC if not the entire country. Defensive End Harold Landry expects to play at the next level with Zach Allen, and Ray Smith is joining him to anchor the d-line.

The unit allowed opposing offenses just (108.6) yards on the ground in 2016. Linebackers Connor Strachan and Ty Schwab are capable of making plays from sideline to sideline.

Three starters from last season return to the secondary, however, they must do a better job defending the pass.

The key to success for the Eagle defense is to get off of the field on third downs and the secondary must perform at a high level.

Bovada.Lv lists the Boston College Eagles at +20,000 to win the 2017 Atlantic Coast Conference Title.
