The Wahoos continue to look for that elusive final win in order to lock up bowl eligibility. Now they have to do it against the meat of their schedule with Georgia Tech coming to Charlottesville on Saturday. The Yellow Jackets bring that tough triple option attack that has been pretty good so far this season. Vegas is not a fan of UVA’s chances in this one. Let’s take a look at some trends involving this game.
- UVA is 8-10 against the spread and straight up the last three years at home.
- They have covered and won 10 of their last 12 at home in this series.
- Georgia Tech is 6-0-1 ATS this season overall.
- The Yellow Jackets have won just two road games the last three seasons.
To me, this game or the Louisville one are the two best chances for a win. The Wahoos offense has to find some consistency though because you figure Tech is going to use a lot of the clock and will grind this game down by a few possessions. The GT defense is exploitable, but do you have faith in a questionable Kurt Benkert to take advantage of that. UVA’s best chance to win is to play ball control and give their defense as much of a rest as possible. I don’t think they can do that so I see another loss, but I think they can cover this one depending what number you get from Vegas.
