Clemson vs NC State betting predictions
Clemson doesn’t have it this year. The Tigers’ offense ranks 90th in the nation in yards per game and 91st in points per game. Their starting quarterback Cade Klubnick was supposed to have a breakout season this year, but he has been above average at best. Klubnick has a QBR of 61.5, which ranks 61st in the nation. He was a five-star recruit, and now he’s on a 74-point-per-game offensive line.
NC State is in a good position here. They are coming off a bye week last week where they can likely address the offensive issues that led to just 3 points in their last game. Clemson had the misfortune of traveling to Miami last week, where the Tigers lost 28-20 in double overtime. The Wolfpack will have the advantage remaining in this matchup. NC State is 7-4 ATS with the streak remaining since the start of the 2020 season. In a general show, I’ll take home NC State and the points this weekend.
