College football odds players would also be well advised to give the Clemson Tigers a second look with the college football lines.
Clemson will host Georgia Tech on Saturday in a rematch of last year’s Atlantic Coast Conference Championship Game. Sports-Gambling opened with Clemson as a 5.5 point home favorite. Kickoff for the ABC telecast is set for 3:30 PM Eastern.
A lot of handicappers and fans were ready to write off Georgia Tech after their embarrassing week two loss at Kansas but since that time the Yellow Jackets have gone 3-1 and have a college football betting record of 5-2 straight up and 3-4 against the spread.
The Ramblin Wreck has gone over the total in 5 games this year. Last week Tech beat Middle Tennessee 42-14 for an easy payout as 18.5 point home favorites. Quarterback Josh Nesbitt continues to be the man that makes the Ramblin Wreck go as he leads the team in rushing with 649 yards and in touchdowns with 8.
Tech is just a half a game behind Virginia Tech in the Coastal Division race. Tech ranks 2nd in the country for rushing and 41st for scoring offense while ranking 44th in total defense.
The Clemson Tigers made a strong college football gambling statement last week that they are not about to fold their tents as they destroyed Maryland 31-7 to snap a 3 games losing streak and improve to 4-3 straight up and 2-4 against the spread with 4 of their games going under the total.
Defense has made Clemson competitive as they rank 29th for points allowed while ranking 45th in scoring offense. Andre Ellington has rushed for 476 yards as he has done a credible job in taking CJ Spiller’s spot.
Clemson has a great opportunity for a revenge win in this one but Nesbitt and Tech have the hot hand and can smell the chance to get back into the ACC title game.
Georgia Tech has paid out in 7 out of their last 9 road games. In this head to head series the road team has beaten the college football odds in 9 out of the last 12 meetings with the dog covering 13 out of the last 16 between the teams.
