Syracuse is listed as a 1.5-point road favorite with an attached ML price of -120. The total for this game is set at 141 points.

Syracuse is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Saturday games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS win while the over is 8-3 in their last 11 road games. Georgia Tech is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 games against a team with a winning record.
I’m sticking with Syracuse here. The Orange are just the better team and Georgia Tech just hasn’t really had anything go right over the course of conference play. If we were getting a few more points, maybe I could be talked into Georgia Tech as some of these meetings have been close, but with the line so close to a pick ‘em, I have to back Syracuse here.
