NCAA Football Betting: M State Bulldogs vs. GT Yellow Jackets

Points will be at a premium this Saturday when Paul Johnson’s Yellow Jackets (2-1 SU, 2-0 ATS) play host to Sly Croom’s Bulldogs (1-2 SU, 1-1 ATS).

The Bulldogs are coming off an ugly 3-2 home loss to Auburn in their SEC opener but were able to cover the 10-point spread for college football betting fans. Georgia Tech is also coming off of a tough loss to Virginia Tech where they outgained the Hokies by 140 yards but lost 20-17.

Last season, Mississippi State reached just its second bowl game of the decade and Sylvester Croom looked like he had turned the program around until a season opening loss to Louisiana Tech brought back doubts about his efficacy as a head coach.

The offense has to improve off of their performance last week where they only amassed six first downs and 116 total yards and went 0-14 on third down conversions. The defense was able to come up large though and forced three turnovers to allow the Tigers just 14 first downs and three points.

With a solid defense and a marginal offense, it’s no surprise to NCAA football betting followers that both of the Bulldogs games against FBS opponents have gone under the ‘total’ per the closing NCAA odds. Paul Johnson again looks like he is laying the seeds of a winning foundation at Georgia Tech after their first three games.

The Yellow Jackets lost 24 lettermen and 13 starters from last season and didn’t have high expectations coming into 2008, but Johnson has once again risen to the occasion.

Sophomore QB Josh Nesbitt is starting to get a handle on the new option-oriented system and although he committed three turnovers in the game, Nesbitt rushed for 151 yards and threw for 109 while providing two touchdowns.

Gamblers who bet on college football are firmly aware that both of their ACC games this season have gone under the ‘total’ according to the football betting lines. Right now, NCAA odds makers have the Yellow Jackets as 8.5-point home favorites.
