Bet on NCAAFCollege football fans have an attractive Thursday night ESPN feature game to handicap for NCAAF betting as the Miami Hurricanes host the Ramblin’ Wreck from Georgia Tech. College football handicappers will have a NCAAF betting matchup of two undefeated teams that are favored to contend for the Atlantic Coast Conference championship.
The Miami Hurricanes are coming off an unforgettable college football opener in which they defeated the Florida State Seminoles 38-34 on Labor Day night as 6-point road dogs with the game soaring over the NCAAF betting total of 47. Miami twice came back in the 4th quarter and needed a late goal line stand to preserve the college football betting upset. Quarterback Jacory Harris had a phenomenal opener as he was 21-34 for 386 yards with 2 touchdowns and 2 interceptions for a college football quarterback rating of 164.8. Harris is a sophomore that played like a well seasoned senior. Wide receiver Travis Benjamin proved to be a player to keep a sharp eye on as he had a phenomenal college football opener with 4 catches for 128 yards and 1 touchdown. Miami had a college football bye last week and should be well prepared and rested for this opener.
Georgia Tech is 2-0 straight up but 0-1 against the college football spread and has been inconsistent in the process. Last week the Yellow Jackets held on for a 30-27 win over Clemson in which they blew a 24-0 lead and failed to cover the college football line as 5-point home chalks with the game going under the total of 44. It took a Scott Blair field goal of 36 yards to give Georgia Tech the college football straight up victory.
Georgia Tech is a throwback type of team in that they emphasize the run rather than the spread offense or the pass. Quarterback Josh Nesbitt is known far more as an outstanding running quarterback that as a passer. Nesbitt has ran for 184 yards and a 5.8 yards per carry average. Running back Jonathan Dwyer had 161 yards, 2 touchdowns, and a 6.4 yards per carry average. The Jackets have the nation’s 4th best ground attack.
