Georgia Southern Eagles at Clemson Tigers

When and Where: Saturday, September 15 at 12 p.m. ET at Memorial Stadium in Clemson, SC

The Eagles secured their second win of the season, defeating UMass 34-13 over the weekend. Georgia Southern is one of only two teams in the Sun Belt to be undefeated heading into Week 3 of the college football season. Clemson survived a scare against the Aggies, winning by two points Saturday night. The Tigers shouldn’t have much of a problem with this easy-scheduled game at home against Georgia Southern.

Giving Clemson its Best Effort

Georgia Southern has gotten off to a very nice start, especially with the way quarterback Shai Werts has played. The Eagles want to run the ball, while Clemson has a terrific front seven, so it’s going to be tough sledding for the Georgia Southern offensive attack. The Eagles rushed for 334 yards on 59 carries. Wesley Fields had 141 yards on 21 carries. The senior struggled against in Georgia Southern’s opener, averaging only 2.7 yards per carry. The Eagles should try to throw on Clemson after Texas A&M’s performance through the air Saturday night.

The Eagles defense looked good against UMass, allowing 13 points. Benz Josue had an interception in the win. Georgia Southern didn’t get a sack, which was interesting, in Saturday’s win. The Eagles have the impossible task of slowing down Clemson’s offensive attack. Georgia Southern only had three quarterback hurries and one tackle for loss. It might be a long day for a Georgia Southern defense.

Easy Game

Clemson’s defense was gashed by the Aggies quarterback play Saturday night. Kellen Mond threw for over 400 yards and three scores as the Tigers secondary wasn’t up for the challenge. The Tigers were able to get four sacks in the narrow win, and they should be able to dominate the line of scrimmage against the Eagles. Georgia Southern’s Shai Werts has a real dual threat ability. The Eagles want to run the ball, which bodes well for the Tigers, because their front seven is one of the best in college football.

Clemson’s Kelly Bryant rushed for 54 yards and a scored to go along with a passing touchdown over Texas A&M. The Tigers freshman Trevor Lawrence threw a touchdown to Tee Higgins as Higgins made such a sensational play for a 64-yard score. The Tigers had a 28-13 lead over the Aggies, but their offense let up in the fourth quarter. The two-quarterback approach for the Tigers has worked well so far. Bryant gives them this tremendous value with his legs, while Lawrence has big-play ability with his passing. Clemson’s offense shouldn’t have much of a problem scoring against Georgia Southern. It might be a big running game for Clemson.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

This is a gigantic spread, and the Tigers did a bad job of finishing the game against Texas A&M after having a 28-13 lead in the fourth quarter. The Tigers won that game, so it didn’t matter much, but they didn’t cover in the victory. Clemson should be able to score at will against a front seven that has done a solid job, but the Eagles fail to get after the quarterback and will be overmatched against the Tigers offensive line.

Prediction: Clemson -34.5

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Georgia Southern could very well score some garbage points in the second half. The Eagles have a fully capable rushing attack that could do some second-half damage. The Tigers offense had their moments last week against Texas A&M. Expect a more dominant performance from the offensive line this week against Georgia Southern.

Prediction: Over 48

Half-Time Side Pick
Rating:

The Tigers will play both of their terrific quarterbacks. Clemson has such more versatility on its offense, which will make for a difficult time for the Georgia Southern defense. Clemson moved the game up due to Hurricane Florence making its way to the Carolinas. The weather might make things difficult, but the Tigers should be able to get off to a tremendous start. The Tigers will show no signs of slowing down. It’s a complete team with depth to keep things moving.

Prediction: Clemson -20

Half-Time Total Bet
Rating:

Expect a higher scoring game from the Tigers. Clemson has a sensational passing offense as well as a nice run balance. The Tigers defense and special teams could be in for a score or two to help with the first half over. Georgia Southern wants to run the ball as it’s been effective on the ground this year. The Eagles might be able to score some first half points to help with the over.

Prediction: Over 26
