The first key game on Saturday in college football odds is on ESPN as Georgia Tech hosts NC State.
The Yellow Jackets are 2-1 while NC State is 3-0 but it is Georgia Tech who is favored in college football betting lines since they are at home.
Georgia Tech may be 2-1 overall but they already have an ACC win and could go to 2-0 in the conference with a win. NC State has been a pleasant surprise early in the season and this one should be interesting to watch early on Saturday. The Yellow Jackets have an exciting offense led by quarterback Josh Nesbitt but NC State has a very capable quarterback of their own in Russell Wilson.
Points a Plenty – Is there any way that this game doesn’t go over the total at the Sbg global sportsbook? NC State has been rolling on offense and Georgia Tech seems to score at will. Neither team has shown much offense so this game should be very high scoring and go over the college football odds. The two teams have combined to score more than 200 points this season. The trends sure don’t hurt either when you consider betting this total. The Over is 9-1 in NC State’s last 10 conference games. 11 of their last 14 overall have gone over. Four of the last five Georgia Tech games have gone over the college football betting lines. The only concern with this total is that five of the last seven meetings in the series have gone under.
Numbers Favor the Wolfpack – The Wolfpack have some great trends for this game. They are 5-0-1 ATS in their last 6 games in September. They are 15-5-1 ATS in their last 21 games on grass. The Wolfpack are 11-5 ATS in their last 16 conference games. Georgia Tech is 7-1 against the college football odds in their last 8 conference games but they are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games. This is a bit of a show me game for NC State. If they are a legitimate contender to win the ACC this season then they need to get a signature win on the road and this game at Georgia Tech would qualify.
