WAKE FOREST vs. CLEMSON PREDICTION

Clemson comes into this one ranked fifth in the nation, led by former championship head coach Dabo Swinney. Dabo has done an outstanding job with the Clemson program, making them one of the biggest powerhouses in college football. They are considered a threat once again to win the national championship mainly because they represent one of the best defenses in the nation.

Wake Forest had one of their best seasons in program history last year, led at the helm by QB Sam Hartman. Their eleven wins last tied the school record for most wins in a single season. This is a program that has been around since 1908, so that is quite an accomplishment. Hartman is back at QB this year, and he has helped lead Wake to a 3-0 start. This 3-0 start has them ranked twenty-first in the nation, and with a win today, they would skyrocket up the rankings. Hartman knows that this defense will be his toughest task of the year. The Tigers come into this game as a touchdown favorite. 

I am backing Clemson with the points. This is a Clemson line as they are laying a full touchdown on the road in conference play to a team that has a top-five offense in the nation. Clemson has a top-three defense in the nation in my eyes, and I think Wake runs into a rock wall today. Offensively I trust that Clemson will be able to run the ball effectively, and that should open up their passing game as the game goes on. The Tigers will be too much to handle today. Let’s stay hot! 

WAKE FOREST vs. CLEMSON PICK

Pick: Clemson -7 -115 (Bet $115 to win $100)
