Fade Clemson, beware Georgia-Alabama spread


Clemson Tigers at Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (-27/64) at BetRivers | Matchup Report

The Tigers snapped a four-game against the spread losing streak last week. Now they’ll face a Yellow Jackets squad coming off an upset win over Louisville. The key number her is the 27-point spread that Clemson is facing.

If you’re simply picking the winner here, Clemson is a no-brainer. If you’re betting the spread, we’ll go with Georgia Tech. When facing a spread of 27 points or higher the Tigers are 6-0 in their last six games, but only 2-4 ATS. In their last seven games as an underdog Georgia Tech is 4-3 ATS. We expect the Yellow Jackets to pull out another ATS win as +27 underdogs.

Kentucky Wildcats at Tennessee Volunteers (-6.5/49.5) at BetRivers | Matchup Report

This looks like a solid Under play for total bettors. Neither side boasts a great offense, with Kentucky ranking 10th in the SEC and Tennessee ranking 11th. They do both boast Top 5 defenses, with Kentucky at No. 4 and Tennessee slotting in at No. 5.

On the road Kentucky has gone 4-1 Under in their last five and 8-2 Under in their last 10. The Wildcats are also 14-4 Under in their last 18 conference games. Tennessee is 6-2 Under in their last eight games, and in their last nine home games against Kentucky the Under is 5-3-1. Take the Under on the 49.5 total.

Georgia Bulldogs at Alabama Crimson Tide (-7.5/57.5) at BetRivers | Matchup Report 

Alert: This line has moved up to -4.5 for Bama, so bet accordingly.

Is this finally the year Georgia gets the best of Alabama after losing to them in five straight? We think so. The Bulldogs head into this week with six straight road wins and a 5-1 ATS record. We know that Alabama is 30-0 SU in their last 30 home games, but they’re also 17-13 ATS. The trend that really sticks out for us is that Georgia has won their last two games in Alabama SU.

We won’t guarantee that they make that three in a row this weekend, but we are putting our money on them as a 7.5-point underdog.
