Georgia Tech vs. Georgia Pick
Who has the edge when non-conference rivals Georgia and Georgia Tech collide tonight at 9PM ET?
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Georgia is the slight favorite in this game, as the Bulldogs are getting odds of -4.5 points against Georgia Tech. The over/under total for the contest is listed at 128 points. Tonight’s game takes place from Stegeman Coliseum in Athens, Georgia and will air live on ESPN2.
Georgia Tech is coming off a 79-54 win over Florida A&M to snap a three-game losing streak. The Yellow Jackets are now 5-4 on the season and 3-3 against the spread. They are 0-1 ATS in their lone road game. Tech is putting up 65.6 points per game on offense while allowing just 61.2 per game. Josh Okogie scored 19 points in his season debut this weekend while Ben Lammers is leading the team with 13.3 points and 8.1 rebounds per game.
Georgia is coming off a 72-62 loss at UMass this past weekend, which ended a three-game win streak. The Bulldogs are now 7-2 on the season while posting a 2-4 record against the spread. Georgia is putting up 73.1 points per game on offense while allowing 68.6 per contest. Yante Maten is leading the team with 18.7 points and 9.3 rebounds per game while William Jackson II is averaging 12.7 points and 4.1 assists per contest.
Georgia has won its last two meetings with Georgia Tech, covering the spread in both games. However, Georgia is just 3-8 against the spread in their last 11 home games and 2-7 ATS in their last nine non-conference games. Georgia Tech has covered the spread in six straight Tuesday games. The public betting is behind Georgia tonight, but I think the Yellow Jackets have enough balance on offense to give the Bulldogs problems and steal a win.
