How To Bet On Clemson Tigers – Clemson Looks To Repeat As ACC Champions

Posted by Blake Frazier on 8/12/2012 6:33:09 PM

While all of the talk around the ACC this preseason has been about the Florida State Seminoles and how dangerous they look heading in to the 2012 season, the defending ACC champion Clemson Tigers are having none of it. The Tigers proved the college football betting world wrong last year when they came out of nowhere to open the season 8-0 en route to an ACC Championship. With the top quarterback-receiver tandem in the conference back for another year in Tajh Boyd and Sammy Watkins, Clemson feels it has what it takes to repeat and go all the way again this season.

Head Coach Dabo Sweeney will be the first to admit the importance of the offense to his team’s success heading in to this season. Boyd is widely considered the best quarterback in the ACC, and with Watkins back to light it up in his sophomore season those two will be the focal point of the offense. A healthy Andre Ellington will also be among the keys to success, as the senior running back is back at full strength after being limited by an ankle injury last season. The key to this season will be cutting down on the turnovers from a year ago. After turning the ball over just eight times through their first eight wins, the Tigers turned it over 16 times while losing for of their final six games. The offenive line is a major question mark after losing several veterans, and a lot will be asked of left tackle Brandon Thomas and center Dalton Freeman in terms of the experience they bring.

Defensively, Clemson will benefit from several returning starters including in the secondary where of the four returning starters three will be seniors, including potential star safety Jonathan Meeks. The Tigers lost their best cover corner in Coty Sensabaugh, but Xavier Brewer has proven he can play anywhere in the secondary and is slotted to start at corner next to sophomore Bashaud Breeland. While Clemson doesn’t have much experience on the interior of its defensive line, its strong talent and depth at the linebacker spot should make up for it, including linebacker Stephone Anthony, who has the chance to be special.  Defensive end Melliclah Goodman will be the only senior on the defensive line, and he will need to provide the right sportsbook example.

After winning the title with a roster filled with freshman and sophomore stars, the Tigers have the benefit of getting another shot at the ACC championship with much of the same core talent still intact. The defense can’t get much worse than it was a year ago, and with Boyd and Watkins leading the way on an offense projected to rank among the best in the country, there is no online football betting reason to think Clemson won’t challenge Florida State for an ACC title in 2012, with the Seminoles once again considered the favorites.
