Clemson vs Kentucky Preview & Picks

Clemson are tipped to cover in a Gator Bowl victory.

The Tigers ended the regular season on a roll, and the defense can slow down a Kentucky offense without its biggest weapon.

  • Clemson are on a 4-game win streak
  • Clemson are 4-0-0 ATS in their last 4 games
  • Kentucky are 2-5 in their last 7 games
  • The Under has cashed in 6 of Clemson’s last 9 games

Head To Head

  • Kentucky lead the all-time series 8-5
  • Clemson won 21-13 when the two teams last met in December 2009

Clemson Form

Clemson rallied late in the regular season to win their final four games and finish with an 8-4 record.

The Tigers split their first four games of the season, but responded to a heart-breaking 31-24 loss to #4 Florida State with back-to-back wins.

However, they dropped their next two ACC games, 28-20 in Miami and 24-17 at NC State, and that heaped pressure on head coach Dabo Swinney.

Clemson quickly took some of the heat off him though, upsetting #12 Notre Dame 31-12 at home, and they backed up that victory with a 42-21 win over Georgia Tech.

The Tigers then knocked off #22 North Carolina, 31-20, before heading out on the road to edge South Carolina, 16-7, in their regular season finale.

Kentucky Form

Kentucky head to the Gator Bowl on the back of an impressive win that secured a 7-5 record for them.

The Wildcats raced out of the blocks with a run of five straight wins, but when the schedule got tougher their form cooled off.

Their 33-14 upset of #22 Florida was followed by a 51-13 blowout loss to #1 Georgia, and they then suffered a 38-21 defeat to Missouri that knocked them back out of the rankings.

Kentucky’s skid hit three games with a 33-27 loss to #21 Tennessee, and although they then beat Mississippi State, 24-3, they soon returned to losing ways.

The Wildcats were beaten 49-21 at #8 Alabama and 38-31 in South Carolina, but they were able to wrap up their schedule on a positive note, beating #9 Louisville 38-31.

Verdict

Louisville ended the regular season with an impressive win, but losing Ray Davis is a massive blow.

Clemson’s defense is tipped to produce another strong performance that leads the Tigers to victory and a cover.
