2021 Boston College Eagles Betting Odds, Predictions, Preview
What a difference a year makes. There weren’t very high expectations for Boston College in 2020. In fact, heading into last season, most of the talking heads picked the Eagles to finish dead-last in the ACC. Instead, they ended up 6-5, but opted out of a bowl game due to COVID concerns. This season they’ll look to return to the postseason, and things are looking up in Chestnut Hill.
You can expect the Eagles to get off to a quick start. They open with FCS Colgate at Alumni Stadium, before a battle against UMass, a team whose defense is in shambles. A winnable game against Temple in Philadelphia follows, before wrapping up the non-conference schedule against Missouri on Sept. 25. That might be the team’s first real test.
The ACC schedule opens with a trip to Clemson, which might find B.C. staring at a 3-2 record before its bye week in early October. The Eagles then will likely have a crossroad game against N.C. State on Oct. 16 after two full weeks. The second half of the schedule features road games to Louisville, Syracuse and Georgia Tech, and none of those games can be considered gimmes. Home games against Virginia Tech, Florida State and Wake Forest will also be challenging.
The game against the Hokies will likely be the ‘Red Bandanna’ game, which honors former men’s lacrosse player Welles Crowther, who passed away during 9/11 in the World Trade Center while helping and rescuing victims. That’s always an emotional game for the Eagles and the fans, who honor Crowther and his signature red bandanna. When going down the schedule and figuring out potential wins and losses, that’s an important game to remember.
However, looking at the schedule, I am feeling the Eagles likely go .500 at home, and likely .500 on the road, too. They’ll become bowl eligible, likely with a win in the regular-season finale against Wake Forest. The Eagles always seem to win one more game that they’re not supposed to, however.

The Eagles will be fighting to hit the .500 mark, or perhaps even one game under .500, during conference play. You can likely chalk up the Clemson game as a loss, and I think N.C. State spoils their conference home opener, too. The Eagles could sweep a two-game road trip to Louisville and Syracuse, although a split is more than likely.
They’ll also likely split games against the Tech teams, Virginia Tech and Georgia Tech, and a home game against Florida State will be no bargain, either. It would take exponential overachieving for B.C., and several disastrous injuries to other teams, for B.C. to make it to Charlotte. Don’t count on it.

The Eagles are going to be fighting for bowl eligibility, and any slim, slim playoff chances are likely to be over before the leaves have even dropped from the colorful New England trees.
Boston College 2021 Heisman Contenders & Odds
Zay Flowers +10000
While I wouldn’t necessarily bet Zay Flowers for the Heisman, he is going to be a fun player to watch. He led the team with 56 receptions, 892 yards and nine touchdowns, while averaging 15.9 yards per grab. The guy tossing the ball to Flowers will also be a long-shot Heisman option.
Phil Jurkovec, who played two games with a separated shoulder last season, and he also dealt with an ankle injury. He still threw for 2,558 yards, 17 touchdowns and just five interceptions while also running for three scores. Jurkovec can be a difference maker.
