Clemson 2-0 after topping A&M

Clemson started the year with a lopsided win over Furman and then survived a battle with Texas A&M last week on the road, winning 28-26. The Tigers have failed to cover in both games and are 1-1 with the over/under total. Clemson has hit the under in four of its last five overall.

The Tigers are putting up 38 points and 472 yards per game on offense this year. Clemson has been using two quarterbacks so far, with Kelly Bryant throwing for 337 yards and two scores while Trevor Lawrence has thrown for 230 yards and four touchdowns. Bryant has also rushed for 98 yards and two scores. Defensively, they are giving up 16.5 points and 332 yards per contest. Their run defense is holding opponents to just 94 rushing yards per contest.

Georgia Southern off to a good start

Georgia Southern has gotten off to a 2-0 start thanks to wins over South Carolina State and UMass. The Eagles are 2-0 against the spread and have hit the under in both games. They have hit the under in three straight and five of their last seven games.

The Eagles are averaging 35.5 points and 418 yards per game on offense right now while the defense is allowing just 9.5 points and 237 yards per contest. Georgia Southern has a big rushing attack, led by QB Shai Werts. He has rushed for 246 yards and four touchdowns while throwing for 183 yards and two scores. Wesley Fields has run for 173 yards and a score.

College Football Betting Trends

Clemson

Clemson has hit the under in seven of their last nine at home and in four of their last five against Sun Belt opponents.

Georgia Southern

The Eagles are 8-1 with the under in their last nine games after allowing less than 20 points in their previous game and 9-2 with the under in their last 11 games following a win.

Prediction:

This total is very low for a Clemson team that has the capability of putting up a lot of offense, as we saw against Furman. Georgia Southern isn’t a defense that should create a lot of problems for the Tigers. Clemson’s defense could lock up the Eagles, but I would expect some garbage points in the second half when the game is out of hand. The weather isn’t expected to get out of control at Clemson, so I like the over to hit.
