The Clemson Tigers are tough at home where they win by an average of 8.4 points and have a defense that doesn't bend much. However, the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets just beat up on Clemson a week ago and is a team that has had success on the road where they're also 8-4 against the spread. The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets are 19-10 against the spread on the season and 11-6 against the spread in the underdog role. Clemson should be favored, especially on senior night, but Georgia Tech has been kind to us all year in these spots.
