I have backed Georgia Tech successfully each of the last two weeks and I'm going to keep pounding the Yellow Jackets until they prove me wrong. While this isn't as big of a bet as I had on them against Duke and North Carolina, I like their chances of winning this game by double-digits.
The fact that oddsmakers have listed Georgia Tech at -6.5 really says a lot about what they think of the Hokies. Last time these two teams played in Atlanta, Virginia Tech was favored by 2. Plain and simple the Yellow Jackets are out for revenge! They have lost three straight in the series, including an overtime loss in the opener last year in Blacksburg. A game they should have won. One thing to keep in mind is that the Hokies have either opened the season or came off a bye in each of their wins during their 3-game winning streak. Having extra time to prepare for an option offense like Georgia Tech is a huge advantage. This time they come in off a triple-overtime game against Marshall on a short week of rest. That dominant defense everyone is talking about isn't going to be playing up to their full potential.
Arguably the biggest key to this game is that it's being played at Bobby Dodd Stadium. Since the start of last season, Virginia Tech's only two true road wins have come against Boston College (30-23 OT) and a couple weeks ago at East Carolina. Every other road game has resulted in a loss of at least 14 points.
While I think the Hokies defense will hold their own early, I can't see them holding up the entire game. There's going to come a point where the Yellow Jackets break them and when they do it's going to result in touchdowns. On the flip side of things, Virginia Tech's offense is a complete mess. Logan Thomas has got worse with each season and there's serious issues in the kicking game. Not to mention Georgia Tech's defense is as good as it's been in years. BET THE YELLOW JACKETS!
