The third-ranked Clemson Tigers will look to take another step toward potentially finishing with their second consecutive unbeaten season when they hit the road to take on the South Carolina Gamecocks in their annual Palmetto Bowl matchup on Saturday. While the defending national champs likely won’t have any trouble getting past their struggling in-state rivals, let’s find out if the perennially-powerful tigers can cover the chalk as nearly four-touchdown road favorites.

Why Bet On Clemson?

Despite facing a huge spread in this contest, there are a bunch of good reasons to back Clemson in this affair. First, Clemson averages over 24 points per game more than South Carolina while also allowing two fewer touchdowns per game defensively. More importantly, the Tigers have gone bonkers the last six weeks since narrowly falling to mediocre North Carolina. Trevor Lawrence and company have put 45 points or more on the board in six straight while scoring 52 points or more in each of their last four games including their 52-3 blowout win over wake Forest two weeks ago. Last but not least, Clemson has the big edge in overall talent with a roster full of future NFL performers on both sides of the ball.

Clemson vs South Carolina Expert Analysis and Prediction

Clemson has won five straight against South Carolina including an emphatic 56-35 win last season as a 25.5-point home favorite. However, only one of their wins during the span has come by at least 27 points. Still, right now, I love the way the Tigers are playing and I believe they’ve got more than enough going for them to win and cover the spread in this contest. South Carolina has lost four of five and the Gamecocks have regressed by scoring a paltry 15 points and six points over their last two games.

The defending champs have gone a near-perfect 9-1 ATS in their last nine road games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a straight up win. South Carolina is a nearly winless1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall and I don;t believe the Gamecocks have a snowball’s chance in you know where of winning or covering the spread in this Week 14 matchup.

Pick: Clemson 63 South Carolina 10
