Thomas has thrown a pick in four straight games. Ricky Jeune and Clinton Lynch have combined for 412 receiving yards and four touchdowns while Micheal Summers has eight receptions.

The Seminoles are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 road games and 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games following a ATS win. The Yellow Jackets are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 home games and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Seminoles are 0-3-2 ATS in their last 5 meetings in Georgia Tech and 0-4-2 ATS in their last 6 meetings overall.
I loved the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets heading into the season but five straight losses in no bueno. Georgia Tech has allowed at least 30 points in its last five games, and with Golson and Cook coming to town, FSU should have a field day. Getting this line under a touchdown looks like a strong play.
