Clemson has rattled off six wins in a row, including a 34-20 victory over the Wake Forest Demon Deacons as 20.5-point road favorites last Thursday, while going OVER the betting total for the first time in five affairs.  The Tigers are road favorites in this Atlantic Coast Conference matchup due to the return of dual-threat signal-caller Deshaun Watson, which is important to consider when making your Week 12 college football betting picks, as he’s missed the last three games due to a finger injury on his throwing hand.  Clemson is 9-4 SU and 7-5-1 ATS on the road the last two-plus seasons, with the OVER going 7-6 in that situation.

The Tigers are 27-50-2 SU all-time against the Yellow Jackets, which can’t be ignored when looking over the college football betting lines, but 12 of the last 19 meetings have been decided by five or fewer points.  Clemson has won of the top stop units in the country, especially in the fourth quarter recently, as it has allowed just nine total points and 17 first downs in its last five games in that period of time.

Georgia Tech has won and covered the number in its last three affairs, including a 56-23 victory over the NC State Wolfpack as three-point road favorites last Saturday, while capturing the statistical battle for a sixth consecutive week.  The Yellow Jackets lead the ACC and rank second nationally in averaging 335.6 rushing yards per game, while they pace the entire country with 34 scores on the ground.  Georgia Tech is 4-10 SU and 6-8 ATS as underdogs the last two-plus seasons, with the OVER going 8-6 in that situation.

The Yellow Jackets are tied for the second-longest active streak in the nation in being bowl eligible for a 18th consecutive season, while they’ve finished .500 or better in conference play in 20 straight campaigns.  Georgia Tech has a major offensive playmaker in signal-caller Justin Thomas, who has totaled 1,015 career rushing yards, while being a big reason for the team’s success in third-and-long situations.

Sports bettors will likely back the Yellow Jackets due to the home team being 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings in this series.
