The Yellow Jackets are 5-11-2 ATS in their last 18 games in October and 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games overall. The Tigers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 0-6 ATS in their last 6 conference games. The underdog is 15-6 ATS in their last 21 meetings.
While I'm worried about this being a letdown spot for Clemson, Georgia Tech simply isn't the team I thought it was heading into the season. Also, Clemson doesn't have to leave its home field, which does help in a letdown spot. These teams are simply heading in different directions, and I don't have a problem laying the touchdown here.
