XX% of sports bets are currently on Clemson to win as (TBD) underdogs.

The Tigers are ranked third in this week’s coaches poll and second in the initial College Football Playoff rankings after surviving another close call last week. Clemson’s 37-34 victory at Florida State on Saturday was its fifth win this season by seven points or fewer.

The upset-minded Orange are coming off a week off following a two-game win streak that included a 31-17 home win over then-No. 19 Virginia Tech and a 28-20 win at Boston College.

The Orange boast one of the nation’s most improved offenses, averaging 487 total yards behind the prolific passing duo of quarterback Eric Dungey and receiver Amba Etta-Tawo. Syracuse averages 45 pass attempts per game, with Dungey completing 65 percent of his passes for an average of 329 yards per game and Etta-Tawo ranking third nationally with 134 receiving yards per contest.

The Tigers have been somewhat inconsistent in their ability to run the ball, though Wayne Gallman put up 82 yards and two touchdowns in a solid effort at Florida State. Gallman, Watson and Co. should be able to exploit a Syracuse defense that gives up 450.8 yards per game and hasn’t had much success stopping the run or the pass.

The Tigers have outscored opponents 86-6 in the first quarter and 167-43 in the first half.
