Auburn is currently a 7.5-point underdog for its season-opener. And apparently, people really like Clemson and the points.
Per David Payne Purdum of ESPN, the most bet on matchup of week 1 is the game between Clemson and Auburn. Clemson comes in ranked No. 2 in the country and returns Heisman Trophy finalist Deshaun Watson. Auburn is coming off a 7-6 season. It recently named Sean White the starter for the game against Clemson.

Per Purdum, most of the money is being bet on Clemson to cover the spread. The game is being played at Auburn, which is why the line is lower than it might normally be.
The two teams last met in 2012, with Clemson winning 26-19. The last time these two teams met in Auburn, Auburn came away victorious 27-24. The two Tigers are scheduled to kickoff on Sept. 3 at 9 p.m.
