Georgia Tech struggled against Notre Dame, however, the Yellow Jackets have played better overall as of late as they were competitive their three previous games against Virginia Tech, Syracuse, & Pittsburgh in which they all covered ATS. Clemson is coming off back-to-back wins, including an impressive win against Wake Forest, however, this is still a team that lost 10 of their previous 12 games, and as Georgia Tech was able to defeat Clemson by a 69-64 margin at home, I think the Yellow Jackets will be able to keep this one competitive enough to cover with the double-digit points. Good Luck!
