College Basketball Betting Trends
The Seminoles are 10-3-1 ATS in their last 14 Saturday games. Florida State is 5-1 ATS in its last six games overall.
The Yellow Jackets are 4-1 ATS in their last five Saturday games. Georgia Tech is 12-4 ATS in its last 16 games following a straight up loss.
Four of the six Florida State wins during its current streak have come at home, while four of the six Georgia Tech games in its losing streak have been on the road and also against some very tough competition. The Yellow Jackets are very good defensively and played well for one half against the Hokies before faltering. Expect for a more complete performance by Georgia Tech at home and as long as it figures out its offensive woes, covering the spread looks like a strong possibility.
