Florida State Seminoles vs Clemson Tigers NCAA Betting: Odds, Prediction, Pick
One of the many big time week 4 NCAA match-up's will feature two teams who are projected to finish at the top of the Atlantic Coast Conference, in the Florida State Seminoles against the Clemson Tigers. The Seminoles are coming off of a tough loss to the top ranked Oklahoma Sooners, 23-13; while the Tigers are off of a win against one of the rivals, the Auburn Tigers, 38-24. This game will draw quite a bit of attention from the ACC, as we have two teams that could fighting for the Atlantic Division title down the stretch of the 2011 NCAA Football season.

The Seminoles have looked impressive this year, even with the loss to the Sooners, and are projected to be in a big time bowl by the time the 2011 season comes to an end. Florida State is led by quarterback EJ Manuel, who has tossed for 666 yards and 6 touchdowns through three games. The story behind Clemson is an interesting one, as they had quite a few question marks heading into this season, but have looked strong overall. One game that many fans and sports bettors alike look past is their week 3 match-up against Wofford, in which they were in a tight one throughout, pulling out a close win 35-27 in the fourth quarter. The Tigers have been led by quarterback Tajh Boyd who has thrown for 911 yards and 10 touchdowns, with only one interception to this point.

This one should be a shootout, but in the end I think that the Seminoles will bounce back with a solid road win after losing to the Sooners just a week before. Clemson has looked very good to this point, but their defense has struggled. It seems that people are making more out of the Tigers' win over Auburn than they really should be. Auburn is not the same team as last year, and Clemson struggled quite a bit with the I-AA Wofford Terriers. The Seminoles defense will make the difference in this one, as I think they'll test quarterback Tajh Boyd in a way that he hasn't been tested in his college career yet.

This line set at 3 is about what most expected it to be I think, but I think that the Seminoles should be larger favorites; despite the fact that they are on the road. The Seminoles are one of the best teams in the ACC, and will be prepared for a big time bounce back after losing to the best team in the country. I like the Seminoles to win by a touchdown here, so I'm picking Florida State to win and cover the spread.
Pick: Florida State Seminoles -3
