College Basketball Betting Trends

Georgia Tech

The Yellow Jackets are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games overall. Georgia Tech is 10-4 ATS in its last 14 road games.


The Wildcats are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 Saturday games. Kentucky is 3-7 ATS in its last 10 games following an ATS win.


Do not completely discount the Yellow Jackets as they are a top 100 team currently and the best squad Kentucky has faced since beating Michigan State in its opener. Georgia Tech has faced four top 100 teams and gone 1-3 straight up, but the two losses prior to the Syracuse fiasco were extremely close. Expect the Yellow Jackets to show some pride here and give the Wildcats at least a decent test to stay within the number.
