I’m high on the Yellow Jackets this season as I think that Georgia Tech is getting comfortable in their new offense under Geoff Collins and this could be a Georgia Tech team that’ll go bowling again sooner rather than later. The Jackets started by taking care of Florida State in the opener, but Florida State is one of the more overrated programs in recent memory in the ACC in my opinion, and how UCF is only being asked to lay 7.5, even on the road is unfathomable. Georgia Tech’s best chance here is going to be to force opportunities and take advantage of them on defense, but UCF doesn’t give up much as the Knights are +27 in the turnover department in the last three seasons. The Knights bring a ton of production back on both ends, and if everything pans out the way it should, this will be a double-digit win for UCF. The Knights love playing against the bigger teams and I think Georgia Tech’s in trouble here. I’ll lay the points with the UCF Knights as my premium pick for this game.
