Authored by NCAA Basketball Against The Spread Expert Analyst Charlie McDougall and produced by Charliessports.com for their 2014 Basketball game on Monday December 1, 2014 at 7:00 pm EST.
The (3-3) Rutgers Scarlet Knights of the Big Ten Conference will make take trip from their campus in New Jersey to the Palmetto State to take on the (4-2) Clemson Tigers of the Atlantic Coast Conference in 2014 NCAA Basketball action. They will play at Littlejohn Coliseum in Clemson, South Carolina. This Sorts Handicapper thought Clemson coach Brad Brownell did a very god job last season, they were one or two win away from making the March Madness Tournament and he will need to do another masterful job for the Tigers to be relevant. The Rutgers Scarlet Knights need to step up recruiting in the Metro New York/New Jersey area now that they are in the Big Ten. The Opening betting line has Clemson as a 10′-point home favorite Against The Spread, and the total is not yet posted for Monday’s game.
2014-15 Rutgers Scarlet Knights lost 26 points per game with the graduation of three players. Rutgers will depend on senior guard Myles Mack for leadership and scoring this season. Coach Eddie Jordan and his staff need to hit the road recruiting hard, the Scarlet Knights are predicted to finish in the cellar of the Big Ten Conference in their first season of competing. Rutgers is 11-1 Against The spread their last twelve played on Monday’s and were 3-7 ATS their last ten on the road. Rutgers is 1-2 Against The Number, going over the total once and staying under the2014 NCAA Basketball Expert Predictions twice. Rutgers best NBA prospect is Forward /Center Kadeem Jack, and he must flex his muscle and dominate at Clemson for the Scarlet Knights to have a chance to win.
The 2014-15 Clemson Tigers are without K.J. McDaniel, who in the NBA and the program is predicted to finish in the bottom five of the very competitive Atlantic Coast Conference. The over is 8-1 their last nine at home and they have gone over 12 of their last 15 overall. Clemson has had a few bad losses to start out this season; they lost to a decent Winthrop Mid-Major program 77-74. Clemson is 2-1 /against The Spread this season and have gone over once this season. The key to a Clemson win is to play their signature defense, they ranked fifth nationally in defense last year and they must step up even more this season.
Free Pick: Rutgers+10′.
