NCAA Betting: Virginia Cavaliers vs. GT Yellow Jackets

Those who thought that Paul Johnson’s triple option wouldn’t work in the ACC have been proven quite wrong so far as the Yellow Jackets are one of the few teams left to have a perfect NCAA betting record this season.

They’ll look to stay perfect against the NCAA line when the Virginia Cavaliers (4-3 SU, 3-3 ATS) come pay a visit to Atlanta Saturday afternoon.  After a 31-3 loss to Duke at the end of September, the Cavaliers have won three straight games to claw back above .500.

The Yellow Jackets (6-1 SU, 5-0 ATS) have played solid offense and defense to reach a 3-1 conference record this far.  Virginia started the season with three straight losses against the NCAAF wagering odds before its recent three game winning streak both SU and ATS.

It is also interesting to note that they’re just one of a handful of BCS schools that are yet to be favored by the closing NCAA football line this year.  Virginia currently ranks dead last in the ACC in points scored, averaging just 16.9 PPG and it’s ranked 10th in total yards.

Things are slightly better on the other side of the ball where the Cavaliers defense is 9th in the ACC, giving up 23 PPG and 8th in total yards allowed.  Behind the strength of the best defense in the ACC, Georgia Tech has only allowed 11.6 PPG to date this season.  The Yellow Jackets are currently in first place in the ACC Coastal.

College football gamblers have noticed the Yellow Jackets defense has contributed to four of their five games going under the ‘total’ per the NCAA odds this year.  Last week, the defense held Clemson to 12 first downs and 249 total yards while forcing six turnovers in the Jackets 21-17 road victory.

Coming into this game, the Yellow Jackets are 5-1 SU against the Cavaliers all time in Bobby Dodd Stadium.  The NCAA odds find the Yellow Jackets as 11.5-point favorites in this game with a game ‘total’ of 37.  You can bet on this game and wager on Week 9 college football at Sportsbook.
