If you watch sports on a regular basis, you are already probably well aware that it is very often the teams who get on a roll towards the end of the regular season who do the most damage once the postseason begins. Sure, there are teams who are very good from start to finish, but you can almost see the teams that make the late run coming together and putting all the pieces in place at just the right time. In the college football world, that team right now is the Clemson Tigers.
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.
