Iowa State vs Clemson 12/29/21 Betting Prediction
Iowa State started the season ranked in the top 10 but then lost a couple of games to get to 7-5 and finished the season as a non-ranked side. Their offense is very efficient, averaging 268.8 passing yards per game and 168.6 rushing yards. The Cyclones’ defense allows just 20.6 points per game and it is one of the best in the whole country.
Clemson won’t be part of the postseason for the first time in a long time. Life after Trevor Lawrence is difficult and Clemson are now ranked 103rd in passing yards per game, averaging 191.5 yards. This forced the Tigers to rush the football a lot and they are now averaging 171.3 rushing yards per game. Clemson’s defense, however, is amazing. It is ranked 2nd in the league, allowing just 15 points per game.
Clemson is on a 5-game winning streak that includes a respectable win over Wake Forest a month ago. After Clemson started rushing the football and relying less on their passing game, they look amazing and I believe this is what will win them this game.
