Miami is 0-8 ATS in their last 8 games overall and 0-7 ATS in their last 7 games following an ATS loss while the under is 5-0 in their last 5 games against a team with a losing record. Georgia Tech is 5-12 ATS in their last 17 games overall and 7-20 ATS in their last 27 home games while the under is 6-0 in their last 6 home games.
I get the reasoning for wanting to back Miami here, but the Hurricanes have been a disaster in a lot of their recent games. On the other side, I’m not excited to back Georgia Tech in any way shape or form either. Instead, I’m going to side with the under here. I’m expecting this game to be a slopfest that’s mainly played between the 20s and one that feels like the first to 17 wins. Give me the under.
