TheSpread.com betting matchup advantage:
TheSpread.com betting matchup has Georgia Tech as a –2 point favorite. Our Free College Football Bowl Pick is: LSU +4.5. Most public bettors are high on Georgia Tech because it’s coming off a huge victory over Georgia and has one of the more explosive offenses in the nation. The Tigers have struggled mightily this year on offense because of poor quarterback play, but their defense is still solid and could give the Jackets trouble if they figure out their triple-option attack early in the game. Tech might win, but 4.5 is a lot of points to give an SEC team with a lot of bowl experience.
