The Yellow Jackets are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 neutral site games, 6-1 ATS in their last 7 Tuesday games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Eagles are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up loss and 3-12 ATS in their last 15 neutral site games. The underdog is 15-5-1 ATS in the last 21 meetings and the over is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings.
Neither of these teams are in good form and it's tough to pick which of these clubs is going to be able to put together a consistent 40 minutes to continue their season. The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets have outplayed Boston College in both meetings this season, beating the Eagles by 11 points at home and taking them to overtime on the road before falling apart. However, Georgia Tech is being outscored by 10 points in games not at home this season and comes into this game really struggling on the offensive end. The Boston College Eagles should have a decent crowd advantage with this game being in New York, and they do have the guard play that usually makes the difference come tournament time. I'll lay the bucket.
