2018 College Football Lines: Clemson A 12-Point Favorite Over Host Texas A&M

The time has come for Jimbo Fisher to earn his keep as Texas A&M's head coach. The Aggies host a loaded Clemson that brings back quarterback Kelly Bryant among its ranks. What do the college football lines reflect for this game? Find out below...

Why Bet on Clemson?

When you look back at NCAA football's rich history of producing some of the best players this sport has seen, you'll find a handful of programs consistently at the top of the chain. But, among those, the Clemson Tigers standout as a staple of competition through all the system's history.

Clemson returns this year with much of the talent that spearheaded last year's success but also brings on some young blood to replace key positions of players that have left. Among these, new QB Trevor Lawrence stands out in the eyes of fans as he went out to throw 3 TDs in the Tigers' 48-7 win over the Furman Paladins.

Lawrence will likely be sharing his time on the field with Kelly Bryant under center, a combination that could be lethal against Texas A&M.

The Tigers don't seem to suffer on the road either, where they've collected a whopping 18-1 straight up wins over their last 19 road games. This also isn't head coach Dabo Swinney's first rodeo in Texas, except, this time around he's probably looking to avoid (getting) “destroyed out there.”

Swinney now heads the No. 2 Clemson Tigers, a team he's turned through blood, sweat, and tears into a well-oiled machine. Clemson is the deserved 12-point favorite to win this game.

Why Bet on Texas A&M?

Jimbo Fisher was in the spotlight last week in the Aggies' season opener. And, he didn't disappoint. A&M went on to crush Northwestern State with a 59-7 win. Even if there weren't many folks who had a doubt they were going to win, they made a point out of it, one that even beat the 46 ½ point spread.

But, there's no time to celebrate in this early in the competition. His next opponents have a massive bite, and they'll be looking to chew up and spit out whatever Fisher throws at them.

The Aggies face perhaps their toughest opponent in a Clemson Tigers team that will be relentless on both sides of the ball. Even if they can get the offense to do everything right, which would give them a good shot at staying in the game, it's going to be hard to stop the Tigers' one-two punch of Lawrence and Bryant.
