Prior to the year, people wondered how games would be altered by lack of fans during the coronavirus pandemic. Would underdogs have a better chance? Would road teams have an edge? Well, here's what we have seen thus far: There have been 51 FBS vs. FBS games where a team has been favored by double digits. Underdogs are 34-17 against the spread and have 11 outright wins!
Home teams are 44-45 ATS in FBS vs. FBS games, so there has been very little, if any home-field edge -- especially for favorites. Home underdogs are 22-11 ATS with eight outright wins.
Florida State at Notre Dame
-- This is the first time Florida State is a double-digit underdog vs. two straight FBS opponents.
-- In its past five games as a double-digit underdog, Florida State hasn't covered any of the five and lost by an average of 34.8 PPG. FSU has been outscored 238-64 in those five games.
-- From 1978 through Nov. 4, 2017, Florida State was a double-digit underdog 10 times in 497 games. This will be the eighth time in 34 games since Nov. 11, 2017 that FSU is a double-digit dog.
Miami at Clemson
-- Clemson is currently a 14-point favorite over Miami. The last time Clemson closed as low as a 14-point favorite at home was in 2017, when the Tigers beat Georgia Tech 24-10 as a 14-point favorite. The last time the Tigers closed as less than a 14-point favorite was in 2017 versus Auburn, when Clemson won 14-6 as a six-point favorite. And the last time Clemson closed less than a 14-point favorite in an ACC game was the 2016 Louisville game, which was won by Clemson 42-36 as a one-point dog.
-- There have been 10 top-seven regular-season matchups with a spread of at least 14 points. Underdogs are 6-3-1 ATS in those 10 games. The largest upset is Tennessee's win at Florida in 2001 as a 17.5-point favorite.
Oklahoma vs. Texas
-- The last time Oklahoma was favored by less than 7.5 points vs Texas was 2012 when the Sooners won 63-21 vs the Longhorns as a 3.5-point favorite.
-- This would be the 12th straight year Texas is an underdog vs Oklahoma. The Longhorns are 7-1 ATS with three outright win in the last eight meetings.
Tennessee at Georgia
- Tennessee is 6-19-1 ATS in its last 26 games vs Top 10 opponents. The Vols have lost 33 straight vs Top 10 opponents dating back to a 2006 win vs Georgia. The 33 losses have been by an average of 25.9 PPG. Only six have been decided by single digits.
