College Football Betting Trends
Florida State is 5-2 against the spread in their last seven home games and 7-2 ATS in their last nine games on grass.
Clemson is 5-1 against the spread in their last six conference games and 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games against Florida State.
Clemson has really been rolling as of late. They have won their last two by at least 30 and three of their last four by at least 28. The scare against Syracuse came without Lawrence for most of the game due to injury. While FSU has been playing better, the Seminoles haven’t faced a defense like Clemson. The Tigers should be able to shutdown the Seminoles and then rack up enough points on offense to cover this spread.
College Football Prediction: Clemson -17
