Virginia Tech vs Georgia Tech Odds - Yellow Jackets to run through Hokies

Posted by Blake Frazier on 10/13/2009 4:07:29 PM
football betting tipsThe Virginia Tech vs Georgia Tech odds matches up the two top teams in the ACC, but the record are misleading in this game. Both teams are 5-1, yet the Hokies are credible while the Yellow Jackets have yet to fully prove their worth. Yet while the Hokies have the better defense, online betting fans saw that defense get worked on the ground earlier this year.

Virginia Tech vs Georgia Tech odds: Virginia Tech -3

  • WHAT: NCAA Football betting
  • WHEN: Saturday, October 17th – 6:00 PM ET
  • WHERE: Bobby Dodd Stadium – Atlanta, GA
  • PICK: Yellow Jackets +3

Virginia Tech vs Georgia Tech odds maker breakdown: What’s On The Line
The Hokies (5-1, 3-0) are not only the top team in the ACC right now, but they are the No. 4 team in the nation at the moment. They have their eye on a BCS prize, and should Alabama - or Florida or Texas - slip up, they could be playing for a Championship game.

Meanwhile, NCAA football betting fans know that the Yellow Jackets are looking for credibility. They are 5-1, true, but they haven’t defeated anyone in the Top 25. A win on Saturday gives them the missing spice they need - but this game still means more to the Hokies.

Betting Edge: Virginia Tech

Virginia Tech vs Georgia Tech odds maker breakdown: Offense
The Hokies offense is a run-oriented unit. While quarterback Tyrod Taylor isn’t capable of being solely a pocket passer, if this team can run, they are going to win almost every game they play. Freshman tailback Ryan Williams has been outstanding in his first season, and with Taylor making key throws, this offense is tough to stop.

The Yellow Jackets offense exploded last week as quarterback Josh Nesbitt ran for a career-high three touchdowns in a 49-44 romp of Florida State. The Yellow Jackets picked up 532 total yards, 401 of which were on the ground. The triple option is working right now, but the Hokies might have the defense to slow it down.

Betting Edge: Even

Virginia Tech vs Georgia Tech odds maker breakdown: Defense
The Hokies defense is playing about as good as anyone in the nation, but they have shown some leaks in their rush defense earlier in the year. Since giving up 34 points to Alabama, the Hokies have allowed just 14.4 points per game. The Hokies have been ahead in their recent contests but if Alabama and Nebraska showed us anything, it’s that the Hokies defense can be run on.

The Jackets defense is fairly brutal right now, which will help keep the Hokies in the game - and maybe even ahead. Last week, the Jackets were gashed for 35 first half points and five touchdown passes at the hands of Florida State. But the Hokies do their dirt on the ground and are more one-dimensional than people like to let on. That should make the chore for the struggling Yellow Jackets defense a little easier.

Virginia Tech vs Georgia Tech State betting breakdown: Outlook and Pick
Sportsbook odds makers have the Hokies as a small favorite, which might surprise some bettors this week given how good the Hokies looked last week. But the Yellow Jackets need a credible win and this could be it. The Hokies have shown a propensity to give up yards on the ground earlier this year, and if they do so again, the Yellow Jackets might come up with a big upset over the No. 4 team in the nation.

BLAKE’S PICK: Yellow Jackets +3
