College Football Betting Trends

Georgia Southern

The Eagles are 3-9-1 against the spread in their last 13 road games, but they are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games on grass.

Clemson

The Tigers are 8-3 against the spread in their last 11 non-conference games and 8-1 ATS in their last nine games after allowing less than 100 yards rushing in their previous game.

Prediction:

Clemson should be able to overwhelm Georgia Southern without much resistance. The Eagles haven’t played anyone of merit and are likely to experience a lot of challenges against a real team with a solid defense. The Tigers have tons of speed and should be able to roll over the Eagles at home.
