Total: 46If you have not been paying attention, the 2021 College Football Season may become known as the Clemson Tigers’ fall from grace. The Tigers are currently tied with Alabama for the most (6) College Football Playoffs appearances. They have captured six straight appearances in college football’s version of the final four as one of the most prolific programs in recent memory. However, Clemson’s 2021 campaign has been marred by mediocrity. The Tigers fell to 4-3 SU last week with another embarrassing loss to no. 23 Pittsburgh in a 27-17 outcome. With two losses already in ACC play, this will likely be the first season since 2014 that Clemson will not play for the ACC Championship.

On Saturday, Clemson will have another opportunity to put some band-aids on their rough start when they host the Florida State Seminoles at Memorial Stadium. Like Clemson, Florida State has experienced a forgettable 1st half of the season, which included four straight losses to start the year. Since those losses, the Seminoles have regrouped with three straight wins over Syracuse, North Carolina, and a most recent 59-3 shellacking over Massachusetts. During the three-game winning streak, the Seminoles have posted solid point totals of 33, 35, and 59. The momentum on the offensive side of the football should pose concern for Clemson’s struggling offense, and bettors should rejoice in the fact that oddsmakers are giving the Seminoles 10 points against the 0-7 (ATS) Tigers.

Florida State Seminoles vs. Clemson Tigers Betting Analysis

Looking at this Florida State vs. Clemson match-up, bettors are not going to find solace in backing Florida State frequently this year. With all due respect, the Seminoles are not a great football team, especially on the defensive side of the football. Luckily for Florida State, they don’t need to be great on defense against Clemson. The Tigers’ offense is in complete shambles, and the majority of the issues are at the quarterback position with D.J. Uiagalelei. Uiagalelei has been pretty awful, completing just 54% passing with four touchdowns and five interceptions on the year. In last week’s loss to Pittsburgh, Uiagalelei was benched late after throwing two interceptions, including a critical pick-six.

For anyone wondering, Uiagalelei will be starting on Saturday and the starter for the immediate future. The problem is that Clemson has made their bed at the quarterback position, which has turned their offense from one of the most potent in the country to a very one-dimensional average rushing attack. Even with a subpar defense, Florida State simply has to minimize the home-run plays, and they will legitimately get the opportunity to sell out against the run. On the other side of the ball, Clemson’s defense is very respectable, but they are not bulletproof, especially with the game scripts they have battled this season with a big negative in time of possession stats. Ever since the Seminoles turned to QB Jordan Travis, the offense has vastly improved, especially on 3rd down. If Florida State can keep drives alive and use running backs Jashaun Corbin and Treshaun Ward to wear this Clemson defense down, I believe they will have every opportunity to win this game outright.

Jay’s Pick: I have absolutely no trust in the Clemson offense and believe the 10 points being given to Florida State is extremely generous. Take Florida State +10.
