Our Best Pick: Clemson to Cover

The Tigers come into this matchup having been underdogs in each of their last three games and are thriving. A closer examination of their first encounter reveals some remarkable similarities with their current performance.

Clemoson’s defense was outstanding in its earlier matchup with Alabama, keeping Alabama well below its scoring average and 40 per cent shooting. Furthermore, Clemson has held all three opponents it has faced during this tournament well below their scoring average and 3-point shooting average.

The Crimson Tide are averaging 44 rebounds per game during this tournament; Clemson held their own and tied with them as each team accumulated 41 rebounds apiece in their first matchup. The Clemson Tigers have proven themselves worthy of tournament consideration this season by going 9-4 against those teams that made the cut this season. Clemson’s veteran backcourt has performed impressively by cutting turnovers during this run; I expect they’ll continue their strong play into Saturday.

Alabama vs Clemson Moneyline

The Moneyline makes it so the value falls when betting Clemson on the money line. If you are beating Alabama, take theβ€”-2.5. I love Clemson in this matchup, and the value of betting on Clemson on the money line is too good to ignore.Β  At the same time, Bama has been hot, and that 2.5 points may be the most valuable bet in this game.

Clemson’s earlier win was a long time ago, but there are things that we can take away and apply to this game. The Tigers held their own against Bama on the boards, and if that happens again, Clemson wins this game. Check out our Sweet 16 Selections, where we went 5-3.

Clemson vs Alabama Over/Under Analysis

These are two high-scoring teams that can score bunches quickly, but they are also two teams that are playing better as of late on defence. With nerves on edge in this game, I will lean towards an under bet. I see Clemson holding their own on the boards and winning this game late with some timely outside shooting.

Bama will have issues getting into their transition offense because of Clemson’s ability to hang in on the boards. Clemson matches up well against Alabama and I look for a close game, but Clemson is a little bit better.

Clemson vs Alabama Spread Analysis

This game should be a pick ’em-Clemson small favorite; if anybody should be the favorite, it should be Clemson. Clemson won the previous battle and has been on fire from the perimeter.

Both teams can score quickly, but this game may have more of a game in the 70s feel than a run-and-gun battle that plays into the nineties. Clemson has had doubters in each of their fist three tourney games and those doubters should be gone by now. The Tigers can leave no doubt with one more win.

Clemson vs Alabama Player Props

P.J. Hall To Record 6+ Rebounds (-160)

Hall, who hails from South Carolina, has been one of the Tigers’ most reliable performers over the past three seasons. He is Clemson’s second-most productive rebounder (behind Ian Schieffelin), with an average of 6.5 Rebounds Per Game heading into the Elite Eight.

Alabama’s run-and-gun style — boasting 64.7 field goal attempts per game nationally — on the hardwood could open up more rebounding opportunities for Clemson. Assuming an active game scenario, I expect Hall to be front and center.

Hall recorded eight boards against Arizona on Thursday and when Alabama and Tigers last met, Hall netted that same total.

Hall’s physical advantages will give him an advantage in this market. Crimson Tide guards Mark Sears and Aaron Estrada combine for 25.2 shots per game – 10.0 three-point attempts per game! – and many will hit their marks, while those that don’t could present rebounding opportunities for Hall.

Clemson vs Alabama Head-to-Head

Clemson is a veteran team that won the earlier meeting between these two teams. They did it by controlling the pace, slowing down Alabama’s transition game while holding their own on the boards. Ten different Tigers played at least twelve minutes in Clemson’s win over Alabama, and that depth could also play a factor in this game. Clemson looked like the better team in that first matchup and it makes me think that betting Clemson SU is a great bet in this game.

Conclusion

Games played way back at the start of the season between teams usually doesn’t mean a whole lot. This game is a different matter as the Tigers ability to hold their own on the boards makes me think that Clemson has a shot at another upset. The Tigers are nailing the three-point shot so far in this tournament and if that continues I lobe their chance to cover this game. People keep overlooking these Tigers, and I think, once again, Clemson is poised for another big game.
