Clemson Tigers Betting Odds & Forecast

2020 Clemson Win Total Odds

Clemson 2020 wins: Over 11.5 (-134) or Under 11.5 (+110)

Oddsmakers originally had the win total odds number of 11.5 much closer to more even -110 odds each way, but it appears as though the early market expects Clemson to run the table yet again. Playing in the overall 'soft' ACC Conference has plenty to do with that, as Dabo Swinney's program continues to churn out talent that's far superior to their competition in conference, as well as generally making sure Clemson's non-conference schedule is far from threatening.

2020 Clemson Tigers Schedule

  • Week 1 - Sept. 3 (Thursday) at Georgia Tech
  • Week 2 - Sept 12 vs. Louisville
  • Week 3 - Sept. 19 vs. Akron
  • Week 4 - Sept. 26 vs. Virginia
  • Week 5 - Oct. 2 (Friday) at Boston College
  • Week 6 - Oct. 10 at Florida State
  • Week 7 - Oct. 17 vs. N.C. State
  • Week 8 - Oct. 24 vs. Syracuse
  • Week 10 - Nov. 7 at Notre Dame
  • Week 11 - Nov. 14 vs. The Citadel
  • Week 12 - Nov. 21 at Wake Forest
  • Week 13 - Nov. 28 vs. South Carolina

2020 does bring a trip to South Bend for the Tigers though as they visit Notre Dame in early November – Clemson does have a bye week before hand – and the Tigers do tend to always have that one clunker of a game in conference play each year.

In 2019 it was their 21-20 win @ North Carolina as huge chalk, and in 2018 it was a 27-23 scare at home vs Syracuse. If a team plays with fire long enough like that each year, eventually a slip up is coming. It might not be in 2020, but it does make anything but the 'under' 11.5 wins at plus money very tough to look at for Clemson's season win total wagers. It's not like Notre Dame is projected to be horrible either.

2020 Clemson Game of the Year Odds

  • Week 1 - Clemson (-23.5) at Georgia Tech
  • Week 2 - Louisville at Clemson (-23.5)
  • Week 4 - Virginia at Clemson (-26.5)
  • Week 6 - Clemson (-17.5) at Florida State
  • Week 8 - Syracuse at Clemson (-31.5)
  • Week 10 - Clemson (-7.5) at Notre Dame
  • Week 13 - South Carolina at Clemson (-23.5)

Clemson is listed currently liste din seven Game of the Year Odds and not surprisingly, the Tigers are favored in all of them and double-digits in six of the matchups. The outlier is the aforementioned trip to Notre Dame, which has the Tigers currently listed as -7.5 road chalk.

If you are a big believer in Clemson's 2020 prospects, the point spreads on those games are more likely to grow on Clemson then shrink, so if tying up your money for months isn't a concern, getting a piece of those chalky numbers may be the best way to go about things.

Clemson Odds to win ACC Division in 2020

Yes (-3335)

It's all but a foregone conclusion that Clemson claims another Atlantic Division title in the ACC, as this price is rather absurd to give any sort of serious consideration too. Even if Clemson does slip up once, nobody else within the division is likely to be any better, and that's just the sad reality of ACC football these days.

Clemson Odds to win ACC Championship

Yes (-770)

A futures odds that's definitely more betable in terms of Clemson, but it's still tough to want to lay nearly 1/8 on the Tigers to be ACC Champs for the sixth straight year. It's not like that potential “slip up” game for Clemson couldn't be the ACC Title game, but at the same time, a -770 ML price now on them to win that game is likely to be considered a bit of a bargain relative to what the line on Clemson ML comes out at that time.

Clemson Odds to Make 2020-21 College Football Playoff

Yes (-667) or No (+450)

With the Clemson Tigers laying chalk on going undefeated in 2020, it's no surprise to see their odds of making yet another CFB Playoff priced this way. No undefeated Power 5 program has never not made the playoff, and even in a softer conference like the ACC, the eventual champion is likely to be playoff bound unless they finish with 2+ losses.

Losing once may happen to Clemson during the year, but losing twice before the playoffs seems so far fetched for Clemson's prospects that Dabo Swinney's crew is likely bound for another CFB Playoff semi-final game at worst in 2020.

Clemson Odds to Win 2020-21 College Football Playoff

Yes (+250)

Thanks to the perceived “easiest path” to a CFB Playoff berth, Clemson is currently listed as the favorite in the country to claim this year's National Title. No program anywhere in the country has a lower price then the +250 currently posted on the Tigers, and if you are high on Clemson's 2020 prospects, this would have to be a wager to include in your portfolio.

Clemson Odds for Players to win the 2020 Heisman Trophy

The Tigers currently have three players listed in the Heisman Trophy Odds betting market.

(Position, Player, Odds)
  • QB Trevor Lawrence, Clemson 5/1
  • RB Travis Etienne, Clemson 33/1
  • WR Justyn Ross, Clemson 66/1

Clemson Tigers – Postseason Forecast

As has been the case for the past five years, the 2020 version of the Clemson Tigers should be CFB Playoff bound yet again. Barring a monumental collapse from shockingly bad play and/or suffering numerous key injuries, Clemson will be one of the final four teams standing when Selection Sunday comes around. They just don't have a comparable peer in the ACC.

How they do in the CFP Playoff is still up for debate though and largely depends on the other three programs that grab one of those playoff spots.

Clemson Tigers Season Prediction

2020 is the year where Clemson does likely play with too much fire in a specific game, either vs Notre Dame or an ACC rival, and finds their way into the CFB Playoff already with one loss hanging beside their name. A conference crown and an 11-1 SU record will be good enough for them to earn one of those final four spots, but unless you get hypnotized by the silver-tonged rhetoric that Dabo Swinney unleashes every week over-hyping the quality of Clemson's foes, it's really hard to believe the Tigers are better then the best of the best in the country. They just aren't nearly tested enough in the ACC and they still have at least one clunker of a game every year.

What that means is the only future bet that seems worth while of any investment without having to put up an exorbitant amount of one's bankroll on “yes” for ACC division or ACC Title odds on Clemson is to go 'under' their season win total at 11.5 (+110).

Clemson 2019 Betting Recap

Coming off an undefeated, National Championship season in 2018, the 2019 Clemson Tigers football team managed to run the table again in the regular season. Clemson was a perfect 14-0 SU for 2019 heading into the National Championship game again, but they fell short to LSU in the 42-25 defeat. The overall winning streak ended at 29 straight games, and coming into 2020, the heavily favored Tigers – at least in the ACC – look to start another long run of winning game after game.
