College Basketball Betting Odds:
Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets
The Yellow Jackets fly into this evening’s contest sporting a disappointing 11-13 record. And with a 3-8 record in ACC play this season, it’s no surprise to see Georgia Tech rank 10th overall in the conference. Furthermore, Georgia Tech enter this Wednesday’s contest riding a 5 game losing streak, lending further credibility to tonight’s lopsided odds. On top of that, the Yellow Jackets are 2-7 in their last 9 matchups. With that in mind, it’s looking like Georgia Tech is headed straight for a blowout this Wednesday night. After all, the program is 2-8 in their last 10 versus Virginia Tech. Tonight’s college basketball betting odds are predicting a 12 point spread for Virginia Tech to cover. Right now the Yellow Jackets are scoring 65.5 per game while the Hokies are putting up 75.6. Defensively Georgia Tech is allotting 64.3 while Virginia Tech is giving up 60.7.
Players to Watch: Jose Alvarado (11.7 ppg, 3.8 rpg, 3.3 apg), James Banks III (10.4 ppg, 7.5 rpg, 1.2 apg), and Michael Devoe (9.2 ppg, 3.4 rpg, 2.4 apg).
The Hokies step into this Wednesday night contest sporting an 18-5 record. But with a 7-4 record in conference play this season, VTech currently ranks 6th overall in the ACC. With Duke currently leading the charge in the ACC with their 10-1 conference record, it’s clear that Virginia Tech has already fallen too far behind. Nevertheless, the program should be able to pick up an easy ACC win over the meager Yellow Jackets this Wednesday evening. There won’t be too much value in taking Virginia Tech straight up here. However, you can counter those lopsided odds by making a teaser prediction off of this ACC contest. It should be mentioned that Virginia Tech has lost their last two matchups in a row. Nevertheless, the odds are confident they’ll pull through at home tonight.
Players to Watch: Nickeil Alexander-Walker (17.3 ppg, 4.3 rpg, 3.6 apg), Justin Robinson (14.4 ppg, 3.4 rpg, 5.4 apg), and Kerry Blackshear Jr. (13.3 ppg, 6.7 rpg, 1.9 apg).
