NCAA betting fans may recall that this rivalry used to be referred to as the “Bowden Bowl.” Clemson head coach Tommy Bowden, son of Florida State head coach Bobby Bowden, as departed the scene however as he was fired earlier in the NCAA sports betting season.
NCAA betting fans may have finally seen a change in Clemson’s fortunes last week as the Tigers scored an upset win at Boston College 27-21 as 2.5 point dogs, covering the NCAA odds for the first time in after five consecutive failures against the NCAA betting number.
Florida State lost to the NCAA odds as well last week in a 28-31 defeat at Georgia Tech, which was the Seminoles’ second loss in three games against the NCAA betting lines. Clemson is 4-4 straight up and just 1-5 against the NCAA sports betting lines this year.
Clemson ranks in the lower half of the NCAA betting stats for offense but sports the 16th ranked defense on the NCAA betting charts. The Tigers have gone under the NCAA sports betting total in three of their last four games.
Clemson has beating the NCAA betting lines in four of their last five games against Florida State and has won four of their last five games straight up on the road. Florida State ranks in the upper fifth in the NCAA sports betting stats for both offense and defense.
Their NCAA betting loss at Georgia Tech was particularly troubling as faith was starting to be restored into the Seminole program, which was floundering near mediocrity over the past few NCAA sports betting seasons. Last year Clemson beat Florida State 24-18 as 4-point home dogs on the NCAA betting board.
Old Man Bowden will most assuredly be most motivated to stick it to the school that canned his son.
