The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets are 8-3 for the season but they have played just the 269th ranked schedule in the country. GT has won their last three games but the schedule gets more difficult going forward. Marcus Georges-Hunt is averaging 12.7 points, and 4.8 rebounds to lead the Yellow Jackets. Trae Golden is averaging 12.6 points, Robert Carter is averaging 11 points and 9.8 rebounds, and Daniel Miller is averaging 10.1 points and 7.9 rebounds. Georgia Tech is averaging 74.1 points and they are shooting 44.8 percent while defensively they are allowing 64.9 points and their opponents are shooting 38.4 percent. This is the first of four consecutive road games for Georgia Tech.
Vanderbilt is 23-8-1 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the spread, 5-2 against the spread in their last seven Saturday games, and 4-1 against the spread in their last five home games against a team with a winning percentage better than .600. Georgia Tech is 3-7 against the spread against the SEC, 7-22 against the spread following a win, and 15-31-1 against the spread against a team with a winning record. The home team has covered the spread in the last four meetings of these two.
Vandy has been in some close games and I see this one being close as well so I am going to take Georgia Tech and the points.
