Georgia Tech will look to bounce back in a big way this Saturday, as they are on the road against the Duke Blue Devils coming off of a rough outing against Pittsburgh this past weekend. The Yellow Jackets do have all the tools to get the job done here, and the books agree, as they come in here as sizeable 4.5 point favorites.
The Duke Blue Devils are another team who will look to bounce back off of a loss last time out getting blown out by UNC in that last game by a score of 38-7. If Duke wants to find success here they will really need to tighten up the secondary giving up big plays in bunches against UNC and a repeat of that performance in the secondary could leave the home fans going home disappointed.
Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets
Even though I have some concerns about the Duke secondary I have all those same concerns about this Yellow Jackets secondary and that may very well be the main reason that this total has continued to tick up throughout the week.
Georgia Tech QB Jeff Sims should be able to give the Duke defense fits here, as he has found plenty of success in the passing game and is a very dynamic runner and I just do not see how Duke slows him and this Yellow Jackets offense down.
Duke Blue Devils
Speaking of quarterbacks, Gunnar Holmberg has also been unreal this year in terms of his accuracy completing well over 70% of his passes and racking up over 1300 yards passing in the process and he is once again in a great spot to put up a great performance.
That ball is likely to go to WR Jake Bobo who already has 40 receptions and nearly 500 yards receiving and given this matchup I could see him breaking a few off here for big yardage even though he is a lower average depth of target kind of guy.

Like I previously said this total has been ticking up and up all week and that makes all the sense in the world to me as this game has points written all over it. These secondaries on both sides do not look very good at all, and now that the Yellow Jackets have their QB1 back from injury I really see this one going over the total with both of these teams able to contribute to this total.
