Georgia Tech vs. Georgia Pick
Will offense be suppressed on Saturday afternoon when Georgia hosts in-state rival Georgia Tech at 12:00PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Bulldogs are 4-point home favorites versus the Yellow Jackets while the total currently sits at 48.5 points. Both the side and the over/under moved off the original numbers posted by oddsmakers, with Georgia dipping from -4.5 down to -4 and the total climbing from 48 up to 48.5.
The Yellow Jackets are coming off a 31-17 victory as a 10.5-point favorite, which gave them back-to-back victories both on the field and at the betting window. The victory also improved Georgia Tech's record to 7-4 on the year and the team is now 5-4-1 against the spread in 2016. The Yellow Jackets are also 2-1-1 against the number on the road this season.
The Bulldogs have rattled off three conescutive victories since losing to Florida 24-10 at the end of October. They beat Kentucky 27-24 as a 2.5-point favorite, upset Auburn 13-7 as a 10-point favorite, and then defeated UL-Lafayette 35-21 as a 21.5-point favorite. That win over ULL was Georgia's lone failed cover in its three-game winning streak.
OUR PREDICTION: The Bulldogs offense has been rather pedestrian this season, as it ranks 94th in the nation in yards per game. They've also been held to 16 or fewer points in three of their last five games behind freshman quarterback Nick Eason. The under is 4-1 in the last five meetings between these two teams, is 11-2 in the Bulldogs' last 13 home games and is 13-3 in their last 16 games following a win. The under is also 3-1-1 in the Yellow Jackets' last five games versus SEC opponents and is 4-0-1 in their last five games after allowing less than 20 points in their previous game.
