Two teams that really need an ACC win meet on Saturday in a regionally televised game on ABC that those who bet college football will get to watch.
North Carolina is a slight favorite in NCAA betting as they host Clemson.
Clemson Coach is Not Worried – Clemson coach Dabo Swinney says he is not worried about his team but maybe he should be. The Tigers are now 2-2 and face a critical road game at North Carolina. The Tar Heels are a 2.5 point home favorite against the Tigers at Sbg global.com.
Clemson has Problems – Despite what Swinney has said, the Tigers have problems. Quarterback Kyle Parker is looking forward to his baseball career and his receivers are simply not very good. The defense continues to make mistakes and Swinney can’t coach. The coach better realize his team has problems or they could fall down the sink hole real fast. Clemson can’t throw the ball deep and opposing defenses are crowding the line of scrimmage. Receivers are dropping balls and overall the team just doesn’t look well prepared. Parker is a decent quarterback but he has lost confidence in his receivers.
North Carolina has their Own Issues – The Tar Heels are really no better than Clemson. They never know from week to week which players will be eligible. Head coach Butch Davis has had a nightmare season and he is doing his best to keep the team together. The team did get a big win last week against East Carolina and perhaps they have turned the corner.
Clemson as a Dog – The Tigers are 9-1 ATS in their last 10 games as a road underdog. The problem with taking Clemson is that the Tar Heels are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games. The trends point to a high scoring game as the Over is 6-0 in the Tigers last 6 conference games and the Over is 4-0 in the Tar Heels last 4 conference games. Plus the Over is 11-4 in the Tar Heels last 15 home games. You might want to take a shot with the over as you bet college football since this is a TV game. The side looks tough so perhaps you can put together a teaser and increase the points you get.
