College Football Betting: LSU Tigers vs. GT Yellow Jackets

College football betting fans would not have expected Georgia Tech to be a 4 point favorite over LSU on the college football odds board last summer.

College football betting experts can tell you that the college football odds can flip in a short amount of time and this matchup is a prime example.  LSU was the toast of the college football betting world in 2007 as they won the national championship and were favored on the 2008 college football odds future board to contend for a repeat.

Instead college football betting backers of the Tigers were treated to a near total depletion of value against the college football odds as LSU finished with an overall college football betting record of 7-5 straight up and 2-9 against the spread.

Worse yet, LSU has virtually zero Chick-fil-A Bowl odds momentum as they “limp in” having finished the year 3-5 straight up and 1-7 against the college football betting number.  LSU was ranked in the middle of the pack on offense and in the upper third of the nation on defense.

Georgia Tech, on the other hand, has plenty of reasons to enhance their Chick-fil-A Bowl odds.  First year head coach Paul Johnson, after a successful stint at Navy, completely flipped Tech’s college football betting fortunes as the Jackets finished with a record of 9-3 straight up and 7-2-1 against the spread.

The Ramblin Wreck has plenty of Chick-fil-A Bowl betting momentum as they won and covered their last two games against Miami and hated Georgia.  Tech was a strong college football betting chalk with 5 covers in 6 attempts.

The Jackets two main Chick-fil-A Bowl betting assets are their defense and running back Jonathan Dwyer, who ran for 1328 yards and a 7 YPC average with 12 TD’s.  Tech has the college football betting intangible of playing a virtual home game at Atlanta’s Georgia Dome.

Another strong college football betting intangible is the renewed enthusiasm for the program from the fans, players, and administration.  Beyond that, LSU’s pathetic finish to the college football betting season cannot inspire much confidence from themselves or gamblers.

LSU and Tech are at so be sure and open an account today!
