Who is the Public Backing?

As of this writing, public bettors are backing the Tigers at over a 60% clip. Clemson enters play with a 7-1 record and is 4-3 at the betting window this season, while N.C. State is 6-2 on the year following its loss to Notre Dame, and is 3-5 at the betting window.

Key Betting Trends

Clemson is just 1-3-1 against the spread in its last five games and is 2-5 against the number in its last seven games against N.C. State. The Wolfpack, meanwhile, are 1-5 at the betting window in their last six games played at home.

OUR PREDICTION: Both of these teams will bring nasty defenses to the table on Saturday afternoon. At No. 18 and No. 19 in rushing defensive, both NC State and Clemson, respectively, are solid against the run. The Wolfpack are allowing just 3.63 yards per rush while the Tigers' deep, physical and talented front seven has limited opponents to just 3.15 yards per carry.

The Tigers have leaned on their defense and a run-oriented offense that leans on a strong offensive line. Despite their issues against Notre Dame last week in South Bend, N.C. State has one of the best defensive fronts in football. I see this game being played in a ball-control manner on both sides, although that strategy plays right into both defenses' hands.

The betting total has fallen under in five of Clemson's last five games and is 5-2 in the last seven meetings between these two teas. The total has also fallen under in all five of the Wolfpack's last five games overall.
