Miami football at Georgia Tech week 11 prediction
It’s difficult to trust Miami to bet on the point spread. Georgia Tech and Miami have both had mediocre seasons. The only ACC wins for Miami this season were versus Virginia and Virginia Tech who are both 1-5 in the conference. Georgia Tech won their ACC games versus Duke and Pittsburgh.
The Yellow Jackets defeated Virginia Tech on Saturday but lost to Virginia earlier this season. With both offenses struggling, taking the under seems like a good bet. The under has come in on two Georgia Tech games and four times in Miami games this season. Miami is averaging 24.7 points per game in 2022, Georgia Tech 17.4.
The Hurricanes and Yellow Jackets are the two worst-scoring offenses in the ACC against Power Five teams. Georgia Tech is 13th in the ACC averaging 16 points per game versus Power Five opponents and Miami is last in the conference at 15.2 PPG against those teams. At that pace, the under should come in.
When Miami wins this season it has been because of its defense. Miami is allowing 11.5 points per game in wins and 35.8 in losses. Georgia Tech is allowing 33.4 PPG in losses and 21. 3 in wins. With Miami and Georgia Tech both struggling offensively, expect a low-scoring game. The all-time series is tied at 13.
