Clemson Hunting for Tournament Berth

Despite their potential to win and finish first in the ACC, the Tigers are stuck on the NCAA Tournament bubble after losing four of their previous seven games. Clemson rebounded well with back-to-back wins over Syracuse and North Carolina State, but the damage has been done.

Despite the turnaround, Clemson needs a strong finish to impress the selection committee and extend their season past Saturday’s regular-season finale against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

The Tigers may be in a tough spot, but the betting history suggests an against-the-spread (ATS) win is likely. Clemson is 5-2 against the spread as underdogs, 2-0 against ranked opponents and 11-9 following a straight-up (SU) win.

Clemson is also healthy, with no injuries of note to report. The team dealt with injury woes earlier in the month, which likely contributed to its rough patch during that time.

Virginia Losers of Back-to-Back Games

The Cavaliers entered play last week on an 11-1 straight-up run with wins over ranked teams, including NC State. However, when it came to crunch time, the Cavs stumbled with losses to Boston College and North Carolina in consecutive games. The losses came at the worst time. Had Virginia just split games, they’d be tied for first in the conference.

The good news is that Virginia is home on Tuesday after both recent losses occurred on the road. The Cavaliers are very strong at the John Paul Jones Arena with a 13-1 record.

Clemson vs Virginia Picks and Prediction

With so much on the line for both teams, I expect this game to come down to the wire. Because of that, I believe Clemson has the advantage in terms of covering the spread as an underdog. The Tigers are coming off an impressive road victory over NC State by 25 points and they will keep the ATS win streak alive on Tuesday.

The Virginia Cavaliers are listed at -275 in our Vegas college basketball lines. If you wager $100 on the Cavaliers, you can win $36. The Clemson Tigers are +225, offering a chance to win $225 on a $100 wager.

The implied probability attached to the betting lines gives the Cavaliers a 73.33% chance to win, with the Tigers at 30.77%.
