The Duke Blue Devils are having a tremendous season. Historically, they have one of the worst football programs in the Power 5, but they enter play today with a 5-3 record.

Duke’s only losses came from Carolina, Georgia Tech, and Kansas — another school with a terrible football program that is having a great year. While the Blue Devils don’t have aspirations of winning the ACC, they will be in their first bowl game since 2018.

Boston College has been terrible this year, 2-6 straight up and 1-7 at the spread. Beating Louisville by 1 will likely be the high point of their season, as they are in for an ugly one tonight.

Duke has clobbered teams in their wins, and their losses have been close. This is a great team that will cream the Eagles tonight.

Oregon State @ Washington

Up in the Pacific Northwest, there’s a PAC-12 battle tonight at Husky Stadium.

Both of these teams look sharp this season with a record of 6-2, but their chance at the conference is gone, with all losses coming within the PAC-12. The loser in this one will slip a ways down the standings as their conference record will move to 3-3.

Washington has dominated this rivalry, as they had beaten the Beavers nine times in a row prior to last year. Last October, Oregon State edged out Washington by three. As a four-and-a-half-point dog, the Beavers have a chance to start a streak of their own.

Oregon State has had some nice wins, most recently, they defeated Colorado 42-9, but they have been sporadic this year. The Beavers lost 16 – 42 against Utah but were able to hold USC to 17. The inconsistency makes this team hard to bet on.
Washington has been taking care of business with ease this year, butchering opponents, and their losses against ASU and UCLA only came by a touchdown. The Huskies are the far better team, and they will get back on top tonight.

Washington -4.5 (-110) & Over 54.5 (-110)
