Georgia vs Georgia Tech Betting Odds - Tech defense will allow Georgia to hang around

football betting spreadThe Georgia vs Georgia Tech betting odds renew the clean old-fashioned hate in what should be a heated battle. The Bulldogs have been awful this season while the Yellow Jackets are heading to the ACC Championship, which makes game look like a mismatch on paper. But online betting cappers should be aware that the Tech defense is weak. This will be a shootout, but Georgia has the weapons to hang around and cover.

Georgia vs Georgia Tech betting odds: Georgia Tech -7.5
WHAT: NCAA Football betting
WHEN: Saturday, November 28th – 8:00 PM ET
WHERE: Bobby Dodd Stadium - Atlanta, GA
KEY STAT: Indy will start two rookie cornerbacks
PICK: Georgia +7.5

Georgia vs Georgia Tech betting odds maker breakdown: What’s On The Line
It’s been an ugly decline for Georgia (6-5, 4-4) as the losses of Matt Stafford and Knowshon Moreno have been huge. The Bulldogs have just six wins on the year, which is paltry by their standards. Everyone is taking their turns with them, giving them a good walloping. A win against Georgia Tech could salvage that, though.

For Georgia Tech (10-1, 7-1), it took Paul Johnson just two years to get his team into the ACC Championship and they are one of the best in the nation. Their option attack is dynamic and difficult to stop, and a lot of people are curious what they can do in a BCS game.

Betting Edge: Georgia Tech

Georgia vs Georgia Tech betting odds maker breakdown: Offense
The offense for Georgia has weapons, but maybe not enough. Quarterback Joe Cox has had a tough time filling Matt Stafford’s shoes, and nobody’s been around to fill Moreno’s shoes. On top of that, NCAAF betting fans should be conscious that star wideout A.J. Green is dealing with a shoulder injury. Overall, this team still has talent but this has been a year of rebuilding.

It’s been the opposite for the Yellow Jackets. College football betting fans know that running back Jonathan Dwyer is one of the best in the nation, and he spearheads a rushing offense that is churning out over 300 yards per game. This unit is humming and will be tough to stop.

Betting Edge: Georgia Tech

Georgia vs Georgia Tech betting odds maker breakdown: Defense
On defense, the Bulldogs have an edge. Their rush defense is allowing just 120.5 yards per game on the ground, which is third best in the SEC behind Florida and Alabama. The Yellow Jackets have a good quarterback in Jamar Nesbitt and he can make occasional throws, but if they can slow down the run, they’ll be in this game to the end.

For the Yellow Jackets, their defense has been a letdown. The secondary has lots of holes and the Bulldogs have weapons to exploit it. The Yellow Jackets held Duke to just 10 points, but prior to that this season, they’ve given up 27 points to Wake Forest, 31 to Vanderbilt, 44 to Florida State, 31 to Mississippi State and 33 to Miami.

Betting Edge: Georgia

Georgia vs Georgia Tech betting odds maker breakdown: Notable Injuries
A.J. Green (shoulder) is doubtful for this contest, and that’s a big blow to Georgia. He’s their best receiver and maybe their best player overall. They have depth to fill in for him, but they’ll miss his presence.

For Georgia Tech, center Sean Bedford is questionable with an ankle injury.

Betting Edge: Georgia Tech

Georgia vs Georgia Tech betting odds breakdown: Outlook and Pick
Sportsbook odds makers expect Georgia Tech to win this game, but as this rivalry typically goes, the match should be close. The Bulldogs should be able to move the ball regularly on Georgia Tech, and they should be more used to that option this time around. Look for the Bulldogs to finish the day with the ‘L’ but to still be within the touchdown spread.

BLAKE’S PICK: Georgia +7.5
