Now the model has dialed in on Alabama vs.Clemson 10,000 times. We can tell you it’s leaning under, but it has also generated a spread pick that cashes nearly 60 percent of the time. You can only see it over at SportsLine.
The model knows that Alabama’s quick-strike offense is propelled by wideout Jerry Jeudy, who’s netting a whopping 18.7 yards per grab. In addition to his 13 touchdowns, he’s tops on the team with 63 receptions and 1,176 receiving yards.
Getting the ball into his hands is standout quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, who has tossed 41 touchdowns against only four interceptions. For the season, the sophomore signal caller has recorded six 300-yard games, including one last time out against the Sooners. In that game, he completed 89 percent of his attempts and tossed four touchdowns — including a 13-yard pass to Jeudy in the fourth quarter to seal the victory.
Just because the Crimson Tide have been unstoppable doesn’t mean they’ll cover the Alabama vs. Clemson spread, especially against the Tigers’ imposing defense.
While the Tigers rely substantially on their defensive front seven that stymies rushing attacks and pressures quarterbacks, their offense is equally formidable. Clemson scored at least 48 points a half-dozen times thanks to quarterback Trevor Lawrence. The lanky, 6-5 freshman has been nothing short of exceptional this season, throwing for nearly 3,000 yards and 27 scores. He also makes smart decisions when the pocket collapses, tossing only four picks and getting sacked just 11 times.
Lawrence’s favorite target is sophomore wideout Tee Higgins, who has notched 11 touchdown receptions, including a big one just before halftime against the Irish. He’s particularly effective in 50-50 situations, effectively utilizing his 6-4 frame to box out cornerbacks on deep throws.
Clemson is a sterling 6-1 against the spread on the road or at neutral sites this season. They’re 3-2 ATS versus teams like Alabama that are winning more than 70 percent of their games and have covered their last two with ease.
