The Golden Nugget Las Vegas has released early point spreads for a number of college football matchups in 2014, including nine involving Clemson.

The Tigers are favored in half a dozen of those games - including all three in a pivotal three-game homestand bridging September and October - but represent the underdog against their three highest-profile opponents of the season.

Without further adieu, and presented without comment (for now, anyway), here they are:

Aug. 30 Clemson at Georgia (-9)

Sept. 20 Clemson at Florida State (-17)

Sept. 27 North Carolina at Clemson (-4)

Oct. 4 NC State at Clemson (-23)

Oct. 11 Louisville at Clemson (-10)

Oct. 18 Clemson (-18) at Boston College

Nov. 6 Clemson (-20) at Wake Forest

Nov. 15 Clemson (-6) at Georgia Tech

Nov. 29 South Carolina (-3) at Clemson

By the way, defending national champion Florida State is more than a two-touchdown favorite in every game listed.
