According to legal betting sites, the Clemson Tigers are 28-points über favorites against the Duke Blue Devils. This game will wrap what looks to be a perfect conference play for Clem. “Excited to finish our season at home, first of all,” Tigers head coach Dabo Swinney said. “Seems like it’s been every other week at home type of deal, so excited know we are going to finish up our last games in the Valley.”

Swinney added that “We haven’t played Duke in quite a while. I haven’t studied them very much. Haven’t seen much crossover tape on them. I’ll tell you what, I enjoyed it and then I didn’t enjoy it really going through and watching all of their tape. This is a good football team. A well-coached football team. They believe in who they are and what they do and how they do it, and they put their players in position to be successful.”

Betting Duke Blue Devils

The Blue Devils are at their most dangerous on the road. Duke is 4-1 SU and ATS away from away from Wallace Wade Stadium. All those four wins came as underdogs, against such schools as Northwestern, Baylor, Georgia Tech and Miami. Duke scores 31.3 points per game and gains 419.8 total yards per game. However, even those above-average numbers will be tough to get against Clemson’s unforgiving defense. According to legal betting sites, the Blue Devils are 6-1 ATS in their last seven games on the road. And 6-2 ATS when playing a team with a winning record. Also, they are 2-5 ATS in their last seven games overall. As well as 2-5 ATS in their last seven games on grass.

Betting Clemson Tigers

The Tigers average a whopping 527.8 total yards per game. Which are just about evenly split. Clemson gains 274.4 yards through the air and 253.4 on the ground per game. This yardage is mostly due to starting QB Trevor Lawrence and running back Travis Ettiene, respectively. All of this results in 48.6 points per game. On the other side of the ball, the Tigers are tied with, well, the Tide, in points allowed per game, with 12.7. Additionally, Clemson ranks No. 2 in total yards allowed per game with just 219.8. According to the best online sportsbooks, the Tigers are 10-0 SU in their last 10 games. Winning them by an average margin of 33.0 points. Moreover, Clemson is 5-0 ATS in their last five conference games.

Expert Analysis and Prediction for Duke Blue Devils vs. Clemson Tigers

It seems like all that’s left for Clemson opponents are moral victories. For instance, Boston College. Holding the Tigers to just 27 points is a moral victory. Even if it wasn’t a SU win. Or an ATS one for that matter. But Clemson had been averaging 60 points per game in their previous four games. The question is, can Duke’s offense keep the Blue Devils within the 28.5-point legal betting sites spread? Perhaps not. That is considering they allow more than 400 total yards per game. On the other hand, Duke concedes just 23.5 points per game. All things considered, Clemson is kicking ass and taking names. So I wouldn’t bet against them while they’re on such a roll.
