Georgia Tech-Virginia odds: Virginia expected to dominate

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (2-6, 1-4 Atlantic Coast South) visit the first-place Virginia Cavaliers (6-3, 4-2) Saturday at Scott Stadium in Charlottesville, Va., for a noon ET kickoff. We analyze the Georgia Tech-Virginia odds and betting lines while providing college football betting tips and advice on this matchup.

Georgia Tech at Virginia: Three things you need to know

1. Georgia Tech can be pretty stingy on defense and special teams. It has blocked three kicks this year, and it’s second in the ACC in pass defense (187.9 yards per game) and 10th nationally in red-zone trips (allowing 26 scores in 37 tries for a 70.3% rate).

2. Virginia QB Bryce Perkins cannot turn the ball over. If he holds on to the ball, scoring opportunities should come. Perkins totaled 490 yards and five touchdowns combined at North Carolina last week.

3. Georgia Tech must run the ball to control the clock and hope for turnovers to stay in this game. If its defense can just get off the field more than expected, the Yellow Jackets can stay close but ONLY if they control the lines.

Prediction

Virginia 34, Georgia Tech 13

Moneyline (ML)

VIRGINIA carries a -770 moneyline. The reasons for this are the fact that the Cavaliers are up against a first-year coach and they have division title aspirations with their final three contests at home.

Georgia Tech (+525) has to scrap, claw, force turnovers and hope for early big plays just to stay close.

New to sports betting? Every $7.70 wagered that Virginia wins profits $1 if the Cavs prevail. (Ex: $77 to win $10, $154 to win $20, $770 to win $100 – a $10 bet profits just $1.30). Betting on Georgia Tech? Every $1 wagered would profit $5.25 if the Jackets pull the upset.

Against the Spread (ATS)

Virginia is 2-1-1 against the spread at home but has exceeded the cover line by 4.4 points per game. Georgia Tech is just 1-3 ATS on the road but it’s one win was an outright victory which drove its ATS to +2.8 points per game.

VIRGINIA16.5, ( -106) is the PLAY. If the Cavs hold on to the ball, they will cover.

Over/Under (O/U)

The O/U is 45.5 ( -110). Taking a small wager with the OVER is our pick for this Saturday afternoon ACC battle.
