Clemson vs Georgia Tech College Football Picks, College Football Odds & College Football Predictions: The Clemson Tigers are in Atlanta tonight to kickoff conference play against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. Both teams enter this evening's game with a 1-0 record after relatively easy non-conference tune ups last weekend. Clemson vs Georgia Tech College Football Picks at Sportsbetting.com have the Jackets listed as a -5 against the spread favorite in tonight's ACC clash.
The Clemson Tigers got the official Dabo Swinney era off to a good start last Saturday, pasting Sun Belt squad Middle Tennessee State 37-14. The Tigers most dynamic player, running back C.J. Spiller, got things started with a bang, returning the opening kick 96 yards for a score. Spiller also had a 50 yard punt return in the first half, but did not see action in the second half after Clemson built a 30-7 halftime lead.
The Tigers new quarterback, freshman Kyle Parker, did a nice job filling in for the departed Cullen Harper. Parker completed 9-of-20 passes for 159 yards and two touchdowns.
Clemson's defense limited the Blue Raiders to 299 total yards and just 92 rushing (2.5 yards per carry). They will get a much stiffer challenge from Paul Johnson's Ramblin' Wreck ground attack this evening.
The No. 15 Yellow Jackets had a start similar to the Tigers, beating FCS school Jacksonville State 37-17. Star running back Jonathan Dwyer wasted no time putting a dent in the Gamecocks defense as he ran 74 yards for a touchdown on Tech's first play from scrimmage. Dwyer cruised the rest of the day, rushing just six more times for 21 yards and another score.
The Yellow Jackets had 497 yards for the game and racked up 335 on the ground (6.7 yards per carry).
The only point of concern for Tech were two first half fumbles; however, inspite of the lack of ball security, Johnson's defense limited any damage by allowing Jacksonville State just 193 yards for the game.
This evening's game is scheduled to get underway at 7:30pm ET at Bobby Dodd Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. It will be televised live on ESPN.
Clemson Tigers +5 (-105), Over 43 (-110), +180 (Moneyline)
Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets -5 (-115), Under 43 (-110), -220 (Moneyline)
