Can No. 2 Clemson cover a big point spread on the road when the Tigers face Syracuse tonight at 7PM ET in ACC action?

According to oddsmakers at, Clemson is favored on the road, as the Tigers are getting odds of -23.5 points against the Orange. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 57 points. Clemson has won four straight with Syracuse, but the Orange are 3-2 against the spread in the last five meetings. Tonight’s game will take place from the Carrier Dome in Syracuse, New York. The contest will air live on ESPN.

Bet on Clemson vs. Syracuse

Clemson still seems to be somewhat under the radar this year. The Tigers weren’t expected to be this good after losing so many key pieces from last year, yet the defense looks better than ever and the offense is moving along just fine. Now it heads to Syracuse with a lofty spread to cover, but Clemson is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games following a win and Syracuse is just 1-4-1 ATS in their last six home games. I like the Tigers to continue their dominance today, especially on a fast track like Syracuse.
