Las Vegas Superbook CG Technology not too high on Georgia Tech entering 2017.
It appears that Las Vegas Superbook CG Technology believes that Georgia Tech their losing starting quarterback Justin Thomas among some key defensive players is too much to replace in 2017. After going a strong 9-4 last season including a 4-4 ACC record, CG Technology sets Georgia Tech’s over/under at just 6.5 for the 2017 season. Not too high of expectations for Paul Johnson and his team entering the upcoming season.
For Georgia Tech, it is the second straight season a Superbook has given the Yellow Jackets a 6.5 win total, two years ago the Jackets saw a 7.5 win total but went 3-9 following an Orange Bowl victory in 2014.
That being said the Jackets schedule won’t be the easiest in 2016 but is not overwhelmingly difficult as well. Georgia Tech opens up their season on Labor Day against Tennesee at the new Mercedez Benz Dome.
The leading over/under total for next season belongs to Alabama with 10.5 wins. The Crimson Tide, could very well be better in 2017 after having one of the most dominant defenses in recent memory, they’re also coming off a National Championship loss which should make them hungry. Second, the Big Ten perennial favorites of Ohio State, with a total of 10. Last season, Ohio State was not their strongest which is scary to most considering how strong they were. Adding offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson should make their offense even more explosive. Alabama and Ohio State are the only teams that currently have an over/under total of 10 or higher.
