The 19.5 points Miami is getting at Clemson are the most for the Hurricanes since they were an equal underdog in a 44-13 loss to Alabama in the 2021 season opener against the Crimson Tide in Atlanta. Miami has frequently struggled in big games for many years. This is the sixth time this season Clemson is favored by double figures.
Clemson is 2-3 against the spread in their previous five games this season as a double-digit favorite. This is the third time this season Miami is an underdog. The Hurricanes lost straight up and against the spread at Texas A&M and versus Florida State and covered last week and straight up at Georgia Tech.
The 19.5-point spread is a big number. With Miami struggling so much against the spread this season and Clemson at .500 as a double-digit favorite, it’s tough to trust that number. The total is tight. The lean is to bet the under. Miami at Clemson is more likely to be a low-scoring game led by the defenses.
