The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets have opened as 5.5-point underdogs to the Virginia Tech Hokies.
Each of the last few weeks, Geoff Collins’ Georgia Tech football program has made big strides and have begun putting everything together to be a competitive program despite a mass overhaul. While the Jackets enter the week at 2-7, fans have to be happy with the improvements and strides being made.
For their game this upcoming weekend against the Virginia Tech Hokies, the Jackets have opened as 5.5-point underdogs to Virginia Tech according to ActionNetwork. That is the lowest spread for the Jackets this season as underdogs, the previous low was nine points which happened twice this season (once again Temple and once again Pittsburgh).
After not covering the spread in any of their first six games this season, the Yellow Jackets have covered the spread in two of their last three games including last weekend against the Virginia Cavaliers.
The Hokies, on the other hand, this season have covered the spread in four of their last five games and are 4-5 overall this season. This past weekend, the Hokies took down a top-25 ranked Wake Forest Demon Deacons by a final score of 34-17. The Hokies looked bad earlier this season and Justin Fuente’s seat appeared to be alarmingly hot but now they seem to have their legs under them.
The Jackets and Hokies are put on tremendous games and Saturday’s matchup between the two should be another good one in what has become one of the better rivalries in the ACC.
