The Clemson Tigers lost last week 43-42 at home in a tough contest against the Pittsburgh Panthers and now travel to battle Wake Forest in this important ACC Conference game. Week 12’s college football spread favors Clemson by over three touchdowns. The game kicks-off on Saturday, November 19th at 7 p.m. ET from BB&T Field Stadium in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, but the visiting Tigers are the heavy NCAA Football bet favorite.
Clemson is 9-1 now while the Tigers are just 5-5-0 against the spread. Wake Forest is 6-4 straight up and against the spread in the 2016 season.
Clemson Vs Wake Forest Spread & ATS Pick
Wake Forest opened as +21.5 as a home underdog hosting the Clemson Tigers coming off their first loss of the year. This Week 12 college football spread has creeped up to 22.5, but I would expect Clemson’s betting line to go up to -24.

Bet on Clemson Because…
Clemson has gotten the basic no respect treatment for over a year even though they nearly won the NCAA National Championship last year versus Alabama. They don’t let you know it, but there is a huge chip on the shoulder of Clemson Tiger players and coaches alike. They tend to let their games do the talking for them as head coach Dabo Swinney keeps rolling along.
The Clemson defense seems to over-achieve each year even though they seem to lose many players to the NFL each year. This overall defense is the No. 14 defense in NCAA Football and is matched with the No. 15 overall offense by FBS standings which is UNBELIEVABLY AWESOME! Clemson has a schedule that is brutally difficult and still they keep up some of the best statistical numbers on both sides of the ball making them a great NCAA Football bet.
Bet on Wake Forest Because…
The Demon Deacons get Clemson at home where they are 4-1 against the spread this year. Wake Forest battled the now No. 3 ranked Louisville Cardinals last week leading 12-10 to start the fourth quarter but obviously ran out of juice against one of the top NCAA Football teams in the nation.
The rushing defense of the Demon Deacons is actually respectable allowing just over 150 yards a game on the ground, and they are going against a non-impressive ground game ranked 86th in the FBS statistics at 156.4 yards a game. If they can shut down the run, it will make it much more difficult for Deshaun Watson to get his aerial game flying.
Clemson Vs Wake Forest ATS Pick & Final Score Prediction
Clemson is still in the driver’s seat for their destiny as they can make or break what happens to them based on their performance and wins going forward. Although the Louisville Cardinals passed them in the ratings, the Tigers still hold the ultimate tiebreaker or card since they beat them straight up when facing them at homes
You can’t go against trends, and the fact that Clemson is 4-0 ATS away is a small detail that can’t be ignored no matter what the significance or if it can be deciphered. The Tigers are also the superior team to make one NCAA Football Bet that you round robin, key or just flat out throw down on for your NCAA wagering upside.
