The Duke Blue Devils had their game last week against Wake Forest cancelled due to Covid-19 and come into this game with an overall record of 2-6 (1-6 ACC) on the season after being defeated by the North Carolina Tar Heels, 56-24, on November 7th. Duke had no answers for the potent North Carolina offense and could not fight back after going into halftime trailing by a 42-10 margin. Duke was outgained by North Carolina by a 573-411 margin and committed two turnovers in the loss. Leading the way for the Blue Devils was RB Mataeo Durant who had 132 rushing yards & 1 TD on 11 carries.

Defensively, Duke is allowing their opponents to average 32.4 ppg on 415.5 total yards per game (237.5 passing yds/g; 178.0 rushing yds/g).

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets have had their last two games (Pitt, Miami) postponed due to Covid-19 and come into this matchup with an overall record of 2-5 (2-4 ACC) on the season after being defeated by the 4th ranked Notre Dame Fighting Irish, 31-13, on October 31st. Georgia Tech had trouble get anything going on the offensive end against the tough Notre Dame defense and could not fight back after the Fighting Irish took a 31-7 lead early in the 4th quarter. Georgia Tech was outgained by Notre Dame by a 426-238 margin and committed one turnover in the loss. Leading the way for the Yellow Jackets was RB Jahmyr Gibbs who had 61 rushing yards on 14 carries while also hauling in 49 yards on 5 receptions.

On the season, Georgia Tech is averaging 21.4 ppg on 373.7 total yards per game (206.3 passing yds/g; 167.4 rushing yds/g). Offensively, Georgia Tech has been led by QB Jeff Sims who has completed 55.7% of his passes for 1,346 yards, 8 TD, & 10 INT. Sims is also the 2nd leading rusher for the Yellow Jackets as he has 277 yards & 4 TD’s on 81 carries.  The top receiving threats for the Yellow Jackets have been Jalen Camp (20 rec, 290 yards, 2 TD), Malachi Carter (15 rec, 218 yards, 2 TD), and Ahmarean Brown (11 rec, 183 yards, TD).

Defensively, Georgia Tech is allowing their opponents to average 39.7 ppg on 471.6 total yards per game (268.9 passing yds/g; 202.7 rushing yds/g).

The Blue Devils are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 road games vs. a team with a losing home record, however, are just 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games. The Yellow Jackets are 6-16 ATS in their last 22 games overall and 3-10 ATS in their last 13 home games.

Both these teams of struggled this season but I am going to have a hard time backing the Blue Devils after watching them look lost on both sides of the ball in their recent game against the Tar Heels. Georgia Tech has not looked much better this season however, between the fact that Duke has struggled on the road this season and has committed 25 turnovers this season, I think the duo of Jeff Sims and Jahmyr Gibbs will do enough for the Yellow Jackets to pick up the win at home. Good Luck!
