The Virginia Tech Hokies are 9-5 (1-2) this season after they lost to Florida State by a score of 77-74 in their last game.

Clemson vs Virginia Tech Betting Prediction

Both of these teams come into this game on a two game losing streak, but Virginia Tech has the home court advantage for this matchup. The Hokies have allowed 77 and 86 points in their last two games, but they have been pretty good defensively prior to that. Clemson is scoring 80.3 points per game and they are shooting 48.4% from the field, but they played really poorly in the second half of their last game. I think this game could go either way, but I am going to ride with the home team here. Take the Hokies.
