The Yellow Jackets are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 neutral site games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Utes are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS loss and 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The over is 13-5 in the Yellow Jackets last 18 games following an ATS win. The Under is 4-0 in Utes last 4 overall.
The Utah Utes are coming off an ugly loss, and it’s enough to make you pause here, but they’re the deeper, better defensive team here, and I’d assume they’re motivated to get a nasty taste out of their mouth. The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets don’t have a lot of guys who can create their own shot, and that’s going to be an issue against this Utah defensive pressure. I’ll lay the reasonable chalk.
