College Basketball Betting Trends

Georgia Tech

The Yellow Jackets are 6-0 ATS in their last six games as a road underdog. Georgia Tech is 9-4 ATS in its last 13 Tuesday games. 

Florida State

The Seminoles are 16-4-1 ATS in its last 21 Tuesday games. Florida State is 1-4 ATS in its last five games overall.

Prediction:

The Seminoles have perhaps not played up to their full potential this season, but have still won most of their games and have an incredibly deep roster. Perhaps FSU might be better if they occasionally shortened the rotation, but they have so many quality players it's difficult to do. The Yellow Jackets are an inconsistent team barely inside the top 100 and with the early start time on the road, I think the best play here is on Florida State.
