The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets head into this contest on an eight-game winning streak. The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets are averaging 75.6 points on 47.5 percent shooting and allowing 70 points on 45.4 percent shooting. Moses Wright is averaging 17.5 points and eight rebounds while Jose Alvarado is averaging 15.4 points and 3.5 rebounds. Michael Devoe is the third double-digit scorer and Jordan Usher is grabbing 4.2 rebounds. The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets are shooting 35.1 percent from beyond the arc and 73 percent from the free throw line. The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets are allowing 36.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 28.8 rebounds per game.
The Florida State Seminoles look for another win after beating North Carolina on Friday. The Florida State Seminoles are averaging 79.6 points on 47.2 percent shooting and allowing 70.1 points on 40 percent shooting. M.J. Walker is averaging 13.1 points and 2.6 rebounds while RaiQuan Gray is averaging 12.4 points and 6.9 rebounds.

The Yellow Jackets are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Saturday games and 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Seminoles are 11-5-3 ATS in their last 19 neutral site games and 0-4-1 ATS in their last 5 Saturday games. The over is 4-0-1 in Yellow Jackets last 5 Saturday games. The over is 11-3-1 in Seminoles last 15 overall. The underdog is 22-10 ATS in the last 32 meetings.
The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets have the rest advantage here and did beat FSU back in January, but I'm not confident their offense can have success on the big stage against this Noles defense. The Florida State Seminoles have been the more consistent team all season, and they're allowing just 36.9 percent shooting from the field in their last five games. I have more confidence in Florida State and that defense on the big stage. I'll lay the reasonable chalk.
