Predictions For Chick-Fil-A Betting – LSU, Clemson Clash In Chik-fil-A Bowl

Posted by Blake Frazier on 12/25/2012 7:25:36 PM

One of the most highly anticipated bowl games will take place New Years Eve at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, where the No. 7 LSU Tigers clash with the No. 14 Clemson Tigers in the Chick-fil-A Bowl. Each team is coming off a 10-win season but came up just short in its respective conference, and while Les Miles has raved about Tajh Boyd and the Clemson offense, Dabo Sweeney has given just as much praise to the LSU defense. Both teams came in to this season with high expectations after winning their respective conference titles a year ago, and will get a shot at redemption before 2012 is over.

(7) LSU Tigers vs. (14) Clemson Tigers
Monday December 31, 2012 – 7:30 PM ET
Georgia Dome, Atlanta, Georgia
College Football Betting Line: LSU Tigers – 4.5

While the battle between the Clemson offense and LSU defense has garnered much of the national attention, this game could very well come down to whether or not Clemson can slow LSU offense down. LSU averaged close to 30 points and 400 yards in its final four games, and while Clemson defense struggled mightily at times this season.

Miles nearly led his Tigers to an upset of the second-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide before ultimately falling 21-17, a loss that sealed their fate in the SEC following an earlier loss to Florida. LSU rallied with three-straight wins to finish second in the SEC West behind the Crimson Tide, and deserves credit for earning three wins in a span of five-straight weeks against ranked opponents, with the losses to the Gators and Alabama during that stretch. While the defense ranks 11th in the nation in points allowed, the offense came on strong during the final stretch including marked improvement from junior quarterback Zach Mettenberger, who finished with 2,489 yards and 11 scores.

There are plenty of weapons on Sweeney’s offense, with Boyd leading the way for a Tigers’ offense that reached the 37-point mark 10 times this season. Boyd passed for 3,550 yards and 34 touchdowns, and rushed for 492 yards and another nine scores. Running back Andre Ellington finished second in the ACC with 1,031 rushing yards, while DeAndre Hopkins had 1,214 receiving yards and 16 scores en route to a third-team All-American selection. The question is whether these playmakers can rise to the online betting challenge against a top SEC defense, and whether the Clemson defense can do enough to slow LSU down on the other side of the football.

College Football Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

Clemson certainly has the playmakers to make a game out of this one, but it’s hard to go against one of the top teams from the SEC, especially considering LSU has a 5-0 record all-time in the Chick-fil-A Bowl, and has outscored opponents 78-6 in the last two appearances. While these are different teams than in the past, there is something to be said about the SEC’s dominance over other conferences, and if the LSU defense can even slow the Clemson offense, they should be able to at least cover the sports betting spread.
