Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets Vs. Duke Blue Devils Predictions
It hasn’t been a great month of January for the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets and is about to get a little worse. Duke is waiting at the Cameron Indoor Stadium to add another win while making the legend of Zion Williamson bigger and bigger. The Yellow Jackets are right at the middle of the ACC standings with an 11-8 record. They have dropped four of their last six games this month and are 3-3 against ACC opponents this season. Their last outing was a 63-61 win against Notre Dame as a home 1-point underdog.
Georgia is primarily a defensive team that will do all the work suffocating their opponents to get open layups at the other sides on fast breaks. The problem comes when they face talented teams on the offensive who won’t get rattled with a little defense. The Jackets failed to cover the spread in recent games against Louisville and Clemson. They lost both by double digits because their defense was good, but their attack was subpar all night.
Duke is one of those offensive teams that will take Georgia Tech by storm. The oddsmakers have overestimated Duke because Zion has become such a mainstream player this season. A team like Georgia Tech is the perfect scenario for a solid victory. The Devils can play any type of basketball, and they proved it in the recent three games. They played a defensive battle against the University of Virginia and Pittsburgh in the last two outings. Against Syracuse, it was more of a high scoring game, and despite the surprising loss they were just right there.
Duke averages 88.6 points per game, almost 20 points more than Georgia Tech on a nightly basis. On Saturday afternoon I think the Blue Devils are set to put on a show. They know they have a favorable schedule in the next few weeks starting with the Jackets, Notre Dame, St. John’s and Boston College before facing Virginia again. Take Duke to have an easy win against Georgia Tech. What’s the play? Duke.
