Line: Florida State -7.5

Total: 150.5

The 15th ranked Florida State Seminoles will host the Clemson Tigers in an ACC battle Sunday afternoon from the Donald L. Tucker Center in Tallahassee. FL. Clemson is coming off a solid 74-62 home win over Georgia Tech on Wednesday night, and Florida State crushed Miami 75-57 in their latest action. Each team notched one win on their home court in last year’s season series.

Tigers Back on Track with Two Straight Wins

The Clemson Tigers played solid defense in their 74-62 home win over a pesky Georgia Tech team on Wednesday night. Clemson shot 44% from the field, and held the Yellow Jackets ta 43% mark from the field and allowed just one three-pointer. Avry Holmes led the offensive charge with 18 points on 6 for 8 shooting. The senior guard has scored at least 14 points in five out of his last eight games, and is now averaging 11.4 points per game. Tigers leading scorer Jaron Blossomgame only scored ten points in the win along with four rebounds. Overall the 6-foot-7 forward is having a terrific season, averaging 18 points along with a team-best 7.5 rebounds per game. Clemson has now won two straight behind solid defense which was a problem in their recent six game losing streak. The Tigers are now 3-6 in ACC play, and are ranked 31st overall in Ken Pomeroy’s College Basketball Rankings.

Clemson is scoring an average of 75.4 points per game, ranking them 141st overall, and are shooting 45.3% from the field. The Tigers have been playing better defense, now allowing an average of 69 points per game, placing them 98th overall.

Seminoles Dominate Miami in Much-Needed Win

The Florida State Seminoles outscored Miami 44-23 in the second half in their convincing 75-57 road win over Miami on Wednesday night, snapping their two game skid. The Seminoles shot a dazzling 52% from the field and played great defense, holding the Hurricanes to only 45% shooting. Seminoles’ leading scorer Dwayne Bacon only made 6 of 16 attempts from the field, finishing with 15 points. The sophomore guard is having an outstanding season, averaging 17.1 points per game. Jonathan Isaac played well in the win, sinking 15 points on 5 for 7 shooting to go along with seven rebounds. The freshman forward has a bright future ahead of him, and has scored at least 15 points in five out of his last six games, now sitting second in team scoring with 13.3 points along with a team-leading eight rebounds per game. The Seminoles really needed that win after losing to Georgia Tech and Syracuse, and are right in the thick of things in the ACC, sitting fourth in the conference with a 6-3 record.

Florida State features a very strong offense, averaging 83.3 points per game, good for 17th in the Country, and are shooting 48.3% as a team. The Seminoles are conceding an average of 71 points per game, positioning them 149th overall.

Trends:

The Clemson Tigers are:

  • 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games after a straight up win.
  • the underdog is 6-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings between the Tigers and Seminoles.
  • 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS win.

The Florida State Seminoles are:

  • 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games against conference opponents.
  • 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games against a team with a winning record.

I am taking the points with Clemson in this matchup. Clemson is back on track with two straight wins behind strong defense, and overall the Tigers are strong enough on both ends of the court to keep this one close. Clemson has shown they can play on the road, going 4-3 in their seven road games this season. Also, the Seminoles defense has not been great, conceding an average of 74.1 points in ACC play, so I think Clemson can do enough offensively and defensively to keep this one closer than the spread indicates.

Pick: Clemson Tigers +7.5
