Clemson vs. Memphis CBB Prediction:
Both of these teams have been tested, but I think Memphis has played the tougher schedule so far. They have road wins over VCU, Missouri, and Texas A&M and neutral site wins over Michigan and Arkansas. Additionally, Memphis is 2-0 ATS against ranked opponents this year and 7-1 ATS against ranked foes since the start of last season. Given that this game is in Memphis, I'm giving them a slight edge in this matchup. I like Memphis to hand Clemson its first loss of the year on Saturday, and I think the home team will win by 3 points or more.
