Clemson Seeks Stronger Performance in their Week 2 Matchup

Watson Clemson

Despite being held under to 20 points for the first time in the team's last 19 games, the Clemson Tigers survived their Week 1 matchup on the road against Auburn with a 19-13 win. The Tigers should feel a lot more comfortable against the Troy Trojans at home this Saturday, where they are 16-0 SU and 9-7 ATS in their last 16 games.

SHARK BITES:
  • Clemson is 6-2 ATS in its last 8 games in September.
  • Troy is 5-1 ATS in its last 6 games on the road.
  • The total has gone OVER in 4 of Clemson's last 5 games in Week 2.

Troy backers have done well in recent seasons backing the Trojans on the road. While Troy has just three outright upsets in its last 14 games as a road underdog, the Trojans have put together an impressive 10-4 ATS record over that stretch. Troy is 0-8 SU in its last eight games against ACC opponents but is 4-2 ATS in the last six.

Deshaun Watson's Heisman campaign didn't get off to a strong start last Saturday as the star quarterback threw just one touchdown pass and had a passer rating of 121.5. This week's matchup should yield more favorable results as Watson had a 174.5 passer rating in the eight games in which the Tigers were a double-digit favorite last season.
