Clemson has six double-digit scorers in their lineup so far. Jaron Blossomgame (18.4 PPG; 5.0 RPG), Avry Holmes (12.6 PPG), Gabe DeVoe (12.6 PPG), Donte Grantham (11.8 PPG; 6.2 RPG), Marcquise Reed (11.2 PPG) and Sidy Djitte (10.6 PPG; 10.2 RPG) are all playing well for the Tigers.
Nebraska is 4-1 ATS in their last five versus the ACC, and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 Wednesday games. Nebraska is also 2-6 ATS in their last eight road games, and 1-4 ATS in their last five games following a double-digit loss at home.
As for Clemson, they’re 11-4 ATS in their last 15 Wednesday games, and 2-5 ATS in their last seven non-conference games. Clemson is also 1-4 ATS in their last five against the Big 10, and 1-6 ATS in their last seven games following a straight-up win.
With all the talent Clemson has on their roster, it’s a little puzzling that their record isn’t better. Still, they’ve got a long road ahead and should show some major improvement down the line. I like the Tigers to get a cover here, thanks to a very deep and stable roster of players.
