On ESPN’s College Football Live on Wednesday, ESPN analysts Trevor Matich and David Pollack were asked if they think that the spread for second-ranked Clemson’s game vs. Duke on Saturday at Death Valley is too high or too low. The Tigers are a 28-point favorite.
Matich: “I think that’s a little high. But this game interests me because of all coaches, David Cutcliffe of Duke will know how to scheme problems for a true freshman quarterback, and I’m interested to see how Trevor Lawrence handles it.”
Pollack: “How about that guy Daniel Jones playing QB. That dude is a beast. He’s healthy again. 6-foot-5. Really good in the pocket. I think the weakness of Clemson’s defense is obviously not the defensive line. I think they can make some plays in the passing game. I think that’s too high. I think it will be a 20-point game.”
