13-7 Bowls 2016-17
CLEMSON TIGERS +7 -115 WINNER
Edge Clemson Passing offense vs Bama passing D. Best player on field Deshaun Watson. ACC 9-2 ATS Bowls.
BIG Edge Bama Rushing Defense. Edge Bama Rushing Offense vs Clemson rush D.
Recent form BIG check mark Tigers. They shut out a very good Buckeyes team for first time in 24 years. If that was a horse race Clemson would have earned 119 Beyer. On the other hand Alabama was in a dog fight against an overrated young Husky team from arguably the worst Big 5 conference 0-6 ATS.
Bama has steamrolled just about every team and Clemson often has played down to the level of It's competition. Tonight Clemson rises up again. To beat Goliath you have to show no fear and back it up. USC had it for a quarter. Huskies had it for for a half. Clemson has that swagger and can back it up in 4 qtrs with their passing game (see Ole Miss vs Bama 421 yds passing 43pts) and a QB that will create plays. This Elite Tiger offense should score enough to keep pace with Bamas bruising ground attack. Still always scary betting against the unbeaten Giant.
You have to beat bama via the air. Still may not be enough. We will see. If bama can pressure Watson, it will eventually get to him. Clemson defense looked lights out last week. If they can keep hurts contained running the ball, they will slow bama. I can see a low scoring game.
I think we will both agree, this was not an easy game to pick. Wish you the best this week and keep up the good work.
