Saturday Night Football Picks: North Carolina vs. Georgia Tech

Tar Heels Vs Yellow Jackets Football

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets have used their 2012 Sun Bowl win over USC as a springboard to a strong start for the 2013 season as they have staked their claim as a top Atlantic Coast Conference Coastal Division contender. The North Carolina Tar Heels are a strong offensive team that is a threat to anyone that they face. The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets will host the North Carolina Tar Heels with a telecast on ESPN kicking off at noon ET.

Ramblin’ but Not a Wreck

Georgia Tech is 2-0 both straight up and against the spread with CFB odds as they are coming off a 38-14 win at Duke as 8.5 point road favorites. Tech dominated with a 469-254 advantage in total yards as Vad Lee threw 4 TD passes and ran for 1 more as he rushed for 76 yards. Tech’s option was devastating as they had the ball for 38:32 and rushed for 344 yards on 60 carries.

A Win and a Bye

After a 27-10 loss on opening night at the South Carolina Gamecocks the North Carolina Tar Heels scored a 40-20 home win over Middle Tennessee as 19.5 point favorites. Bryn Renner passed for 339 yards and a TD as UNC outgained MTSU 511-401. Last week the Tar Heels were on a bye week. The Carolina ground game has been one of the worst and must improve to keep opposing defenses in balance.

The Pick

North Carolina has covered just 1 out of their last 7 games on the road with just 2 straight up wins in their last 10 away games. North Carolina has paid out in just 2 out of their last 6 games at Georgia Tech and has lost their last 5 visits to Georgia Tech straight up. This series has gone over the total in 5 out of the last 6 meetings at Georgia Tech’s Bobby Dodd Stadium. Georgia Tech has been impressive and is the pick!
