Clemson has split its first two games of the season, as it tries to gain revenge from a 51-14 loss to Florida State as five-point home underdogs last year, as it was out-gained by a 565-326 margin in that affair. The Tigers are certainly up against it, as the top-ranked team in the country has lost on its home field just three times this century, which is important to consider when making your Week 4 college football predictions. Head coach Dabo Swinney does have six wins over top 10 teams on his resume, as the program looks for its first road victory in this series since 1989. Clemson is 3-4 SU and 4-3 ATS as underdogs the last two-plus seasons.
The Tigers are 8-19 against the Seminoles in a series that dates back to 1970, while the home team has won 10 of the last 12 meetings, which can’t be ignored when looking over the college football betting lines. Clemson is 2-7 when entering a game against Florida State with both teams ranked. It’s important to point out that the squad has been outscored by a significant 425-167 margin in dropping 10 of its last 11 games in Tallahassee.
Florida State enters Saturday night’s game with a school record 18-game win streak, while they’ve also won 15 consecutive contests against Atlantic Coast Conference opponents. The Seminoles have won their last five games with ESPN’s College GameDay on site, with those victories coming by an average of 17 points. During the team’s current overall win streak—it has scored 80 more touchdowns than its opponents. Florida State is 14-1 SU and 10-5 ATS at home since the start of the 2012 campaign, with the OVER going 11-1 in that situation.
The Seminoles are worthy double-digit favorites mainly due to not trailing in a regular season game in 631 minutes and 49 seconds. Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston will likely put up video game-type numbers in this affair, as he threw for 444 yards in Death Valley last year.
Sports bettors will likely play the total, as the OVER is 6-1 in the last seven meetings when played in the Sunshine State.
