The #10 Virginia Tech Hokies pay a visit to the Clemson Tigers on Saturday in ACC college basketball.

The #10 Virginia Tech Hokies saw their three game winning streak end in a 72-64 loss to visiting Louisville on Monday as a five point favorite.

Virginia Tech fell behind by five points at the break and couldn’t get enough second half stops with Louisville holding a small 45.3%-44.4^ shooting edge and going 13-27 from distance.

Kerry Blackshear Jr. kept the Hokies in the game with 21 points and five pulls while Nickeil Alexander-Walker adding 17 points, four yaks and four helpers.

Virginia Tech received 12 points and seven rebounds from Ty Outlaw followed by Ahmed Hill with nine points and three yanks.

The Clemson Tigers have won three in a row after downing Georgia Tech 65-42 on the road Wednesday as a 3.5 point favorite.

Clemson was up nine points after 20 minutes and put this out of reach with just 18 second half points allowed behind a 49%-30% shooting edge.

Marquise Reed was the Tigers main weapon with 19 points and three yanks while David Skara adding 13 points, eight rebounds and four helpers.

Clemson saw another 13 points and five pulls from Aamir Simms followed by Shelton Mitchell and Elijah Thomas with a combined 15 points and eleven rebounds.

Virginia Tech Hokies are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games vs. a team with a winning straight up record and Virginia Tech Hokies are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss. 

Clemson Tigers are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall and Clemson Tigers are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 vs. Atlantic Coast. 

Over is 6-1-1 in the last 8 meetings in Clemson and Virginia Tech Hokies are 7-2 ATS in the last 9 meetings in Clemson.

Personally I think the Hokies are a bit over rated and they can prove me right here…

Pick:
Clemson -2

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
