After a 6-7 finish in 2010 most people were not so hot on Clemson entering last season, but the Tigers defied their detractors, putting together a 10-4 record that featured an ACC title game win over Virginia Tech. In spite of the team’s stellar 2011 season, the odds makers are not too keen on the Tigers chances of defending their ACC championship. Clemson Tigers 2012 Season Odds have the team listed at 5-1 to win the ACC (a third pick to Florida State and Virginia Tech) and 3-1 to retain the top spot in the Atlantic Division. Clemson is a 40-1 long shot to win the BCS National Championship Game and the school is drawing odds to win 8.5 games.Clemson Head Coach Dabo Swinney welcomes seven starters from an offense that averaged 33.6 points per game back to Clemson this year. The defense also brings back seven starters, which means the team should improve upon the 29.3 points per contest it allowed last season. Given the returning talent, which includes quarterback Tajh Boyd, running back Andre Ellington, and receiver Sammy Watkins, Clemson stands a decent chance at surprising the pundits again in 2012.The Tigers schedule features potential non-conference hiccups against Auburn and South Carolina; however, Clemson is presently favored in those two games by -4.5 and -3.5 points respectively. The team’s two biggest league challenges will come at Florida State and home to Virginia Tech. Clemson, which beat the Seminoles 35-30 at home last year, is listed as a +8 road dog to FSU. The Hokies game has yet to be lined, but given the fact that the Tigers topped Virginia Tech twice last season, one would assume they will be favored over Frank Beamers crew.Clemson Tigers 2012 Schedule: 9/1 Auburn (neutral site) (-4.5), 9/8 Ball State, 9/15 Furman, 9/22 at Florida State (+8), 9/29 at Boston College, 10/6 Georgia Tech, 10/20 Virginia Tech, 10/25 at Wake Forest, 11/3 at Duke, 11/10 Maryland, 11/17 NC State, 11/24 South Carolina (-3.5)Clemson Tigers 2012 Season Odds and Schedule:Odds to Win the BCS National Championship 40-1 ($100 to win $4000)Odds to Win the ACC Championship 5-1 ($100 to win $500)Odds to Win the ACC Atlantic Division 3-1 ($100 to win $300) Regular Season Win Total: Over 8.5 wins (-110), Under 8.5 wins (-130) Golden Nuggets 2012 Games of Year College Football Spreads: Pregame.com Pros Scott Spreitzer & Bryan Leonard discuss the Golden Nuggets' 2012 College Football Games of Year betting!
