6:00 PM EST. The previously ascending Tigers just played their first game without Donte Grantham and it didn’t go so well but this market is absolutely giving Clemson a pass because they played without him against Virginia and just about every team has struggled miserably offensively against Virginia this season. Still, the Tigers scored just 36 points while shooting 31.9% from the floor. The Tigers had more turnovers (19) in the game than made field goals (15) and while we rarely put emphasis on one game or result, there are always exceptions to every rule. This is one of them. Clemson was not great offensively even before Grantham went down. We’re suggesting that this market is not quite aware how devastating this injury is for both the player and team. Now the 18th ranked Tigers will play on the road again against this unranked foe that is perceived to be a weak team when they’re not.
Tech has lost three in a row to drop to 10-10 on the year with a 3-4 conference mark. That’s not pretty but it’s once again a case of the market playing results and not ingredients. Georgia Tech has a three-point loss to then #21 UCLA. They have defeated #24 Miami by 10 and even though they lost its last three, Tech played #2 Virginia, #10 North Carolina and Florida State. Remember, the Yellow Jackets went on to win 21 games and were competitive all season long in the strong ACC last year and their top three scorers from that squad are still on this year’s team. The Yellow Jackets absolutely overachieved last season but they’ve underachieved this season and we now should be able to take advantage of that. There was an over-compensation at the start of the year to Tech’s success last season but the market has caught up to them and now there’s another adjustment taking place. Too much emphasis is being put on GT’s weak record this year and now we’re being offered something worth getting behind. Tech outright is the call.
