This Week’s Best Bet at FanDuel Sportsbook
Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs Carolina Panthers (Under 50) – Thursday 8:20 PM: See write-up here.
Kansas vs Boston College (-21) – Friday 7:30 PM
The Les Miles era in Kansas is not off to a good start. After narrowly beating Indiana State in Week 1 with a game-winning touchdown with 2:20 left, the Jayhawks followed it up with a 12-7 loss against Coastal Carolina. Both of Kansas’ opponents lost their two other games this season. Kansas allowed 6.3 yards per carry to Indiana State’s Titus McCoy (14 attempts for 88 yards) and 6.2 yards per carry to Coastal Carolina’s CJ Marable (24 attempts for 148 yards).
Boston College is 2-0 with a seven-point victory against Virginia Tech and a 32-point victory against Richmond. Running back AJ Dillon is one of the best running backs in the league and should have a field day against the Kansas run defense. Quarterback Anthony Brown has looked great in his first two games (23/40, 438 yards, and 5 TD’s).
Indiana State and Coastal Carolina were supposed to be two easy games for Kansas to start the season. The Jayhawks’ schedule is only going to get tougher and Boston College looks like they could be in for a big year. Dillion has yet to have a big game for BC so far but this game could be his first big one of the season. It is a pretty high spread but with the way Kansas has looked in their first two games, I think Boston College has an offensive explosion. The defense for the Eagles should be able to contain the lowly offense of Kansas and help them get a blowout win.
