It’s Championship Saturday, as the Clemson Tigers, who are one win away from reaching the College Football Playoff yet again, face off against the Pittsburgh Panthers in the ACC Championship game live from the Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina.
The Tigers are coming off a 56-35 win over South Carolina last week, while Pitt lost on the road to Miami 24-3. Pitt won the last meeting between these two schools 43-42.
#2 Clemson Tigers
Clemson should win this game with ease on Saturday night, but, as we have seen in the past, never rule out any team no matter who high the point spread is.
This Tiger offense has been scary good this year, scoring more than 50 points four times, and having an average of 45.7 points per game. Defensively they have been just as spectacular, holding their opponents to under 10 points 6 times, and averaging only 14 points against per game. Their average margin of victory is 31.7 points per game.
Last week the Gamecocks gave the Tigers a run for their money, which proves they are vulnerable, gaining 600 yards of total offense, but they just couldn’t pass their way to a win. Clemson netted 744 total yards in that game, 393 through the air, and 351 on the ground. Their balanced attack is exactly why they will win this game on Saturday.
#24 Pittsburgh Panthers
Prior to their loss against Miami, Pitt had won four games in a row, which catapulted them into the Top 25, and now, this team becomes the last savior for any football fan who really wants to see some parity in the Playoff.
The Panthers seem to have three sides to their identity in 2018. The first, which showed its face four times, is the team that knows how to put an opponent away, winning by more than 10 points. The second showed up only three times, in games where it appears the team just gave up as soon as the ball was kicked off. And the third looks like a team that has character won’t give up no matter what. I hope the third shows up here on Saturday.
Pitt could only manage to gain 200 yards from scrimmage last week against Miami. If that same offense shows up again this week, it is going to be a very long day for the Panthers.

Clemson should win this game, but there is one stat that I left out for this segment especially. Clemson is 1-5 ATS when they are favored by 21 points or more. Take that idea with you when you place your bets.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Pittsburgh +24. Free ATS or O/U final score pick provided below!
Clemson is the better team in this game, hence the #2 ranking, and it will take the Pitt Panthers playing out of their heads to get a win here, but they’ve done it before, so don’t rule them out of this one.
Take the Tigers to win this game on neutral ground, but take Pittsburgh to cover the spread. I am thinking the total will go OVER the number as well in this one.
