Moses Wright led the Jackets with 24 points on 9 of 17 shooting with 7 rebounds while Michael Devoe chipped in 15 points on 6 of 11 shooting with a pair of threes and a team-high 8 assists.

Delaware State is 3-9 ATS in their last 12 road games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games following a loss while the over is 8-1 in their last 9 games overall. Georgia Tech is 7-3 ATS in their last 10 home games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a win while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 Sunday games.
I get that this is a lot of points for a Georgia Tech team that just looked flat against Florida State, but this seems like a good get-right spot for the Yellow Jackets as Delaware State is just horrendous on defense and while it’s only a two-game sample size, allowing 105 points per game and getting crushed by 60 against another ACC team in Wake Forest doesn’t inspire much confidence. Georgia Tech still has that win over Kentucky and a win over Nebraska as well, and I think the Yellow Jackets can get into a rhythm here. If Wake can win by 60, I’m pretty sure Georgia Tech can win by at least 40. I’ll lay the points with Georgia Tech in this spot.
