Week 11 college football betting nuggets

Running back AJ Dillon and Boston College will look to upset Clemson on Saturday in Chestnut Hill, Mass. Jeremy Brevard/USA TODAY Sports

Last week, the top trends lost with Louisiana Tech getting blown out and Northwestern failing to cover by a half-point (although the Wildcats pushed or covered for those that got them at +10 or +10.5).

This week, the top trend points to Boston College covering as a big home underdog against Clemson.

Here are the rest of the betting trends that should help you navigate this weekend's slate.
