Can Clemson cover the number for a second consecutive week?
The Tigers were able to cover the spread on the road against Syracuse last week, but doing so might be a little more difficult this week at home against Wake Forest.
According to Betonline.ag, the Tigers opened as a 20.5-point favorite over the Demon Deacons.
Clemson has won 14 straight against Wake Forest, going back to 2008, when a Thursday night loss in Winston-Salem signaled the end of the Tommy Bowden era. The Tigers have owned the overall series with a 70-17-1 mark all-time.
Wake is 3-1 on the season, and did beat Vanderbilt in Week 2, but the Deacs are coming off a 30-16 loss to Georgia Tech. They had this past weekend off so will have had an extra week to prep for the Tigers.
Clemson and Notre Dame have released depth charts ahead of this weekend’s matchup at Death Valley.
For the second time this season, Clemson will be an underdog at home.
Despite Clemson’s astonishing loss to Miami, the Tigers will head to Raleigh next week favored over NC State.
