Clemson opens as double-digit favorite over Florida State

Opening odds for the game were released on Sunday afternoon.

The Florida State Seminoles dominated Massachusetts on Saturday in a 59-3 win. The Seminoles will carry the momentum of a three-game winning streak into Death Valley next weekend. Coming into the season, this looked like a daunting affair, however, this isn't your typical Clemson team.

The Tigers are just 4-3 to this point, falling to Georgia, at NC State, and at Pittsburgh yesterday. With Trevor Lawrence moving on to the NFL, the offense has been a disaster. Clemson has a mediocre running game and redshirt freshman DJ Uiagalelei has not lived up to expectations. He was benched for a few drives in the loss to the Panthers before returning in the fourth quarter after Taisun Phommachanh couldn't get much going either.

That said, this game will be played in a building where Clemson has won a school-record 31-straight. The Tigers have only lost twice at home in the past eight years, 2016 vs. Pittsburgh and 2013 vs. Florida State.
