Clemson -10.5 vs. Georgia Tech

No. 24 Clemson is a pretty big favorite tonight at 10.5 points, according to BetOnline.

The Tigers beat the Yellow Jackets by 13 points down in Atlanta on Dec. 21 so there might be some value on this line with Clemson.

Some of that depends on the status of Chase Hunter, the Clemson guard who's dealing with a foot injury. No update has been given on whether he'll play or not. Check back closer to game time for info.

If he's out, Clemson might have more trouble scoring, although GT ranks 215th nationally in points allowed per game.

Also worth noting, GT ranks outside the top 290 in FG% while the Tigers are inside the top 25 in FG% defense.

It's probably best to know the status of Hunter (and maybe guard Alex Hemenway as well) before making a play. I think I'd lay off of it if Hunter is out just because Clemson hasn't flowed as well offensively since his injury and even though Georgia Tech is bad, it might be hard to cover double digits.
