The Key: A Georgia defense that returns just 3 starters won't be ready to stop a high-powered Clemson offense on the road in the season opener. Seven of the starters lost were taken in the NFL draft, including first-rounders Jarvis Jones and Alec Ogletree. That's a lot of experience and talent to replenish. To make matters worse, safety Josh Harvey-Clemons was given a one-game suspension for an undisclosed violation of team rules. That means cornerback Damian Swann is the only returning starter in the secondary who will play Saturday. With this in mind, I expect a huge game from Tajh Boyd, who led the Tigers to a win over then-No. 9 LSU in the Chick-fil-A Bowl last season. That LSU team was better defensively than the team it will face this evening. Plus, that win gives Clemson plenty of confidence as it goes up against another SEC foe. Clemson is 8-2 ATS in its last 10 overall, and it is on a 51-32 ATS run in the underdog role. Take the points.
