Georgia Tech Preview

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets are 8-8 (1-4) this season after they lost to Duke by a score of 84-79 in their last game. Georgia Tech was tied at 39 at halftime, but they allowed 45 points in the second half for the loss. The Yellow Jackets shot 54.5% from the field and made 11 three pointers in the game. Georgia Tech has also lost to Notre Dame, Boston College, Florida State, and Nevada during this losing streak. The Yellow Jackets are scoring 72.8 points per game with 39.9 rebounds per game and 13.8 assists per game, while giving up 74.3 points against per game this year. Miles Kelly is averaging 15.6 points per game, 6.2 rebounds per game, and 2.1 assists per game. Georgia Tech is shooting 42.7% from the field, 65.8% on free throws, and 30.9% on three pointers this season. Georgia will play against Virginia and Pittsburgh after this game. 

Clemson Preview

The Clemson Tigers are 12-4 (2-3) this year after they defeated Boston College by a score of 89-78 in their last game. Clemson led 44-35 at halftime and added 45 points in the second half in the win. The Tigers are scoring 54.2% from the field and were +15 in rebounding margin in the game. Clemson lost their previous three games against Virginia Tech, North Carolina, and Miami.

PJ Hall is averaging 19.4 points per game, 6.5 rebounds per game, and 2.1 blocks per game. Clemson is shooting 48.5% from the field, 76.6% on free throws, and 37% on three pointers this year. 

Georgia Tech vs Clemson Betting Prediction

The Yellow Jackets come into this game on a five game losing streak, but they nearly beat Duke in their last game and lost in overtime in the game prior to that. Clemson snapped their losing streak with a win against BC last time out and they are scoring over 80 points per game this year. The Tigers are shooting 48.5% from the field, while Georgia Tech is shooting 42.7% from the field. Clemson should have the advantage at home, but I like Georgia Tech with the points. Georgia Tech hasn’t lost by 12 points at all during this losing streak and Clemson hasn’t been very good recently. Take GT with the points.
