Clemson has a chance to impress the College Football Playoff Selection Committee when it battles ranked NC State on the road this Saturday on Nov. 4. The game takes place at Carter-Findlay Stadium in Raleigh, North Carolina. Kick-off is scheduled for 3:30 pm ET.
Clemson’s straight up record is 7 and 1. The Tigers are 4 and 3 against the spread this season. NC State’s record is 6 and 2. The Wolfpack is 3 and 5 ATS this season.
Clemson Tigers Vs NC State Wolfpack Odds & Final Score Predictions
The Week 10 college football betting odds opened with Clemson as one touchdown favorites. Early betting has shifted that spread to 7.5. The total in this game is 51 points.
Bet on #6 Clemson -7 because…
Clemson is back on track after their stunning 13 to 27 loss to Syracuse a few weeks ago. The Tigers took a bye after their loss to the Orange. Just this past Saturday, Clemson’s defense held Georgia Tech to only 10 points in a 24 to 10 beat down. If Clemson truly is back, the Tigers should handle NC State.
Bet on NC State +7 because…
NC State could have a bounce-back game after their Week 9 loss to Notre Dame. The Irish dominated NC State 35 to 14. Before the loss, NC State had won 6 in a row. The Wolfpack is 4 and 1 against the spread in their last 5 conference games.
Clemson Vs NC State Final Score Prediction
Clemson shouldn’t play worse than they did against Syracuse this Saturday on Nov. 4. They still might have some issues covering a 7-point spread versus a legitimate Top 25 team in North Carolina State, though.
NC State isn’t a joke ACC football team. The Wolfpack held its own on the road versus Florida State early in the season before the Seminoles gave up. The Wolfpack also beat Syracuse, the team that beat Clemson.
The real reason to like the Wolfpack is that Clemson is 2 and 5 ATS in the last 7 meetings between these 2. From that perspective, Clemson’s giving up too many points in this tough road tilt.
I think the Wolfpack keeps it closer than 7 points.
