The undefeated #2 Clemson Tigers will take their show on the road to battle the Boston College Eagles in an ACC showdown Saturday night from Alumni Stadium. The Tigers are coming off a dominating 77-16 home win over Louisville, and the Eagles came through with a 31-21 road win over Virginia Tech in their previous contest. Clemson recorded a 34-7 home win against Boston College last season.

Clemson Crushes Louisville to Remain Undefeated

The Clemson Tigers head into this one with a perfect 6-0 record in ACC play. They have dominated their competition in four consecutive games which included a 77-16 rout over Louisville last week. Trevor Lawrence tossed two TD’s against one interception in the victory. The freshman QB has taken the reigns as the Tigers #1 QB this season. He has tallied over 300 passing yards in two out of his last three games, and he has amassed 1549 passing yards with an 18:3 TD to INT ratio on the year. Tigers #1 RB Travis Etienne continues to shine. The sophomore RB has tallied over 100 rushing yards in five out of his last seven games, and he is up to 998 rushing yards on the season.

Clemson features solid depth at wide receiver with three receivers with at least 390 receiving yards with Tee Higgins leading the way with 514 yards. The Tigers has dominated their ACC opponents all season behind a dangerous passing and rushing offense. They have scored at least 59 points in three out of their last four games.

The Tigers’ vaunted defense continues to silence opponents. They limited Louisville to only 312 total yards last week, and they are limiting opponents to only 278 total yards per game, good for fifth in the country. Clemson can clinch a spot in the ACC title game with a win in this one. The Tigers rank fourth in the FBS with an average of 47.8 points per game. They are holding opponents to an average of 13.3 points, placing them fourth in the entire country.

Eagles Defeat Virginia Tech, Aim for Fourth Straight Win

The Boston College Eagles head into this big contest riding a three-game winning streak. They played excellent defense in their 31-21 road win against Virginia Tech last week to remain in second place in the ACC Atlantic with a 4-1 record. Anthony Brown tallied 177 passing yards with one TD in the win. The sophomore QB has only tossed one interception in his last five games, and he has registered 1567 passing yards with a 16:5 TD to INT ratio on the year. Eagles’ #1 RB AJ Dillon continues to shine, collecting 245 rushing yards in his last two games, and the talented sophomore has accumulated 897 rushing yards on the season. Dillon is questionable for this one with an ankle injury, and he could be a game-time decision. Eagles’ leading receiver Kobay White has only made five grabs in his last three games, and he has 314 receiving yards this season.

Boston College relies on their productive running game to generate a good portion of their offense, and Eagles’ RB AJ Dillon will be a big factor in this contest if he is able to play. The Eagles’ defense has been stellar in three consecutive games. They limited Miami to only 14 points in week nine, followed by 21 points to Virginia Tech last week. Their pass defense has been terrific, and they are holding appoints to 373 total yards per game. Boston College is scoring an average of 37.2 points, good for 23rd in the FBS. They are holding opponents to 24.1 points, pegging them 47th in the country.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

I am taking Clemson in this ACC showdown. While Boston College is a solid team, they are not on the same level as Clemson. The Tigers feature an offense that ranks both fourth in the FBS in points, and points against. Boston College relies on their strong running game to generate a significant portion of their offense, and the Tigers rush defense is spectacular, holding opponents to an average of only 99.8 yards per game, good for eighth in the nation.

Furthermore, the Eagles will have difficulty defending the Tigers offense. Clemson is averaging 267 rushing yards per game, and the Eagles rush defense isn’t strong enough to contain them. The Eagles pass defense has been average as well, as they rank 56th in the FBS, and Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence features a dazzling 18:3 TD to INT ratio.

Prediction: Clemson Tigers

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

I am selecting the under in this matchup. I am expecting a big performance from the Clemson defense. The Tigers have shut down multiple high-scoring offensive conference opponents this season. They limited an NC State team that is averaging 32.5 points to only seven points, and they held Wake Forest to just three points. Also, the under is 9-4 in the Tigers’ last 13 games against a team with a winning record.

In addition, the Eagles are playing outstanding defense. They have held their opponents to an average of only 18.3 points in their last three games, plus the under is 4-0 in their last four games following a straight up win.

Prediction: Under

Full-Game Prop Bet
Rating:

I am taking the under on the Boston College team total. The Clemson defense is very tough to crack. They have only allowed an average of nine points in their last four games. Eagles’ QB Anthony Brown is only completing 58% of his pass attempts, and the Eagles will have trouble on the ground against a rush defense that is holding opponents to under 100 rushing yards per game.

Prediction: Boston College Team Total: Under 17.5

Half-Time Side Pick
Rating:

Clemson should hold a comfortable lead at halftime. The Tigers are averaging a sizzling 23.1 points in the first half this season. In addition, the Eagles first half defense has been awful, squandering an average of 17.6 points, pegging them 96th in the FBS. Clemson has the edge in all areas and they should make a statement early in this one.

Prediction: Clemson Tigers -11

Half-Time Total Bet
Rating:

I am taking the under on the halftime total. The Tigers first half defense is the best in the country. They are limiting opponents to only 3.6 points in the first half, and an average of just one point in their last three games. The Clemson defense will be the best the Eagles have seen this season, and they will struggle to generate offense.

Prediction: Under 30

Half-Time Prop Prediction
Rating:

I am taking Clemson on the first quarter line. Clemson features the best first quarter defense in the nation, limiting opponents to an average of only 1.5 points on the season. In addition, the Tigers are no stranger to quick starts, averaging a remarkable 9.3 points in the first quarter in their last three games.

Prediction: First Quarter Line: Clemson
