College Basketball Betting Trends
The Yellow Jackets are 6-2 ATS in their last eight Saturday games. Georgia Tech is 5-1 ATS in its last six road games.
The Seminoles are 9-2-1 ATS in its last 12 Saturday games. Florida State is 3-7-1 ATS in its last 11 home games.
Florida State looks to have turned a corner again, but I don't know that I am ready to bet on it as that big of a favorite yet. The Yellow Jackets are a porous offensive team, but are actually one of the better defensive teams in the entire country. That alone should be able to keep them afloat and within a dozen points, which would be enough to cover this spread. Last season, Georgia Tech lost by a count of 88-77 at the Seminoles.
