Clemson travels to Florida State in a battle of struggling ACC clubs on Tuesday night. The Tigers have lost four straight and eight of their last 10 to fall to 4-10 in conference play. They will try to get on track against a Florida State team that has dropped six in a row, including a 20-point loss at North Carolina over the weekend.

Clemson vs. Florida State Prediction and Pick

Both teams are typically known for their defenses, but that has actually been the cause of their downfall in conference play, both bottom half in defensive efficiency per KenPom.

Both sides allow a ton of three's, Clemson is 12th in opponent three-point rate in ACC and Florida State is 13th, and neither side is defending it particularly well as opponents are hitting on more than 37% of them.

Considering neither team can defend the perimeter and both teams are fouling at a higher rate in ACC play, we can see points in bunches both from beyond the arc and at the free throw line during this game. The Tigers are the more methodical offense, but playing in Tallahassee I expect we see the Noles try and run to push the tempo, their more preferred style of play, leading me to the over.

These two played on February 2nd, going over the closing total of 137.5 with Clemson winning at home 75-69. I believe we are in line for another game that each team pushes 70 points with FSU dictating the pace.
