The Yellow Jackets are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games in November and 5-13 ATS in their last 18 games overall. The Tar Heels are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 conference games and 1-6 ATS vs. a team with a losing record. The over is 5-2 in Yellow Jackets last 7 road games. The over is 5-2 in Tar Heels last 7 home games. The favorite is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings.

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets are a below average team that’s 125th in scoring offense. That’s concerning when going up against an explosive UNC offense that’s led by one of the best quarterbacks in the country and probably should be a Heisman candidate if we’re being honest. I’m afraid Georgia Tech won’t have the horses to keep up here. I’ll lay the chalk with the Tar Heels.
