Clemson Betting Outlook 

D.J Uiagalelei leads the offense, with a 64.8% completion percentage, with 7.5 yards per attempt, and a 5:1 touchdown to interception ratio. Beaux Collins and Antonio Williams, lead the wideouts with 18 combined receptions and over 300 yards. Will Shipley leads all the backs with 32 rushes for 249 yards and 6 tocuhdowns.

The Clemson offense ranks tenth in points/game (44.5), first in redzone scoring percentage (100%) and are running the ball and throwing at a 50/50 split through their first 3 games. Clemson has the third best run defense in the country, only giving up 10.9 yards per rush, and are giving up only 46.5 yards per game on the ground.  The pass offense is not as good as that run D, but are respectable with the 32nd best yards/pass at 6.0. Their front hasn’t gotten to the quarterback well, with a sack % of only 3.66% which ranks them 102nd in the country.

Wake Forest Outlook

Sam Hartman is back after being cleared from a medical scare, and picking up right where he left off. Hartman has a 62% completion percentage, and a 7:2 touchdown to interception rate. Christian Turner and Justice Ellison have split carries, with Turner being the much more efficient back. A.T. Perry, Donovan Greene and Taylor Morin all have over 12 receptions and 100 yards through the air.

The Wake Forest offense ranks 16th in points per game (41.0), 17th in points per play and 22nd in yards/pass. Hartman has lead the passing offense to the 20th most pass yards/ game at 312.5. The defensive unit is ok against both the pass and run giving up a low completion percentage at 55% and giving up 4.0 yards per rush. The defensive front gets to the quarterback at a good rate, with an 8.7% sack rate which is 24th in the country.

Clemson vs Wake Forest Pick & Prediction

The public loves the over in this game, and why wouldn’t they? These two teams combine to score almost 80 per game. At the DraftKings sportsbook, 86% of the handle and 80% of the bets are on the over. Time to change it up, fade the public and take the under here. I think this total is low already for these two, and Wake can play in a lot of shootouts, but I think they’ll have tougher times moving the ball than we originally thought.

Pick: Under 55.5 (-110) at DraftKings Sportsbook
