Clemson vs North Carolina State 2019 College Football Week 11 Spread & Pick

Why Bet On Clemson?

Even as whopping 32-point road faves, there are a bunch of good reasons to back Clemson in this matchup. First and foremost, Clemson will be highly motivated to get a statement-making victory after falling to fifth nationally, just outside of making the College Football Playoff in this week’s CFP rankings.

Then, there’s the fact that the Tigers have scored a whopping 208 total points over their last four games and an identical 59 points in each of their last two games. Clemson also averages almost 20 points per game more than NC State while simultaneously allowing just over 14 fewer points per game defensively. Last but not least, Clemson has won seven straight in this ACC rivalry including a resounding 41-7 smackdown last season as a 17.5-point home favorite.

First, NC State is playing at home where they’ve gone 4-0 this season. Then, there’s the fact that NC State is getting an insane amount of points as home dogs in this one and that they haven’t lost a home date to Clemson by more than 20 points in over a decade.

Clemson vs North Carolina State Expert Analysis and Prediction

Clemson has absolutely annihilated their last four opponents, by putting 45 points on the board against Florida State and Louisville before putting 59 on the scoreboard against Boston College and Wofford. Not only that, but NC State just lost to nationally-ranked Forest by 34 points last weekend and by 21 points to BC in their previous game.

Clemson has gone 8-1 ATS in their last 9 road games, 14-3 ATS in their last 17 conference games and 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games overall. North Carolina State has gone an uninspiring 1-4 ATS in their last 5 conference games and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games overall.

I don’t like the high spread, but with the Tigers having a lot to play for and the road team going 13-6 ATS in the last 19 meetings in this ACC rivalry, I am going to back the Clemson Tigers to get it done!

Pick: Clemson 49 NC State 14
