4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Clemson -33
Georgia Southern hasn’t been the hottest bet on the road as they could only muster a 3-9-1 ATS record on the road in their last 13 tries.
Meanwhile, Clemson has been bulldozing squads at home winning 11 of their past 12 contests.
Clemson is coming off of a hard-fought win and I’m sure they aren’t looking ahead to Georgia Tech next week, so I expect them to come out focused and on a high after edging out Texas A&M.
Georgia Southern is a team that runs the football, but they are about to experience an elite defensive line, which isn’t a good matchup for them, not to mention they have a look ahead contest with Arkansas State at home next week.
Back Clemson to cover the big spread as they have the matchup advantage in this one.
