NCAA Football Odds: Pick Clemson +1

football sports bettingThe Georgia Tech vs Clemson betting odds sets us up for the ACC Championship in a rematch of a game played earlier this year. The first matchup took place at Georgia Tech, where the Yellow Jackets squeaked by with a three-point win. This time around will be different, as the Tigers will exploit a defense that online betting cappers saw get pillaged last week.

WHERE: Raymond James Stadium – Tampa, FL

Georgia Tech vs Clemson betting odds maker breakdown: What’s On The Line
Georgia Tech (10-2, 7-1) has had a phenomenal turnaround in just two years under Paul Johnson. Some people wondered whether the option would work at a major conference, and clearly it does. One more win puts the Yellow Jackets in the Orange Bowl, which would be a huge accomplishment for them. They played poorly last week at home against rival Georgia, so they’ll look to bounce back this week.

Meanwhile, Clemson (8-4, 6-2) has also had a banner year after so many disappointing ones under Tommy Bowden. Dabo Swinney has milked eight wins out of this squad, and he’s laying the foundation for the future. A BCS bowl berth would be huge for him in his first year, but the Tigers are also coming off a disappointing loss to their rivals in South Carolina.

Georgia Tech vs Clemson betting odds maker breakdown: Offense
The Yellow Jackets option offense is about as good as it gets, but it does come with a caveat: the passing game isn’t great. Quarterback Josh Nesbitt is now working on a somewhat sprained ankle, but really, when the team needed him to make some throws for the comeback, he wasn’t capable. The running game is awesome, but the Yellow Jackets have to make sure they never fall behind too much. NCAA football betting fans know that if you force them to pass, you have a great shot to win.

Clemson’s offense also hit the wall last week, but generally speaking, they’re more balanced than Georgia Tech. Running back C.J. Spiller is a Heisman candidate, while freshman quarterback Kyle Parker keeps getting better with each week. Throw in track star Jacoby Ford at wide receiver and you have the makings of a good offense. Look for them to pound the Tech defense on the ground, which gave up 339 yards rushing to Georgia last week.

Georgia Tech vs Clemson betting odds maker breakdown: Defense
The Yellow Jackets defense has been brutal the last few weeks, including a horrible effort against Georgia. The Yellow Jackets gave up 339 rushing yards last week and had a 7.7 yards per carry average. This is a defense that gave up 27 to Wake Forest, 31 to Vanderbilt, 44 to Florida State, 31 to Mississippi State, and 30 to Georgia. They better tighten things up this week or they’re in trouble.

For Clemson, the sportsbook odds makers aren’t giving them the edge, but they clearly do have it on defense. The Tigers don’t have a suffocating unit but they have been much more reliable. During their six-game winning streak, the Tigers allowed just 20 points per game.

Betting Edge: Clemson

Georgia Tech vs Clemson betting odds maker breakdown: Notable Injuries
Both teams are fairly healthy but keep an eye on Josh Nesbitt’s ankle. He came back and played on it last week and will play this week, but it may limit him a little bit.

Betting Edge: Even

Georgia Tech vs Clemson betting odds breakdown: Outlook and Pick
Both teams are coming off disappointing losses, but the Yellow Jackets’ loss at home tells us more than Clemson’s ugly loss in South Carolina. The Yellow Jackets run defense was exposed, and the Tigers will watch the film and duplicate Georgia’s performance. Expect a big day on the ground from Spiller as the Tigers win and head to the Orange Bowl.

BLAKE’S PICK: Clemson +1
