Clemson is 5-1 against the spread against the SEC, 2-5-1 against the spread in their last eight home games, and 1-4 against the spread following a win. Auburn is 4-0 against the spread against the ACC, 2-5 against the spread in their last seven games, and 7-19 against the spread following a loss.
Auburn’s defense has just been awful but some of that can be put upon the level of competition they have faced but even so I have to believe Clemson covers here.
