Clemson vs Georgia Tech CFB Betting PredictionClemson Tigers

(3-0, 1-2 ATS)

Clemson is fresh off a 59-0 thrashing of South Carolina State in which they scored 45 points in the 1st half.  It seemed as if they took out their frustrations on the Bulldogs.  Coaches on both sides agreed to shorten the 2nd half by 6 minutes.  South Carolina State took their check and promptly left Clemson.

QB DeShaun Watson entered the 2016 season as a Heisman Trophy frontrunner.  However, the Clemson quarterback has not played up to expectations thus far.  Watson has completed just 56.9 percent of his passes for 692 yards with 7 TD’s and 3 picks.

Watson threw for 265 yards and a pair of touchdowns in last years win over the Yellow Jackets.

Clemson will face a tough test against a Georgia Tech team that runs the triple option.  The Tigers can not look past this Yellow Jackets team towards a date with Louisville that awaits the Tigers in Week 5.

(3-0, 1-0-1 ATS)

Georgia Tech heads into this Thursday night matchup fresh off a 38-7 victory over Vanderbilt in Week 3 to improve to 3-0.  Georgia Tech improved to 12-0-1 vs the Commodores since 1941.  Now the Yellow Jackets face a stiffer test vs the #3 Clemson Tigers.

Georgia Tech’s offense is known for its ground game and Paul Johnson‘s triple-option offense.  Johnson threw Vanderbilt a curveball last week as the Yellow Jackets opened up with an 81-yard touchdown pass from Justin Thomas to Marcus Marshall in the first play of the game.

On the season, Thomas has completed just 50 percent of his passes for 335 yards and a TD. He does lead Georgia Tech in rushing with 169 yards and one TD.

Georgia Tech knows they’ll need big plays and momentum switchers to have success vs the Tigers on Thursday night.

What is Dennis Mathews Predicting?
Clemson does not seem as polished as last season, on both sides of the ball.  The Tigers are playing uninspired football and it’s a concerning thought from a betting perspective.  On paper, the Tigers are the better football team and we are just waiting for them to breakout. However, with Lamar Jackson and the Louisville Cardinals looming in the background it feels like a trap game for the Tigers.
Clemson is just 4-10 ATS last 14 conference games and 2-7 ATS their last 9 road games.  The Yellow Jackets are 7-2 ATS last 9 games following an ATS win and the home team is 6-0 ATS last 6 in this series.
I like Georgia Tech to hang around and cover the +8.5 point spread.  Expect Clemson to win this game but not in convincing fashion as they are not the same team as they were in 2015.

Clemson vs Georgia Tech CFB Betting Prediction: Georgia Tech +8.5
