Clemson Verses Georgia Tech Free Pick 9/22

Updated: September 21, 2016

Georgia Tech Free Pick

One’s finger does not naturally jump to Clemson Verses Georgia Tech Free Pick as being a key ACC game.  However the status of the Tigers team right now combined with the scheduling oddity makes this a landmine for the #5 team in the nation.  Great to see everyone back here at The Gambling Forum.  Clemson has taken some hits to their national credibility in sliding from #2 to 5 in the polls.  The obvious stated reason for this is not the accurate one.  Find out what their turn weakness is and how it will be exploited by the home underdog Yellow Jackets (3-0) on Thursday the 22 of September starting at 7:30 PM.

Georgia Tech Free Pick : Tigers Offense

Even though they got by a above average team in Auburn on the road 19-13, this Clemson team has been dogged by questions.  Most point towards their offense as being the problem.  True it was not the juggernaut that steam rolled almost everyone last year.  Dropped passes were the biggest problem but that did not occur against their FCS opponent last week.  An improvement here would be nice but it is not their primary weakness.  Their defense will be their demise this year.  True they have had good productivity with some super freshman and others rising through the ranks.  Even with that, the graduations to the NFL the last couple of seasons has dented this squad to much.  It can be overwhelmed in a perfect storm environment.  Bobby Dodd Stadium is their Waterloo this Thursday.

Option Rolling Along

Clemson has not won at Bobby Dodd since 2003.  Venue has not been kind to their quarterback either as Watson racked his knee their as a freshman.  Georgia Tech dismantled Vanderbilt and now looks to this game to forget that horrible last season.  Their option is both producing long runs and sustained drives when needed.  Clemson’s young defense has a short work week to go on the road and make all of these adjustments.  If the Yellow Jackets do not go turnover happy then the Tigers defense has to much to contend with.  Covering a near ten point spread is almost beyond them in this particular situation.

College Free Pick for Thursday, September 22nd is the Yellow Jackets + 9 1/2.  All the stars line up for even a ML upset for those that like the long ball.  Take the prudent route though and use the points.  Close game with us cashing this ticket is what we look forward to this Thursday.  Good fortune to all of us and we will see you next time here at The Gambling Forum.
