The Clemson Tigers lead the nation in tackles for loss this season

Georgia Tech has won three games in a row, including a 21-10 victory over the Pittsburgh Panthers as 11.5-point home favorites on Nov. 2, while going UNDER the betting total for the first time in five contests.  The Yellow Jackets are bowl eligible for the 17th consecutive year, which is important to consider when making your college football predictions in Week 12.  Offensively, the team is rushing for an average of 311.2 yards per game—an identical number it averaged in 2012.  Georgia Tech is 3-4 SU and 4-3 ATS as underdogs of 3.5 to 10 points the last two-plus seasons, with the UNDER going 4-3 in that situation.

The Yellow Jackets and Tigers have identical cumulative records of 47-24 in ACC play since 2005, which can’t be ignored when looking over the college football betting lines Thursday night.  Georgia Tech is 50-26-2 all-time against Clemson, but it has a losing 6-11 mark when playing at Death Valley, including a 47-31 defeat last year.  It’s important to point out that this program hasn’t won on the road in a Thursday night game since 1998.

Clemson returns home after picking up a pair of road victories over Virginia and Maryland, while going OVER the betting total in three consecutive contests.  The Tigers have won 16 consecutive games against unranked teams by a double-digit margin, which is the second-longest streak of its kind in major college football.  This is the 15th consecutive year that the program has had at least a .500 record in ACC play, while its opponent this week has the longest active streak at 19.  Clemson is 10-1 SU and 9-2 ATS as home favorites of 7.5 to 10 points in its last 11 opportunities, with the UNDER going 6-4-1 in that situation.

The Tigers are ranked 13th in the country in averaging 507.0 yards per game, with senior quarterback Tajh Boyd leading the charge in throwing 20 touchdown passes.  ON the other side of the ball, Clemson leads the way in tallying 9.4 tackles for loss per game, while sitting behind just 22 teams in terms of scoring defense in surrendering just 20.6 points per game.

Sports bettors will likely back the Tigers due to the Yellow Jackets going 0-4 ATS versus teams with a winning record this year.
