Georgia Tech Vs. Virginia Tech Odds Update: Yellow Jackets Remain Slight Underdogs

Georgia Tech remains +1 underdogs against Virginia Tech in a nationally televised game that will determine the course of the rest of their season.

The Hokies have dominated the ACC Coastal Division since its creation in 2005, winning it four of its first six years. Under Paul Johnson, the Yellow Jackets have emerged as their biggest threat amid a group of primarily basketball-focused schools. 

His triple-option offense has confounded the ACC since he brought it with him from Navy in 2007, but teams with a week off to prepare for it have traditionally performed better against it. Indeed, the Hokies, who haven't played since narrowly defeating Duke on Oct. 29, have tweaked their starting line-up to prepare for Georgia Tech's ground-heavy attack.

Offensively, sophomore QB Logan Thomas has emerged as a reliable starter. He hasn't been a star, throwing for only 1,934 yards while completing 60.2% of his passes, but, for the most part, he's been able to avoid critical mistakes, averaging less than one interception a game.

Instead, junior RB David Wilson has been the centerpiece of Virginia Tech's offense, rushing for 1,185 yards on 6.3 yards a carry with 7 TD's for the season.

With both teams looking to run the ball, the over/under for the game is only 50 points.
