Notre Dame vs. Clemson Free Pick
The marquee matchup on the Week 5 college football schedule will take place at 8:00PM ET when the Notre Dame Fighting Irish visit the Clemson Tigers.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book GT Bets, the Tigers are 1.5-point home favorites versus the Fighting Irish while the over/under currently sits at 54 points for tonight's game.
It's time to find out how good Notre Dame is. The Irish has several defenders that will be playing on Sundays one day but the ND defense has been susceptible to big plays in the past four weeks. At what point does losing six players to injuries also catch up to the Irish, who will face the ninth-ranked defense in the nation tonight? Clemson is allowing just 260.7 yards a game, which is the same as a year ago when it led the country. (Then again, the Tigers haven't exactly been tested either, with wins over Wofford, Appalachian State and Louisville.)
The Tigers are 4-0 against the spread in their last four home games and 4-0 ATS in their last four non-conference mathups. The Irish, meanwhile, is 1-4 against the number in its last five road games and 2-9 ATS in its last 11 games following a straight up win of more than 20 points.
