Only a field goal separates these nationally ranked teams in the NCAA football 2013 betting department, as Las Vegas' experts give a slight edge to the visiting squad in this one.
According to the latest betting odds, Georgia [-3] is a three-point favorite versus Clemson [+3] in a game that has barnburner written all over it, given that the OVER/UNDER set at a combined total of 71 points.
Opening kickoff is slated for 8:10 p.m. EDT (7:10 p.m. CDT) from Memorial Stadium in Clemson, S.C., and it'll be broadcast live on ABC-Sports and Watch-ESPN Live Stream.
Georgia Bulldogs (No.5): The fifth-ranked Bulldogs begin their 2013 campaign not only listed as favorites to win the opener, but the general betting consensus also appears to be on the canine’s side.
The latest statistics indicate that 57 percent of the population believes that Georgia will go into Memorial Stadium and come away with at least a 4-point victory.
Numbers dictate that out of the 2,500 units recorded, approximately 1,478 of them were in favor of the visitors.
Furthermore, against-the-spread trend values support those figures, as Georgia is 6-1 in its last seven games overall, 4-1 in its last 5 games played on grass and 9-3-1 in its latest matchups with Atlantic Coastal Conference opponents.
Clemson Tigers (No.8): On the flip-side, the eight-ranked Tigers come in getting no love from 2013 NCAA football oddsmakers or fans in their home opener.
Thus far, computer numbers have tallied just 1,099 pro-Clemson units for this one, which accounts for only 43 percent of the total action.
However, something definitely has got to give when ATS trends tell a completely different story. Against-the-spread data depicts the Tigers as a great underdog pick for tonight's game except for one blemish.
The Clemson Tigers come in with an 8-2 record in its last 10 games played, a 5-2 mark in its last 7 games on grass, but have a tendency to take teams outside of the SEC lightly.
This is evidenced by the fact that they're only 2-5 in their last seven meetings with non-conference opponents. Who will win this battle of nationally ranked teams destined for BCS glory this season?
