The Clemson Tigers (16-15, CONF 10-11) and Florida State Seminoles (26-5, CONF 16-4)face off in the ACC Tournament at the Greensboro Coliseum. The home team won the two matchups between Clemson and Florida State this year. 

Clemson hasn't had the best season but it’s tournament time and anything can happen going forward. In the first round of the ACC tournament, Clemson played Miami and it wasn’t the prettiest ganem but they did enough to come away with a 69-64 victory.

Before the first game of the ACC tournament, Clemson had lost three of the four games, including a really bad loss to Georgia Tech.

The strength of Clemson isn’t the offense and away from home this season they are averaging only 60.6 points per game. 

Clemson is led by Aamir Simmons who is averaging 13 points per game while shooting 47 percent from the field. In each of the last four games he hasn’t scored more than 14 points and they need him to be good in this game. 

Florida State is playing for a one seed, and losing this game would probably eliminate any chance of that happening. 

Over the last five games, Florida State is averaging 74.2 points per game while the defense is giving up 66.2 points. Florida State is led by guard Devin Vassell who is averaging 12.7 points while shooting 49 percent from the field. In the Seminoles last game Vassell only scored five points and they need him to be better in this game.

The over is 8-2 in Clemson’s last ten games played on Thursday. The over is 10-3 in Florida State’s last 13 games as a favorite. The over is 10-4 in Florida State’s last 14 games overall. The over is 9-4 in Clemson’s last 13 neutral site games. The over is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings between Clemson and Florida State.

Overall Clemson’s offense hasn’t been good, and that is going to be their letdown in this game. Look for Florida State to run up the score and that will be enough for them to win the game and cover the spread.
