Yellow Jackets unable to solve Cavs

Georgia Tech lost by a score of 63-58 at home Saturday night against Virginia to drop to 8-10 overall and 3-5 in the Atlantic Coast Conference. The Yellow Jackets trailed 33-25 at halftime and were unable to recover.

College Basketball Betting Trends

Georgia Tech

The Yellow Jackets are 8-1 ATS in their last nine road games. Georgia Tech is 5-2 ATS in its last seven Wednesday games.

Louisville

The Cardinals are 5-2 ATS in their last seven home games. Louisville is 36-16-2 ATS in its last 54 games versus an opponent with a losing straight up record.

Prediction:

The Yellow Jackets have strangely played better on the road than at home over the last month, but that might end tonight. The Cardinals have a deep roster and instead of a lackluster effort following the win at Duke, I think Louisville builds off it by rolling past an inferior opponent. Georgia Tech is barely in the top 200 in adjusted offensive efficiency and with the baskets not coming consistently, I think it struggles to keep up with the Cardinals tonight.
