Florida State vs Clemson Betting Prediction

Florida State was able to snap their losing streak in their last game with a win over Boston College, but they will be on the road to face a very good Clemson team here. The Tigers have won four of their last five games, but they did lose their last home game to NC State by one point. Clemson is the better team in just about all of the metrics and Florida State has allowed at least 76 points in four straight games, but the Seminoles have been able to keep games close. Take FSU here.
