The Yellow Jackets are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss, 18-7-1 ATS in their last 26 Wednesday games and 18-7 ATS in their last 25 games overall. The Terriers are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 non-conference games, 18-8 ATS in their last 26 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 19-8-2 in Terriers last 29 overall and the under is 10-4-1 in Yellow Jackets last 15 overall.
The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets are likely going to get out of this funk sooner or later, but are we really going to lay chalk on the road with a team that lost to Grambling State at home? Wofford has played South Carolina, Texas Tech and Cal this season, so the Terriers are battle tested, and they're one of the best offensive teams in the country with a top-10 shooting percentage from deep. A Georgia Tech win and cover wouldn't be surprising, but the value is with Wofford and the points based on how Georgia Tech has played.
