Current Point Spread & Over/Under Total
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Tigers are 40-point home favorites to knock off the Golden Flashes this afternoon. As for the total, the number currently sits at 51.5 points.
Clemson hit the board as a 40-point favorite and the line was bet down to 39 mid-week. But that number has been bet back up to the original number of 40, while the total has maintained at 51.5.
Public Betting: Which side are public bettors on for this Matchup?
Public bettors are backing the home team and laying the points at a pretty good clip. Of the wagers currently placed on this matchup, 63% of tickets are on Clemson minus the 39.5 points.
OUR PREDICTION: The under has cashed in four of the Golden Flash's last five games versus ACC opponents and is 11-4 in their last 15 road games. On the other side, the under is a perfect 6-0 in the Tigers' last six games played in the month of September. Clemson boasts one of the best defenses in the nation, so I don't see Kent State scoring much this afternoon. On the other side, the Tigers are breaking in a new quarterback so it could take some time before their offense hums. I like the under.
