Eagles 2021 Schedule
Boston College Eagles Football
The Eagles took a step forward in 2020, kicking off the tenure of new head coach Jeff Hafley with a 6-5 outright and against-the-spread record and a bowl invitation (although they chose not to attend due to COVID-19 concerns.)
Redshirt junior QB Phil Jurkovec will return in 2021 for his second season as an Eagle after transferring from Notre Dame, and he'll look to build on an impressive sophomore season in which he led the Eagles to the third-most passing yards per game in the ACC.
The Eagles' 2021 schedule is listed above, including results for spreads, totals and moneylines. Additionally, lines for all of their future contests will be posted for each of those bets.
Here’s a brief explainer on how each of those bets work.
Boston College Eagles Point Spreads
Sportsbooks will list a point spread, which is a representation of how many points the Eagles are expected to win or lose by. If the spread for Boston College vs. Notre Dame is Eagles +7, for example, they’d be expected to lose the game by a touchdown.
For the Eagles to cover this hypothetical +7 spread, they could lose by six or fewer points, or they could win the game outright. For games in which they are -7 favorites, an Eagles bettor would need them to win by eight or more points for their bet to be graded a win. If they win by exactly seven (as -7 favorites) or lose by exactly seven (as +7 dogs), the bet is a tie (also known as a push) and the spread bettor would see their bet returned to them.
Boston College Eagles Over/Unders
Want to bet on how many points are scored in an Eagles game? Over/unders, or totals, bets let you do just that. Oddsmakers set the line based on how many points they expect the Eagles and their opponent to score.
If the total for the BC and Notre Dame game is set at 56.5, “over” bettors will win the bet if the teams together score at least 57 points, while “under” bettors win if they combine for 56 or fewer. It doesn’t matter which team wins or by how much — just the combined scoring output.
Boston College Eagles Moneylines
The most simple bet one can place on the Eagles is a moneyline bet. A moneyline is just a bet on which team will win the game.
Moneyline bets are listed with plus (+) and minus (-) odds like point spreads, but it doesn’t matter how much the Eagles win or lose by. Instead, plus moneyline bets represent the profit on a $100 wager, while minus moneyline bets are how much one needs to wager to secure a $100 profit.
If the Eagles are +200 against Notre Dame, a $100 bettor would receive $300 ($200 profit and their original $100 back) if the Eagles pull off the upset. Conversely, if they were -200, bettors would need to put down $200 to earn $100 in profit with a win.
Boston College Eagles Props
If you don’t want to bet on the performance of the team, you can also bet on individual Eagles players. For example, wide receiver Zay Flowers could have his receptions total set at 5.5 for a game against Notre Dame, and you could bet on whether he goes over (six or more) or under (five or fewer) that many catches.
Not every sportsbook offers college football player props, so make sure to find the ones that do if you're interested.
Boston College Eagles Futures
After a somewhat encouraging 6-5 season and many key offensive starters returning in 2021 — including QB Phil Jurkovec, leading rusher David Bailey, and leading receiver Zay Flowers — the future could be looking up for Boston College.
If you agree, you can bet on Eagles futures, including their total number of wins, as well as whether they can win their division or conference. Futures pricing works just like moneylines, so a +2000 bet on the Eagles to win the Atlantic Division would net you $2000 in profit on a $100 bet, with the ticket being graded as soon as the results are decided.
