The Yellow Jackets are 1-0-1 with the under in their two lined games and they have pushed or hit the under in six of their last seven lined totals. Like Clemson, Tech has been about defense, allowing 10.3 points and 305 yards per game. The offense is putting up 30 points and 397 yards per game. Tech has a great ground game, putting up 257.3 yards per game, but they face a Clemson defense that is giving up just 92 yards per game.
The Yellow Jackets and Tigers should have a physical battle tonight. Despite both offenses being able to move the ball, they are running up against some really strong defenses tonight. Tech isn’t likely to run the ball too effectively while Clemson’s passing attack faces a stingy Tech secondary. Getting to 59 points will be tough in this one, feel good about playing the under.
