In what should be a close game, why is Clemson a double-digit favorite?
Hurricanes are Hot
How hot is The U? This will be the third consecutive Miami game that will be featured on ESPN’s GameDay. Quarterback D’Eriq King is putting this program back on the map with his athletic play on offense. They have scored 99 points in the first two ACC games and King is ranked second nationally with 893 all-purpose yards. The Hurricanes were on a bye week and will be well-rested and ready to go for the showdown in Death Valley.
Tigers anything but Tame
Clemson spent its Saturday making short work of the Virginia Cavaliers. The Cavaliers were reigning ACC Coastal Division champions and are a very talented team. Clemson made it look easy with an 18-point victory. Once the game was complete, the Tigers instantly shifted their focus to the big game against the Hurricanes.
The Canes have covered every game against this spread (ATS) this season, while Clemson has yet to cover one (0-2 ATS). In the past, the Tigers have owned the series as the Hurricanes are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 meetings. The Hurricanes are 3-12 ATS in their last 15 games in October and struggle to cover the spread after a big win. The Hurricanes are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games following a straight-up win of more than 20 points. The Tigers are 10-4 ATS vs. a team with a winning record and 18-8 ATS in their last 26 games following a straight-up win.
Miami Hurricanes vs Clemson Tigers predictions
Clemson is already scheming how to shut down King and the main focus is the tight end. Miami’s Brevin Jordan will play in the NFL and has become the go-to-guy for King this year. Jordan already has over 200 yards receiving and three touchdowns. Clemson has the talent on defense to match up with Jordan. This will be the matchup to watch in this game.
Don’t let this big number stop you. Trevor Lawrence and Clemson have the big-game experience. This will pay off when they beat the Canes on Saturday night.
