The Charlotte 49ers are 6-5 this season and despite losing their last game they have won two of their last three. Charlotte is averaging 76.5 points and their opponents are shooting 45.1 percent while defensively they are allowing 76.2 points and their opponents are shooting 41.7 percent. Braxton Ogbueze is averaging 13.1 points per game to lead the 49ers.

Georgia Tech is 5-1 against the spread against Conference USA, 1-3-1 against the spread in their last five home games, and 4-1 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the point spread. Charlotte is 4-1 against the spread in their last five road games, 1-6 against the spread against the ACC, and 6-2 against the spread against a team with a winning percentage higher than .600.
The line here has come in a little but I see Georgia Tech being the worthy favorite and I like for them to win and cover here.
