The Clemson Tigers and Miami Hurricanes meet Wednesday in college basketball action at the Watsco Center.

The Clemson Tigers look for another win to build on their four-game winning streak. The Clemson Tigers are averaging 70.4 points on 46.9 percent shooting and allowing 64 points on 41.1 percent shooting. Marcquise Reed is averaging 18.9 points and 3.3 assists while Elijah Thomas is averaging 12.9 points and 7.8 rebounds. Shelton Mitchell is the third double-digit scorer and Aamir Simms is grabbing 4.4 rebounds. The Clemson Tigers are shooting 32.7 percent from beyond the arc and 72 percent from the free throw line. The Clemson Tigers are allowing 35.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 32.3 rebounds per game. The Clemson Tigers have lost four of their last five road games.

The Miami Hurricanes could use a win here after losing nine of their last 11 games. The Miami Hurricanes are averaging 73.1 points on 44.6 percent shooting and allowing 70.9 points on 44.7 percent shooting. Chris Lykes is averaging 16.9 points and 3.3 assists while Zach Johnson is averaging 13.1 points and 3.1 rebounds. Anthony Lawrence II is the third double-digit scorer and Dejan Vasiljevic is grabbing 4.6 rebounds. The Miami Hurricanes are shooting 34.4 percent from beyond the arc and 72.4 percent from the free throw line. The Miami Hurricanes are allowing 34.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 30.9 rebounds per game. The Miami Hurricanes have lost four of their last six home games.

The Tigers are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a ATS win, 5-0 ATS in their last 5 vs. Atlantic Coast and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Hurricanes are 8-21 ATS in their last 29 games following a ATS win, 16-36 ATS in their last 52 home games and 6-13 ATS in their last 19 games overall. The Tigers are 7-2-1 ATS in the last 10 meetings and the favorite is 3-1-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings. The under is 4-1 in Tigers last 5 overall. The under is 16-5 in Hurricanes last 21 home games.

The home team has won each of the last six meetings between Clemson and Miami, and eight of the last 10 meetings overall. The Miami Hurricanes are in a complete mess right now, and while they're winning at home by an average of 6.9 points, they've lost four of their last six at home overall. The Clemson Tigers have won four straight and are holding teams to just 53.6 points on 34.4 percent shooting in their last five games. Clemson and Miami are heading in completely different directions. I have no choice but to lay the bucket with the Clemson Tigers on the road.
