I really want to find a way to back Georgia Tech with the points at home here, but the Yellow Jackets have just had a hard time providing value in the underdog role at home in conference play. NC State has just been red hot up to this point and I don’t see Georgia Tech getting in the way of that. I’ll back the Wolfpack here.
