Clemson is 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 games overall and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 road games following three or more consecutive home games while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 games following a loss. Florida State is 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games overall and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games following a loss while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 games after allowing more than 90 points in their previous game.
I get why Florida State would be favored at home, but I don’t agree with it. Florida State’s probably better than this recent streak would suggest, but when you lose the ways that Florida State has lost during this skid, you immediately get tossed onto my bad books. Clemson’s had a tough run of games lately and their lone win came against FSU. I look for the Tigers to be a thorn in FSU’s side the way the ‘Noles are a thorn in Miami’s side so give me the Tigers here.
