Clemson (10-1) has already punched their ticket to the ACC Championship Game next weekend where they’ll face North Carolina, so does that give them any incentive to cover the two TD spread against South Carolina (7-4) this week? We already saw the Tar Heels get upset 30-27 at home against rival NC State this week when North Carolina had nothing to play for, so does Clemson meet the same fate?

Before Betting on South Carolina vs Clemson

This is your typical South Carolina team – they don’t do anything great or anything exceptionally bad. The Gamecocks do come into Saturday’s game off their best performance of the season though, walloping Tennessee 63-38 at home as +23.5 underdogs. Spencer Rattler was 30/37 for 438 yards with 6 TDs in a performance that SC fans have been waiting to see all season.

The 63 points put up on Tennessee was a nice showing, but the Vols also have one of the worst pass defenses in the country despite being ranked 10th. Clemson has a top 20 total yard defense, so things may not look as good for the Gamecocks this week.

Dabo Swinney’s squad should probably get the win in Saturday’s South Carolina vs Clemson matchup – as they want to finish their regular season 7-0 at home and 9-0 in the conference. How bad do the Tigers want this one to cover the two TD spread though? SC hasn’t won in this series since 2013, and they’ve been outscored 68-3 in the last two head to head meetings.

South Carolina vs Clemson Prediction & Pick

Clemson has won seven straight in the head-to-head matchup, and not only that their lowest margin of victory over the last five meetings was 21 points. +14 is a lot for South Carolina to be getting after they just beat a top 10 team last week, but Clemson is playing their third straight home game and covered -19 in a 40-10 win over Miami last week.
Pick: Clemson -14
