The Georgia Tech football team enters their last game of the 2019 season as four-touchdown underdogs to the Georgia Bulldogs.
The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets picked up win No.3 of the 2019 season on Thursday night when they took down ACC opponent, North Carolina State. Now, as we enter Thanksgiving week and weekend, the Yellow Jackets are set to wrap up the season with some Clean, Old-Fashioned Hate as a top-5 Georgia Bulldogs team comes to Bobby Dodd Stadium.
That being said, Vegas is not showing much faith in the Jackets putting up a fight on Saturday afternoon as according to Action Network, the Jackets are early four-touchdown underdogs to their bitter rivals.
The Jackets enter this week at 3-8 on the season but one could make an argument that the Jackets are just a handful of plays away from being 5-6. That being said, the Bulldogs, are entering this week at 10-1 with hopes of making it back to the College Football Playoffs. Besides a date with LSU in the SEC Championship game, one of the last remaining obstacles for the Bulldogs is the Yellow Jackets.
The Bulldogs despite struggles at times this season have been playing some of their best football in recent weeks and is coming off a close win against Texas A&M. The Bulldogs have covered the spread in four of their last five games. When facing a team as a 20+ point favorite this season, the Bulldogs are 3-3 against the spread and 5-1 straight up. That lone loss of course came against South Carolina on October 12th.
The Yellow Jackets this season failed to cover the spread in each of their first five games but have done rather well since. Since starting 0-5, the Jackets are 3-2-1 with a PUSH against Duke. That being said, the Bulldogs will be the Jackets biggest test of the season since week one when they took on the Clemson Tigers. The Jackets entered that game as -36.5 point underdogs and failed to cover, losing 52-14. Saturday’s match-up against the Bulldogs should be interesting and should be a good way to see how much progress the Yellow Jackets have made through the course of Geoff Collin’s first season as head coach.
Tech fans can catch this year’s version of Clean, Old-Fashioned Hate on ABC at 12:00 pm on Saturday.
