Jackets’ upcoming Thursday night game with the Hokies.

Virginia Tech Hokies @ Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets – Thursday, September 26. Sport betting line: Georgia Tech -7.5

When the best online betting sites tackle this clash, they will readily point out that college football teams are not the same from week to week, especially in September. Of course Virginia Tech didn’t play well against Marshall this past weekend. Everyone knows that Virginia Tech was looking ahead to this game against Georgia Tech, one of the key battles in the ACC Coastal Division each and every season. When Virginia Tech has not won the Coastal championship over the past several seasons, Georgia Tech has been the team that has gotten in the Hokies’ way. Georgia Tech climbed past Virginia Tech in 2006, 2009, and last season to make the ACC Championship Game. In every other year, Virginia Tech has represented the ACC Coastal in the league’s title game against the ACC Atlantic Division champion. Virginia Tech’s level of performance last week against Marshall will get the Hokies blown out in this game against Georgia Tech. However, that’s part of the point: You’re not going to see Virginia Tech play that poorly or anywhere close to it. The Hokies have been working on their schemes and tactics for Georgia Tech for quite some time. You’re going to see wrinkles and adjustments that the Marshall game didn’t witness. The difference between a ho-hum game on the schedule and an extremely important game on the schedule is precisely what will elevate the Hokies to a much higher level of intensity and a much greater standard of execution on the field. Virginia Tech will be a very different team in this game, and that’s why the Hokies have such a legitimately good chance to win on the road in Atlanta.

The smart sports bet should lean to the Yellow Jackets for a few reasons. First, Georgia Tech overcame a 13-point deficit against a North Carolina squad whose passing game is far better than anything Virginia Tech can offer. Virginia Tech is a profoundly limited offensive team at the moment. The Hokies are thin at running back and untested on their offensive line. Georgia Tech will need to give up 24 or more points to be in danger of losing this game, and it’s very hard to see how Virginia Tech can score anything more than 17 points, perhaps 20 at the most.

The Yellow Jackets are a better team right now. They’re playing better, especially on offense. Their defense should be able to contain Virginia Tech’s offense. This all sets up well for Georgia Tech..College Football Predictions: Georgia Tech -7.5 Get a look at the latest odds for college football games in week five of the regular season here.
