Against The Spread Pick

The Cardinals come in red-hot after just recently finishing up a three-game road trip that ended with them beating Duke in Cameron Indoor. Georgia Tech may have beaten North Carolina earlier this year, but they are certainly having a season to forget. First of all, the Yellow Jackets are banned from postseason play, so they really do not have much to play for. They have lost two games in a row and find themselves as a double-digit road underdog here. One positive for Georgia Tech is that they have a 7-2 record against the spread when not at home. This includes a loss to Duke by 9 where they still covered. Louisville is a modest 6-5 ATS at home, so that leads me to believe the Yellow Jackets can keep this one relatively close. I do not love laying this number with Louisville, who have struggled to score at times. That being said, I will take the points with Georgia Tech as the smallest of leans.

Over Under Pick

The total in this game is 132.5 and the under is where I would be looking. Both teams allow an average of 67 points or less per season, so even though Georgia Tech is not a good team, their defense has been decent. Louisville allows just 58.1 points per game when at home and this is what I believe will be the difference. The under is 13-6-1 in Louisville’s last 20 home games and 11-4 in Georgia tech’s last 15 overall. Look for the Cardinals to really slow down the Jackets and I will take the under as a small lean.
