The Clemson Tigers and Alabama Crimson Tide opened with matching spreads in their favor for their respective Week 9 games.
The pair of 32.5-point favorites sit in different spots of their schedule going into Saturday. Clemson is one week away from a showdown with the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, while Alabama will play its first game without Jaylen Waddle with a bye week looming.
Although the spread in favor of Clemson seems high, it is nowhere close to where it sat in Week 8. Clemson was a 46.5-point favorite against the Syracuse Orange.
While some attention will be paid to the monster spreads, there is a minimal line that could play in your favor if you select a Top 10 home team.
