Clemson is a favorite over Tennessee in the Orange Bowl. Initially, the Tigers opened as 2.5-point favorites, but opt outs and coaching changes quickly moved this line. The over/under is set at points.

Notably, offensive coordinator Alex Golesh took the USF head coaching job. Biletnikoff Award winner Jalin Hyatt said he will not play in the bowl game while would-be Heisman finalist Hendon Hooker is not playing after suffering a torn ACL in Week 12. Star receiver Cedric Tillman also opted out of the bowl to enter the NFL Draft. Other potential opt outs may be incoming.

Clemson on the other hand is entering a new era. Cade Klubnik overtook DJ Uiagalelei in the ACC Championship Game, completing 83% of his passes for 279 yards. DJ U entered the transfer portal, officially handing the keys to Klubnik, who will be a preseason Heisman favorite. The offense moved much more effectively under the true freshman. The Tigers will be without star pass rusher Myles Murphy, who declared for the NFL Draft.

Linebacker Trenton Simpson wasn’t scheduled to play in this game with an injury suffered in the ACC Championship Game, but he declared for the draft as well.

With a 13-year postseason coaching experience advantage and four full points of market movement (and counting), most factors point to a Clemson cover here.

Notable Opt Outs

Tennessee: WR Cedric Tillman, WR Jalin Hyatt, OT Darnell Wright, EDGE Byron Young, LB Jeremy Banks

Clemson: QB DJ Uiagalelei, DE Myles Murphy, LB Trenton Simpson, RB Kobe Pace, DB Fred Davis, WR EJ Williams

Orange Bowl betting

Last year, the Orange Bowl was a CFP semifinal matchup between No. 2 Michigan and No. 3 Georgia. The Bulldogs were 7.5-point favorites in the game and it had an over/under of 46.5 points. Georgia would go on to cover and win 34-11 behind a historic defense; the under hit in this game by just 1.5 points.

Most surprising was the efficiency of the Georgia offense, led by Stetson Bennett. They out-gained Michigan 7.9-5.2 on a per-play basis and, as a team, threw four touchdowns. Georgia also controlled the game far more than the final score indicated, jumping out to a 27-3 lead heading into the fourth quarter when Michigan scored a garbage time touchdown to get on the board.

Star running back Hassan Haskins, who just rushed for five touchdowns on Ohio State the week before, was held to nine carries and 39 yards. Georgia would advance and win their first National Championship since 1980.

Previous Years

The last two Orange Bowls featured favorites comfortably covering their spreads, with Texas A&M (-7.5) beating North Carolina 41-27 in the 2021 edition of the game. That game went over the point total, which was set at 65.5.

But before then, underdogs reigned king of covering in the game. From 2013-2019, underdogs covered five of six spreads, the exception being 2018 Wisconsin (-6.5) over Miami 34-24. Overs are 6-3 in the last nine games.
