Clemson Tigers vs Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets prediction

Clemson is obviously the better team and should be favored, but Georgia Tech beat the Tigers on the road last month in overtime, and now they're at home where they've played their best ball. Clemson has had some hiccups over the last month, and that defense can give up some easy buckets here and there. The value is with Georgia Tech and the free buckets at home, as this team can surprise at times. Give me the home dog.
