Northwestern vs. Boston College Odds and PicksBetting Online free pick: Northwestern over Boston College by 10

You whippersnappers out there may think “What The F**k” when you see the acronym WTF; however, we prefer to think of it as“Wrong Team Favored.”

Such is the case here as QB Dan Persa (a Big Ten 1st team performer last season) is back for Northwestern after suffering a torn Achilles late last year – along with a school record 56 lettermen in all, including 21 seniors and 23 juniors.

Yes, there’s a lot to like about these Wildcats this season, particularly in the ATS department.

Check it out: the Purple Cats are 6-3 SU and 7-2 ATS as road dogs the last three seasons and 5-1 ATS of late as nonconference RD’s of 10 or less points.

Credit energetic 6th-year head coach Pat Fitzgerald, who boasts a 5-0 SU mark in season openers and a 13-7 ATS mark overall as a dog of 10 or less points. “We’re in the best shape we’ve been in since I’ve been here,” says Fitzgerald.

That’s not good news for a Boston College squad whose efforts to trade scores with NU will be hampered by a marshmallow offense (299 YPG in 2010) that failed to gain 300 yards on seven different occasions last year.

Boston College is -3 point favorites against Northwestern at Bodog sportsbook and the total is set at 45.

Eagle fans also can’t be thrilled at the prospect of opening 2011 without workhorse RB Montel Harris, out until Game Three as he recovers from arthroscopic knee surgery (August 17th). And with BC’s win totals slipping in both seasons under Frank Spaziani, we see this as a matchup of two teams heading in opposite directions.

Remember, the Cats roared out to a 7-3 SU start last year before closing with three straight defeats, so they’llbe itching to get back into the win column. The Eagles’ paltry 8-16 ATS failure in lined season openers seals the deal.
