The Tigers have a 7.5 spread to cover but have not been efficient this season ATS, gong 1-2. The Demon Deacons are Clemson’s first top 25 and ACC opponent for the 2022 season and their recent struggles point towards betting on them to not cover against Wake.

During the 2021 regular season, Clemson went 4-8 ATS and failed to cover the spread in two of their four games played as the favorite on the road.

Betting on a QB Advantage for Wake

Even though Wake Forest has not been able to defeat the Tigers in the last decade, Clemson does not have the QB advantage for their 2022 matchup. Sam Hartman was not able to start the season for Wake due to injury, but returned in week 2 and has thrown 625 yards, seven TDs and only two interceptions in 2022.

In three games for Clemson, D.J. Uiagalelei has thrown a total of 662 yards, five TDs and one interception. Hartman started 14 games in 2021, while Uiagalelei started 13 and statistically had a much less efficient season.
