Duke has some pretty good wins thus far but they have dropped their conference opener so they sit as the only team in their division without an ACC win. They have had two weeks for prepare for this one and it might make a difference because that option offense is tricky to say the least.
The Yellow Jackets are not having the season they want but they have scored 60+ points in back to back weeks proving that option offense can still be pretty lethal. This will be a challenge though as Duke has a sneaky good defense.
Duke Blue Devils
Duke is looking to get back on track after getting beaten by Virginia Tech a couple of weeks ago. The game saw the return of Daniel Jones at quarterback but he was not super sharp. He is probably going to have to lead a bunch of scoring drives in this one.
With Jones at the controls the Blue Devils have a chance at trading scores with GT but the offense has not been humming this season. There were high expectations of Jones and the offense under coach Cutcliffe but we have yet to see that.
This is a critical game. Even though the Blue Devils are not really expected to challenge Miami for the top spot in the ACC Coastal, starting 0-2 just looks bad especially for a team that only needs two more wins to get bowl eligible
Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets
When you score 60+ points in back to back weeks it forces foes to take notice. Duke has had an extra week to prepare for Georgia Tech but there is unlikely to be any new wrinkles to the attack. They do what they do and when it works…watch out.
Georgia Tech is the top rushing team in the nation averaging 373ypg on the ground. Last week against Louisville TaQuon Marshall, the trigger man rushed for 175 yards and he is doing a great job getting others involved too.
I was hot on GT coming into the season but back to back to back losses made me second guess my opinion. Now I am warming up to them again but the train might have sailed in terms of value. This is a game they should win.

This is one of the more interesting lines as it seems to have little reflection on what we have seen so far this season. It is always interesting to look at GT against teams in their division as they are more used to their special brand of offensive football. Duke has covered four straight, winning three.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Georgia Tech -2
This line has come down a little bit since it opened and so has the total. I am guessing that is because some are impressed with what they have seen from Duke on the defensive side of the ball. In all those covers it seems like the Blue Devils have done a pretty good job limiting the Yellow Jackets on the ground. .
In this one I don’t like them coming off a loss and Jones not looking like much of a difference maker. They might have a good plan for defending the option but eventually Georgia Tech is going to bust through and put up some points. Maybe not 60+ again but enough to win the game.
