The Clemson football team is just one win away from winning the ACC Championship game and locking up a spot in the College Football Playoff.
The Tigers finished the regular season undefeated and are looking to do something special and that all starts with winning the conference.
Clemson comes into this game as a 27.5-point favorite. Here is our pick against the spread for the matchup in Charlotte.
Current Spread: Clemson -27.5
The spread has actually rise on this game since the opening line. The Tigers opened up as 24 point favorites and that line has steadily increased. 27.5 points is a lot to lay down on a game that could be affected by weather.
It is expected to be raining and that could at least slow down Clemson’s dominance for a little while. I’m not saying the rain will keep Pitt in it, but a torrential downpour could at least affect the spread.
I think the Tigers will win the game outright, but I’m not sure about the spread. I believe the defense will come out hungry and ready to go after giving up 35 points last week. I’m going to take Dabo Swinney and the Tigers to cover the spread because I just don’t trust Pitt’s offense to be able to score. I mean, if you can’t score against Miami, how are you going to be able to score against Clemson?
I think we see a relatively low-scoring game. Something like 37-7 or 41-10. The Tigers win the game, but the total will go under the number.
It should be a fun one for Tiger fans in Charlotte Saturday. Celebrating a fourth-straight conference championship isn’t something many fans will ever have the chance to do, but Tiger nation will have their chance Saturday night
