The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets and Ohio Bobcats match up in college basketball on Friday.
True to form the Ohio Bobcats have been riding their potent offense to a perfect 2-0 record and their scoring will determine how much success they enjoy. It’s been so far, so good as the Bobcats have been racking up the points and were at their best in Monday’s 96-75 rout of Sam Houston State. A 15 point lead after 20 minutes was enough to get the win as the Bearkats were held to less then 39% from the floor while Ohio blistered the nets at 52.5% including a 15-27 effort from long range. Antonio Campbell led all scorers with 20 points and nine rebounds with Kenny Kaminski and Jordan Dartis netting 17 points apiece for the Bobcats. Gavin Block gave Ohio eleven points and seven boards as points were not an issue.

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets have been relatively ignored in the preseason publications but they have received just enough scoring and plenty of defense in going 2-0 to begin the year. The Yellow Jackets crushed Southern 77-62 on Monday as they built a 16 point lead heading to the locker room won it with the team trading baskets the rest of the way. GT was dominant at both ends of the floor with a 49%-33% edge in marksmanship and 31 trips to the charity stripe. Tadric Jackson poured in a game high 20 points and snagged five pulls with Josh Okogie giving the Jackets 18 points. Ben Lammers and Quinton Stephens added 13 and 12 points with 13 and seven rebounds respectively.
The over is 12-4 in Ohio last 16 road games and Ohio are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 Friday games. Georgia Tech are 12-4-1 ATS in their last 17 Friday games and Georgia Tech are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall and the under is 22-8 in Georgia Tech last 30 home games.
If the Bobcats play any kind of defense I am looking for their scoring to be a big factor here…
