Why Bet The Clemson Tigers To Beat The Orange

If Bryant is unable to go, Hunter Johnson will get the nod. The freshman QB was rated the nation’s top prep quarterback in 2016 by ESPN. Johnson guided the Tigers for their final three offensive series last week and completed all five of his passes for 42 yards and a touchdown.

"I expect Kelly to be ready to go, but if he’s not, we’ll have a plan," HC Dabo Swinney said. "But I’m not going to lay it out for Syracuse."

Clemsonhas won 12 consecutive games on the the road, making it the longest streak in school history and tied for the second-longest active streak in the nation. Oklahoma has a 13-game run, and Alabama also is at 12.

The Tigers have recorded 21 sacks this season, third best in Div 1. The Tigers’ defense is the 19th best total defense in the nation. Clemson is allowing 11.3 points per game this season, the fifth-best mark in the NFL.

Why Bet The Syracuse Orange Tigers To Beat The Tigers

Syracuse’s chances of upsetting the defending champs are about a snowball’s, but can their defense keep the game close?

The Orange have 15 sacks this season, 22nd most in the nation. They just held Pittsburgh to only 3 of 13 on third conversions last weekend. The Syracuse D is underrated, but they will face either an ailing Bryant or a fresh-faced Johnson. Expect the pass rush to make a difference.

If You Still Can’t Decide Who To Bet On

  • Tigers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS loss.
  • Tigers are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall.
  • Orange is 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 games overall.
  • Orange is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games vs. a team with a winning road record.

Clemson Vs. Syracuse Week 7 Betting Analysis

Clemson may very well be ranked second in the nation. But that is a technicality. The Tigers are the last team to beat top-ranked Bama. Not having Bryant under center will hurt Clemson’s scoring. If he fails to go bet the under.
