Against The Spread Pick

A lackluster game on the Saturday card will see the disappointing Miami Hurricanes take on a Georgia Tech team that is ineligible to play in the NCAA tournament this season. Not that Georgia Tech would make it anyway, but knowing that they are not allowed to play in the tournament because of violations is deflating. The Yellow Jackets were able to get back to .500 on the season with a win last time out against Clemson. Miami lost to Notre Dame in a blowout in their last game to further put them in the cellar. The Jackets are 8-5 ATS at home this season, so we should see a good game from them. However, Miami beat Tech in the first meeting, 80-65. This game feels too close to call, so I would not recommend betting it. My lean would be with the Jackets because they are a much better team at home.

Over Under Pick

I really have no interest in this total, but seeing how Miami is scoring the ball would have me looking at the over. the Hurricanes are averaging 82 points per game over their last five, but are allowing 81. Tech on the other hand, is playing much better defense, allowing 69.6 points over their last five, while scoring only 70.8. The over is 7-3 in Miami’s last 10 games and 5-2 in Tech’s last 7 games. If I had to play this total, it would be a lean to the over because of the lack of defense being played by Miami.
