Pittsburgh will host Clemson in ACC college football action this week with the Panthers favored by 3.5 and a current posted total of 48. The game kick of off at 3:30 PM EST and can be seen on ESPN/ABC.

What a difference a year makes! The last 3 times these two teams played, Clemson was favored by 23.5, 27.5 and 21. But this year, the Clemson Tigers have trouble even coming close to scoring that many points in a game, let alone cover a big number.

Pitt, on the other hand, has been a scoring machine. True, they haven’t faced a defense like Clemson’s, which is still among the best in college football. But it does bring up the question of whether or not Clemson can keep up if Pitt manages a couple of quick scores.

Our model is of no hope as far as the side goes in this one as it predicts two scenarios. Using full season data it suggests more of the same for a Clemson game. A low scoring game favoring the Tigers to cover.

Clemson                   47.0          15           
Pittsburgh                -4.0          16
  
Clemson                   47.0           8           
Pittsburgh                -4.0          29

The 2nd prediction covers the scenario we mentioned at the top of this page, specifically, Clemson not being able to keep up if Pitt pops a couple of scores on the board.

Both prediction favor the under though, which is the way we’ll lean in this one.
