Why Bet On Clemson:
✅ Clemson is the hotter team coming into this game, entering this matchup on a four-game win streak. One of those wins came against Virginia Tech, who they beat at home just before the start of the conference tournament. Expect Clemson to keep their momentum rolling at the right time here to reach the ACC quarterfinals.
✅ The Tigers are playing for the second straight day, but it is worth mentioning that they did not need to exert themselves to the limit against NC State on Tuesday. They should still have something left in the tank for the Hokies, even if they are not at their peak level for this second round matchup.
✅ Virginia Tech is a good defensive team, especially compared to Clemson, but they are not a good rebounding team. The Hokies rank well into the 300s nationally with just over 32 rebounds per game. Clemson averages a couple more rebounds per contest, and should be able to give themselves a chance in this contest on the glass.
The Clemson Tigers got their ACC tournament off to a good start with a win over NC State in the first round on Tuesday. In their 70-64 win over the Wolfpack, the Tigers led for almost the entire game, thanks mostly to their defense. Clemson held NC State to an abysmal 4/23 mark from three-point range, which helped them overcome some poor shooting of their own.
Against NC State, Clemson shot just 6/23 from three-point range. If they want to earn a second straight win over Virginia Tech, the Tigers will have to be more efficient when shooting from distance. Fortunately for the Tigers, they shot 40% from deep against the Hokies in their meeting at the end of the regular season.
Virginia Tech Hokies
Virginia Tech will open its ACC Tournament against Clemson in this contest, hoping for a better result than they had against the Tigers in their last game. The Hokies fell on the road at Clemson, failing to score 60 points in a losing effort. The Hokies were held to just 30% shooting from three-point range, a number they will need to improve if they want to move to the quarterfinal round.
Justyn Mutts and Nahiem Alleyne were the only two Hokies to score in double figures against the Tigers in their regular season finale. They will need someone else to step up and contribute if they want to make it through this game with their ACC tournament hopes still intact.
