It was only a few short years ago this meeting was the premier matchup in the ACC. Clemson needs to pulverize their three remaining opponents: Florida State, Pittsburgh, and Virginia Tech. Granted this year’s edition of Dabo Swinney’s Clemson Tigers (2-6 ATS) haven’t been money in the bank to us sports bettors like they were over recent years. This team must take it up a notch if they want to prove to pollsters that they deserve a shot at the CFP.
Trevor Lawrence made his last appearance, an October 24 win, and no cover over Syracuse. He has missed two games and since, the team has suffered their first regular-season loss in three years and have dropped down to the No.4 spot in the polls. The team did have a bye and Lawrence is most-likely starting here. To me, the biggest factor in siding with them is the fact that they come off their first loss. Swinney does not take losing lightly. This is an experienced team loaded with talent that happens to post over 45.4 PPG while allowing just 19.5 PPG.
The 2-6, both SU and ATS Florida State Seminoles are deplorable folks. This is a team that ranks near the bottom in just about every major offensive and defensive categories. They seem to be getting worse as the season progresses, riding a three-game loss and no cover streak. They lost by 32 points to a very disappointing Louisville Cardinals, 24 to Pitt, and 16 to NC State during their current slide.
They cannot compete here in any way, shape, or form. Clemson has taken the last five in this series SU, covering the last three by an average of 32.2 PPG. The Tigers come off a bye following their first regular-season loss in years and get back their team leader and future No.1 overall pick in the draft.
Guys, this game is going to get uglier than a Kardashian without makeup on. Clemson is 11-4 ATS the last 15 meetings in this series and 12-4 ATS the last 16 on the road. FSU is 2-6 ATS the last eight as an underdog and 1-6 ATS the last seven at home. If you don’t play Clemson here folks, you just don’t play the game.
