Georgia Tech vs FSU ACC Championship Game Betting Guide

Written by on December 3, 2014

There were always going to people who questioned the decisions made by the playoff committee as they set about the task of choosing the top 4. The grumblings have been pretty quiet so far, except for certain fans in Florida who cannot understand why the Florida State Seminoles are barely hanging on to the final spot when they have gone unbeaten all season. It is perhaps the manner in which they have done it that has left the committee unimpressed. Before you pick, check out the NCAA Football Odds now!

Why Bet on the Florida State Seminoles

The Seminoles have not played what anyone would consider to be a killer schedule, yet they have repeatedly had to fight and claw their way out of holes they dug themselves into. Last week’s game against Florida was a perfect example, as QB Jameis Winston threw 4 picks in the first half, setting up the Gators time and again. A Much better team would have buried the Noles early on, but the inability of the Gators to capitalize on the turnovers left the door open. That is how it has gone for Florida State all year, which means they really need to win the ACC Championship Game to ensure a spot in the playoffs.

Why Bet on the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets

They are in for a tough go of it against a Georgia Tech team that has put together a very impressive season. They are coming into this one on a real high, having just knocked off their in state rivals the Georgia Bulldogs in OT. Tech are not going to dazzle you with their offense, but what they can do is eat large chunks of time off the clock using their triple option offense. There is a big possibility that Tech will be able to frustrate Florida State and force Winston in making those critical errors once again.

My Expert Betting Analysis and Prediction

Georgia Tech have flown under the radar all season, so it’s no real surprise that Florida State is a 4-point favorite for this one. The Seminoles have not been very good ATS all season, going 3-9 on the year, which includes being 3-5 ATS versus conference opponents.Georgia Tech are 8-4 ATS on the season, but more importantly, are 6-1 ATS when playing a team with a winning record. These two have only met once before in the past three years, and it was Florida State winning SU, and Tech covering the spread. Florida State have found a way to win all year, and are likely to do so again this weekend. That said, I don’t think it will be by a very big margin if they are able to pull this one out, which is why I like Georgia Tech +4.
