The Wolfpack come into this game searching for any kind of momentum after an embarrassing 34-0 season-opening loss to South Carolina. They didn’t even come close to covering the pointspread as 14-point underdogs, and a closer than expected win last week against FCS William & Mary makes the outlook for this contest very bleak.
The Tigers are still smarting from their 34-10 blowout loss to Alabama to open the season, but were able to bounce back somewhat last week with a 45-17 win against The Citadel. Since star QB Philip Rivers left after 2003, the Wolfpack offensive production has dramatically dropped by more than 10 PPG over the past four seasons.
In fact, the Wolfpack haven’t scored more than 30 points against an ACC opponent in the last three seasons. The quarterback carousel from last year has continued into this season as Daniel Evans and Harrison Beck are again platooning and nobody has emerged.
The offensive uncertainty over the past four years is epitomized by the Wolfpack’s woeful ATS mark; they have not had a winning season ATS for college football betting fans against the closing NCAA odds since 2002! The Tigers came into this season with high expectations but those were quickly dashed after their performance against Alabama in Atlanta.
Clemson was overwhelmed by the Crimson Tide on both sides of the ball and looked far from a Top 10 team. The good news for the Tigers is that they’re in the middle of a four-game homestand where they’ll be favored by double-digits throughout.
The bad news about this for those that bet on college football is that the Tigers are 8-12 ATS as home favorites the last four years per the closing NCAA football lines. Currently the college football betting line has the Tigers as 18.5 point home favorites.
