The over is 3-0-1 in Tigers last 4 games overall. The under is 5-1 in Gamecocks last 6 home games. The Tigers are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 meetings in South Carolina.
The Clemson Tigers are playing better ball as of late, as they’ve won four straight games and have scored at least 30 points in all of those contests. The South Carolina Gamecocks have been hit or miss all season long, and the offense still has issues finishing drives, which is why they’re 104th in scoring offense. With that said, Clemson is just 3-8 ATS in its last 11 games as a favorite, and this isn’t the most consistent Clemson team we’ve seen over the years. Rivalry game, points with the home team, give me the dog.
