For the first time in years, there were some doubts about the Tigers in the early going. They barely escaped a couple of games and then had themselves a QB controversy, all of which now seems like a million years ago. Alabama is the deserving #1 team in the nation, but in my opinion, no-one is playing better football than Clemson is right now. The Tigers will hit the road this weekend to go against the Boston College Eagles, a game that they will start as a 20.5-point favorite. The point total for this one has been set at 58.

Why bet on the Clemson Tigers?The Tigers have reached this stage of the season with a perfect 9-0 record, but it is what they have done in their last 4 games that have people talking about them being a potential National Champion. As we mentioned earlier, they had a couple of close calls against Texas A&M and Syracuse earlier in the season, but since naming QB Trevor Lawrence as their starter, we have watched that young man go from strength to strength.
Over their last 4 games, Clemson has outscored their opposition by a combined score of 240-36, which is totally ridiculous. They are now looking like the one team that has all the tools to seriously challenge Alabama. Clemson has gone 9-1 SU in their last 10 meetings with Boston College, with the sole loss in that run coming on the road. Overall, they have covered the spread in each of their last 4 games.

Why bet on the Boston College Eagles?While the Eagles may be looking like a lamb awaiting the slaughter here, it is worth noting that they have covered the spread in each of their last 4 games, 2 of which came in games that they started as an underdog. They are also on a very positive run of form at the moment, winning 3 in a row and 4 of their last 5 games.
The Eagles have saved their best ball for their home games this season, posting a perfect 5-0 record in games played at Chestnut Hill. They have gone 4-1 ATS in those 5 home games this season, but they may have a tough time doing so against a Clemson team that is damn near perfect right now.
