The Line: Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets -1 -- Over/Under: 48.5
The NC State Wolfpack and the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets meet in college football action from Bobby Dodd Stadium on Thursday.
NC State is sitting at 4-6 so far. The Wolfpack have taken out East Carolina, WCU, Ball State and Syracuse but otherwise lost to WVU, Florida State, Boston College, Wake, Clemson and Louisville.
In the loss to Louisville, NC State QB Devin Leary managed 243 yards with two TDs and one INT, and Zonovan Knight had 61 yards rushing. Emeka Emezie added 90 yards on eight receptions and one touchdown.
Over on the Georgia Tech side, they’re 2-8 this year. The Jackets are riding a three-game losing streak right now, falling to Pittsburgh 20-10, Virginia 33-28 and Virginia Tech 45-0 during that span.
In the loss to Virginia Tech, Georgia Tech QB James Graham posted 43 yards with two INTs, and Adonicas Sanders added two catches for 22 yards. Christian Malloy and Jamious Griffin each rushed for 21 yards there also.
The Wolfpack are 4-1 ATS in their last five Thursday games and 2-5 ATS versus a team with a losing record. NC State is 1-5 ATS in their last six on grass and 0-4 ATS in their last four conference games.
Meanwhile, the Jackets are 8-20 ATS in their last 28 after an ATS loss and 7-18-1 ATS in their last 26 on grass. GT is 2-6 ATS in their last eight after a straight-up loss and 2-6 ATS in their last eight Thursday games.
NC State is on a four-game losing streak right now and just not looking very good. As a matter of fact, in each of their last six games they’ve eclipsed 13 points just twice, scoring 20 against Louisville and 24 against Boston College—both losses still.
Georgia Tech has had a few offensive outbursts here and there, but they’re not a high-scoring team either. There’s not a whole lot of intrigue here but I’m taking NC State on a slim cover/win if they can wake up that offense.
