- Away Team (Minnesota) Total: Over 27 Points (-110) – Despite the 6-6 record, the Golden Gophers had a pretty respectable offense in 2018, averaging 28.5 points per game. Tech, on the other hand, has allowed opponents to score 28.9 points per game on the year. The Yellow Jackets' rushing attack will probably kill a lot of clock, but if the Gophers fall behind, it could put Minnesota in a good position to chase the over. 

- Home Team (Georgia Tech) Total: Over 31 Points (-110) – Minnesota has yielded a miserable 170.7 rushing yards per game this season, which will play right into Georgia Tech's hand in this one. The Yellow Jackets are averaging an incredible 335 yards on the ground this season and their triple-option attack should have a field day against this mediocre Gophers unit.
