After 3 straight losses, Georgia Tech could use some good luck. It doesn’t appear that they’ll get any good luck this Saturday because the Yellow Jackets have to travel to South Carolina to take on Clemson in Death Valley.
Clemson hung on for a spirited 24 to 22 win over previously undefeated Notre Dame in their last game. The Tigers are going to have to be careful about not suffering a letdown versus Georgia Tech. Georgia Tech is just hoping to win a game after losing 31 to 38 to North Carolina in their last. The Yellow Jackets are in desperate need for a win. They lost 22 to 30 to Notre Dame and 20 to 34 to Duke before losing to North Carolina.

Why Bet On Georgia Tech to Beat #6 Clemson (-7)
Since last season he Yellow Jackets are 7-3 on road while the Tigers are 3-3 at home.
Even with the losses, the Georgia Tech rushing attack has been in good form. The Yellow Jackets continue to dominate opponents on the ground. Georgia Tech is averaging 311.8 rushing yards per game. The offense averages only 438.8 yards per game, proving how important the run game is to the Yellow Jackets.
It’s imperative for Georgia Tech to get their running game going. If they don’t, they often times won’t get close to winning a game. The big question is how Georgia Tech’s rushing attack will fare against Clemson’s D. Clemson’s defense is allowing 115.2 yards per game on the ground. The Tigers allow teams to pass for yards so that they can shut down the run.
In last year’s game, Georgia Tech won 28 to 6. The Yellow Jackets rushed for 251 yards from 50 carries. They averaged 5 yards per carry. If Georgia Tech can do that to Clemson on Saturday, they might upset the team that plays in Death Valley.
Why Bet On #6 Clemson (-7) to Beat Georgia Tech
Clemson’s win over Notre Dame last week gave the Tigers the best resume in the ACC.
Sixth ranked Clemson has a very good defense. Since Coach Dabo Sweeney came to Clemson, the Tigers have been known as a defensive first squad. The Tigers are very good at stopping the run and keeping opposing teams from scoring touchdowns against them.
But if Clemson is to win this matchup against Georgia Tech, it’s their offense that will have to step it up. Georgia Tech is a very good football team. The Yellow Jackets can really run the football. More importantly in regards to this game, Georgia Tech rushed for over 250 yards last season while playing against Vic Beasley and Stephone Anthony. Both of those guys are playing in the NFL. Anthony runs the New Orleans Saints’ defense.

This should be a very close game. The 7 points makes Georgia Tech the pick even though Clemson should win this one straight up. My final score prediction is Clemson 34, Georgia Tech 31.
