Clemson is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games and 3-9 ATS in their last 12 road games. The over is 6-2 in Clemson’s last 8 games. NC State is 4-12 ATS in their last 16 games and 4-16-1 ATS in their last 21 home games. The over is 4-0 in NC State’s last 4 home games. The home team is 5-2-1 ATS in these two teams last 8 head to head meetings.

The big difference in this game is going to be the lack of defense that NC State plays compared to Clemson. Both of these teams average a good amount of points scored, but Clemson is much better on defense. Additionally, Clemson is the better shooting team by a fair margin. I like Clemson on the road.
