Bet on NCAAFCollege football odds will include an ACC college football betting matchup of top contender Georgia Tech against resurgent Virginia. College football odds have been in the black on both teams so far this college football betting season and both have had surprising success as of late.
The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets have a record of 6-1 straight up and 4-2 with the college football odds. Georgia Tech is coming off their biggest college football betting win of the season last week as they beat #4 Virginia Tech 28-23 as 3.5-point home dogs to gain the inside track in the ACC Coastal Division race.
The biggest online betting surprise, however, is that Virginia has climbed off the mat after an 0-3 straight up start to win their last 3 games with the college football odds to take first place in the Coastal. Virginia was written off after falling flat on their faces out of the gate but their resurgence has made those who handicap the college football odds take a second look at them. Last week Virginia beat the college football odds with a 20-9 win at Maryland as 3.5-point road chalks.
Georgia Tech’s strength with the college football odds is their powerful ground attach that ranks 2nd in the nation. The offense is led by quarterback Josh Nesbitt who has 625 yards rushing with 9 touchdowns along with 894 yards passing and 4 TD strikes. Nesbitt was phenomenal in the Ramblin’ Wreck’s college football odds payout last week as he ran for 122 yards and 3 TD’s and clinched the game with a 39 yard touchdown run with 3:00 remaining.
Defense is what has saved Virginia’s season and perhaps head coach Al Groh’s job. The Cavaliers rank 21st in total defense and have not allowed more than 9 points in any of their last 3 games. Offense remains Virginia’s weakness with the college football odds as they rank an inept 107th nationally.
The Cavaliers will need their defense to be at its best to beat Georgia Tech and hope to be catching the Yellow Jackets in a perfect “let down” trap situation. Virginia has scored 5 consecutive payouts for gamblers at home against Georgia Tech.
