5* ORANGE BOWL ATS MASSACRE
West Virginia vs. Clemson,
01/04/2012 20:00 EDT,
Score: 70 - 33
Point Spread: -3/-108 Clemson
While Clemson finished the season with an impressive 38-10 win over Virginia Tech, a lot of people will look at how this team lost 3 of their final four games in the regular season. What few will realize is outside of the upset loss at Georgia Tech, those two losses against South Carolina and NC State really didn't mean much to this team. They had already locked up a spot in the ACC Championship Game.
The Mountaineers finished up the season with three straight wins, but those three wins came by a combined 7-points. One of West Virginia's biggest advantages in the Big East is teams struggle to matchup with their speed. That won't be the case in this game, as I believe the Mountaineers will struggle to keep up with the Tigers. Clemson has played its best football when it matters most, and I think the Tigers will end up winning this game by double-digits.
West Virginia is 4-15 ATS in road games against ACC opponents since 1992 and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 bowl games. BET THE TIGERS -3!
