College Football Betting Trends

Clemson

Clemson has hit the under in six of its last seven home games and in 10 of its last 14 against a team with a winning record.

Duke

Duke has hit the under in 11 of its last 14 conference games and in eight of its last 11 road games.

Prediction:

If there is one thing that is certain, it is that Clemson is dominant on defense. The Tigers haven’t allowed many points all year, especially at home. With Clemson likely able to run the ball against his Duke defense, the Clemson defense won’t have to be on the field a lot and that should keep them sharp and the score low. Duke has struggled to score against lesser defenses in the ACC, so don’t expect the Blue Devils to contribute to the scoring much today.
