We have reached week five of the college football season which most games this weekend are conference showdowns. This is an ACC showdown when the Syracuse Orange make the trip to Clemson Memorial Stadium to take on the Clemson Tigers.
The Orange were the team to pull off the big upset last year winning 27-24.
The Syracuse Orange have had quite the season so far this year and most believe that this year is different for the team as they come into this one with a 4-0 record.
The Orange are led by Eric Dungey at quarterback who has thrown for 763 yards, nine touchdowns, and one interception.
The offense is a juggernaut averaging 49.5 points per game and although they probably won’t score that in this game, the offense still needs to be good in this game.
On the defensive side of the ball the Orange need to be better. They really haven’t been tested on that side of the field.
If the defense struggles in this game, they are going to have a big issue coming away with an upset, or even keeping it close.
On the other side of this matchup is the Clemson Tigers who are 4-0 so far this season but are only 1-3 against the spread.
The only cover was in their last game when they played a really good game against Georgia Tech, running up the score putting up 49 points.
The Tigers have been using both quarterbacks but Trevor Lawrence has been the better guy throwing for 600 yards, nine touchdowns and two interceptions.
On the defensive side of the ball they are giving up only 15.2 points and less than 280 points per game and they are going to be tested in this game.
If they want to win this game they just need to play their game and put the pressure on Dungey and try to get him to throw the ball quickly.

There is no question that Clemson is the better team but I don’t think they are actually that much better.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Orange +22.5
I think the Orange and their offense will keep this game close enough to cover the spread. The Tigers will still win it with some ease, but the Orange are going to be the team that makes you the money.
