Why Bet The Clemson Tigers To Beat The Hokies
Clemson has dispatched a gauntlet of foes through four games, beating No. 13 Auburn at home and No. 17 Louisville before surviving a tough home clash with Boston College last Saturday, 34-7. This game versus the Hokies could be their toughest.
The Tigers braintrust has done a fantastic job in replacing the now Texans QB Deshaun Watson. New starter junior QB Kelly Bryant has been could be better than his predacessor. He has thrown for 873 yards and two touchdowns this season. Those numbers won’t stack up with other college QBs, but he’s a dual-threat quarterback who has rushed for seven scores.
The Tigers offenese is getting all of the credit by averaging 37.8 points and 510.0 combined yards per game, the defense could win games on its own. The stout D is ranked third nationally in fewest yards and points allowed, and its 17 sacks are tied for second-most in the country behind Michigan’s 18.
Why Bet The Virginia Tech Hokies To Beat The Tigers
Virginia Tech offense doesn’t get the praise Clemson does, and their quarterback is virtually unknown nationally, that is until this tilt versus the defending national champ.
Redshirt freshman QB Josh Jackson has thrown for 1127 yards, 11 touchdowns, and one interception. He has posted eight of those eleven touchdowns in the last two games. His 177.4 efficiency rating ranks eighth nationally. He’s the reason VT is unbeaten and looking to upset Clemson in an ACC battle.
If You Still Can’t Decide Who To Bet On:
- Tigers are 4-0 ATS vs. a team with a winning record.
- Tigers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall.
- Hokies are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as an underdog.
- Hokies are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games on grass.
Clemson Vs. Virginia Tech Week 5 Betting Analysis:
I mentioned Josh Jackson needs time inside the pocket to be effective. Clemson has arguably the best defensive front seven in the nation and their 17 are proof pudding. They won’t give the young Hokies’ QB to find an open wide reciever.
Clemson will want to win this game in championship fashion if they want to take a step closer to the nation’s top ranking. Take Clemson to cover.
