Off a 5th straight college football winner have to cut the write-up short on this one due to certain time restraints. Big ACC conference game Saturday features 6th ranked Clemson heading to Bobby Dodd Stadium in a prime time start to take on the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. Georgia Tech is the home underdog here with a 6-2 mark overall and 3-2 conference record after losing back-to-back road games. The Tigers of Clemson come in undefeated at 8-0 overall, 5-0 in conference having played 6 of 8 at home.
These two schools will meet under the bright lights in a 5:00 PM Pacific start on ABC with the Tigers coming in as a -3 -115 road favorite with a posted Total of 62.5 at BetDSI Sportsbook.
Clemson employs an up-tempo style on offense that keeps defenses off-guard and puts a lot of pressure on defenders to adapt, but the Yellow Jackets defense has actually been quite good this season and they rank 18th nationally in pass efficiency defense. The Georgia Tech option offense is what has slowed down, after rolling up a ton of points for the first few weeks they have hit a wall the past three. Ball-possession will be key here for Georgia Tech in order to keep the high-scoring Clemson offense off the field. Yellow Jackets are also capable of the quick-strike offense and can hang with the Tigers. I think home field is huge again, just as it was last week in picking Michigan State over then-undefeated Wisconsin. Clemson has lost their past three visits at Georgia Tech.
I like the dog Georgia Tech here as once again we have a rolling Clemson team full of confidence heading to a difficult location. This is another key conference game and Bobby Dodd Stadium will be rocking Saturday night. I am taking the +3 -105 at BetDSI Sportsbook on the home dog Yellow Jackets.
