Georgia Tech and Miami entered the game on Saturday at Bobby Dodd Stadium in Atlanta with 4-5 records.
It’s difficult to trust Miami with the point spread. The Hurricanes are 1-8 against the spread this season. The lone cover for Miami was in the season-opening 70-13 win over Bethune-Cookman in the season opener as a 49.5-point favorite. This is the third game this season Miami is an underdog.
Miami was a 6.5-point underdog against Texas A&M in September and against Florida State last week. After not covering the spread in its first three games of the 2022 season, Georgia Tech has covered in four of its last six. Georgia Tech has played its last five games under interim head coach Brent Key.
Georgia Tech and Miami are likely to start backup quarterbacks. Zach Pyron has received most of the snaps at QB in the last two games for Georgia Tech. Starting QB Jeff Sims has missed the last two Georgia Tech games. Tyler Van Dyke seems unlikely to play for Miami on Saturday. Jacurri Brown looks likely to be the starter.
