Georgia Tech faces Virginia Tech on Tuesday, February 23rd at Cassell Coliseum for an NCAA basketball ACC matchup.
Georgia Tech is coming off an 87-60 win over Miami in its last game on the road on February 20th. The 27-point scoring difference does not even show how one-sided that game was, as Georgia Tech dominated before the starting tip-off. Georgia Tech led 48-18 at halftime in one of its most dominating conference performances in school history. Georgia Tech has now won back-to-back games and is 11-8 on the year. Georgia Tech is also 10-9 against the spread this season. Georgia Tech's leading scorer so far this season has been G Jose Alvarado, who has scored 16.7 points per game for the Yellow Jackets. Georgia Tech as a team has scored 75.2 points per game and has shot the ball at a 46.9% clip from the field. Georgia Tech has also allowed 70.5 points per game to its opponents as well.
Virginia Tech has not played since February 6th due to COVID-19, and that was an 80-76 overtime win over Miami on the road. Virginia Tech needed a buzzer-beating three-pointer at the end of regulation to force OT and take down the Canes in its last game. Virginia Tech is still ranked 16th in the country and is 14-4 overall this season with an 8-3 conference record. Virginia Tech is 10-8 against the spread as well. Virginia Tech's leading scorer so far this season has been F Keve Aluma, who has scored 15.7 points per game for the Hokies. Virginia Tech as a team has scored 72.5 points per game and has shot the ball at a 44.7% clip from the field. Virginia Tech has also allowed 65.6 points per game to its opponents as well.
Virginia Tech opens as a 2-point favorite and the total is set at 138. I think this is a very bad spot for Virginia Tech, and I do believe rust will be a factor for the Hokies. The way Georgia Tech is playing, I have to take the Yellow Jackets, as I do believe they will pull off the minor road upset.
