Taking a look at the Sportsbook reports on game day morning, these are the reported consensus trends in betting volume from participating sportsbooks. Note that these numbers will change as more action comes in as we get closer to game time, but it is always worth a look at the morning reports just to see where the money is going.

Important to remember that the above consensus numbers are an early snapshot of public action. The Professional Handicappers League has a few professional consensus services for those looking for a consensus of expert sports picks. Personally, we like to know where the money goes early, especially looking for drastic early money on one side, which is often "smart money", whereas heavy action closer to game time is usually "square money".


The Clemson Tigers is a team we have a pretty strong read on and have had a lot of success betting or against. We have placed 21 documented premium wagers on Tigers games in the last decade, winning 19, next to just 2 for a winning rate of 90.50% and profits of $16830.00. We do not have a premium selection in this game today, but we do have a strong opinion.

Some of the factors we look at are the total points being scored by both teams, which is 150. Together, the teams average 139.8 points allowed, which gives us expected total points of 144.9, which can be compared against the over/under offered by oddsmakers for those inclined to bet on totals.

To determine the game-winner and to consider the spread in a game we can look at point differential as well, but it is wise to weigh the power rating differential even more. In this game, which is considered "neutral", the power rating on the Clemson Tigers is 85.0 while the Boston College Eagles bring a rating of 79.0, meaning, a reasonable line on this game for Clemson is -6.

Taking everything into consideration we do have a free pick opinion on this game.
