Tigers at Hokies OddsShark Matchup Report

Clemson Tigers

The Tigers put together another dominant performance on defense last Saturday, holding Boston College to just 238 yards en route to a 34-7 victory at home.

The offense had an off day with just seven points through the first three quarters, but the game never really felt as close as it was on the scoreboard. Still, the Tigers won’t be able to afford such a slow start this week against a much more dangerous opponent.

With 11 straight road wins, this Clemson team has established itself as a road warrior. The Tigers are 7-0 SU and 5-2 ATS in their last seven road games against teams with winning records.

Virginia Tech Hokies

The Hokies enter Saturday night’s game with a 7-1 SU and ATS record over their last eight games. The only outright loss over that stretch was to Clemson last season, but the Hokies pushed the Tigers to the brink in that one and covered the spread in a 42-35 loss.

With the venue switched to Lane Stadium, Virginia Tech hopes to get the job done this time around. Virginia Tech is 8-2 ATS in its last 10 games as a home underdog with five outright upsets.

Saturday night’s total is set at 51.5 points. The UNDER is 6-2 in the last eight games between these two teams according to the OddsShark College Football Database.

This is a huge game for both of these teams. A win for Clemson would secure the Tigers’ spot among the nation’s elite and give the team a stranglehold on a College Football Playoff spot just a month into the regular season. For Virginia Tech, a win would accelerate Head Coach Justin Fuente’s rebuild and announce the Hokies as a legitimate threat to win the ACC.
