Georgia Tech is 3-1-1 against the spread in their last five home games, 3-1-1 against the spread against the ACC, and 10-4-1 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the point spread. Florida State is 6-1 against the spread in their last seven games, 3-8 against the spread in their last 11 road games, and 4-0 against the spread against a team with a losing record. The underdog has covered the point spread in 12 of the last 16 meetings of these two.
Florida State is just playing the better hoops right now and while I don’t love this game I will go with the Noles.
