Georgia Tech vs Florida State Prediction & Pick

It's tough to find anything that Florida State has done well during its slump. The Seminoles have struggled to keep things close over the last 11 games, proven by their minus-13.1 average scoring margin in those contests. It doesn't help they surrendered 82.8 PPG over that stretch — significantly above their season average of 76.7 PPG allowed (No. 326).

While Georgia Tech is far from an offensive powerhouse (68.5 PPG, No. 231), it has averaged 79.3 points over the last six games. The Yellow Jackets are also shooting 47.6% from the field and 41.8% from three-point range over their last three games.

I see their shooting success continuing against the Seminoles, who allow opponents to average 45.6% field-goal (No. 275) and 37.9% three-point (No. 348) percentages this season. Considering how Georgia Tech is also 7-1 as the favorite while FSU is 4-17 as the underdog this season, I like the Yellow Jackets' chances to advance.

Final Score Prediction: Georgia Tech: 74 | Florida State: 68

Georgia Tech vs Florida State Best Bet

As far as tonight's best bet goes, I fully expect Georgia Tech to cover the spread. Not only are the Yellow Jackets 8-0 ATS in their last eight games, but they've also covered in five consecutive ACC tilts. Meanwhile, Florida State is 1-8 ATS in its last nine games while failing to cover against nine of its last 11 conference contests.

With momentum also being on Georgia Tech's side, Josh Pastner's team will win this by at least a three-pointer.

Bet: Georgia Tech -2.5 (-102)
