Yellow Jackets 2023 Schedule & Betting Odds
Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets Season Preview
Georgia Tech's football team is gearing up for the 2023 season with high hopes under the leadership of their head coach, Brent Key, who is entering his second year with the team. Last season, the Yellow Jackets finished with a 5-7 overall record and a 4-4 record in the ACC. Despite facing challenges, the team showed promise under Key's guidance, finishing the year with a strong 4-4 record in the final eight games.
On the offensive side, Georgia Tech is looking to improve significantly, especially in the passing game. Quarterback Jeff Sims has departed, and now the team is expected to rely on Zach Pyron and former Texas A&M quarterback transfer Haynes King to lead the passing attack. Additionally, the team has strengthened its receiving corps with the addition of Dominick Blaylock from Georgia and Christian Leary from Alabama. The offensive line, with four returning starters, is expected to provide more protection and support to the quarterbacks, allowing them to flourish.
In the running game, Georgia Tech is in a good position with Trey Cooley from Louisville and four-year veteran Dontae Smith, who has been a consistent performer for the team. The running back group looks promising and will play a crucial role in the team's offensive strategy.
On the defensive side, the Yellow Jackets' main focus is on improving against the run. The team had difficulties stopping opponents' rushing attacks in the previous season. The addition of transfers Braelen Oliver from Minnesota and Andre White from Texas A&M is expected to bolster the linebacking unit. The secondary, led by LaMiles Brooks, is considered one of the ACC's best and will be vital in supporting the defensive efforts.
The schedule for the 2023 season includes challenging games against ranked opponents and potential-to-be-ranked opponents. Key matchups include the season opener against Louisville in the Chick-fil-a Kickoff Game, where both teams have former players turned head coaches (Brent Key for Georgia Tech and Jeff Brohm for Louisville). Another notable matchup is against Ole Miss, where Georgia Tech will seek to avenge a loss from the previous season.
With a strong finish in the previous year and strategic additions to the roster, the Yellow Jackets are optimistic about their chances in the 2023 season. The team's performance in key areas, such as the passing game and run defense, will be crucial in determining their success. Georgia Tech fans are eager to see how the team progresses under Coach Brent Key and are hopeful for a successful and competitive football season.
Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets Point Spreads
Point spread bets are the most common type of bets made on college football. Point spreads are set by sportsbooks to handicap a game based on how many points they expect a team to win or lose by. Therefore, teams can cover the spread even while losing the game, provided they lose by less than the spread as underdogs.
Using a past game against Notre Dame as an example, the line is as follows:
- Georgia Tech +20.5 (-110)
- Notre Dame -20.5 (-110)
Even though the Yellow Jackets lost the game, 31-13, their margin of defeat (18) was less than the 20.5 points that books were giving them. This means that Georgia Tech point spread bettors were winners since they covered the spread.
Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets Over/Unders
Using the same contest against Notre Dame as an example, the total was set at 58.5, and bettors could place a bet on whether the teams would combine for more (over) or fewer (under) points than that. With the 31-13 final, under bettors had their tickets cashed.
In the case of whole number totals, if the final score lands exactly on the number, then both over and under bettors tie. That's called a “push,” and both sides get their original bet back.
Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets Moneylines
The most simple type of bet one can place on the Yellow Jackets is a moneyline bet. Here, the size of the win is irrelevant: If Georgia Tech wins the game, so do moneyline bettors.
The easiest way to understand moneyline odds is to think of a hypothetical $100 bet size. When teams are expected to lose, their odds will have a plus sign in front of them, and the number is the amount a bettor would profit with a $100 bet on that team. Teams expected to win will have minus odds, and this number is how much a bettor needs to risk for a $100 profit. The larger the number, the more likely sportsbooks think the favorite is to win.
Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets Props
In case you want to bet only on a certain player, you could place a proposition, or prop, bet on your favorite Yellow Jacket.
Props work a lot like over/unders, but with a ton of options. You could bet on any number of individual statistics, including yardages, touchdowns, completed passes and more.
Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets Futures
You can place a futures bet on it and be paid out very well if it does happen. A futures bet is any bet that’s based on an entire season, whether on a team or a player.
Other Yellow Jackets futures you could wager on include the total number of team wins, odds to win the ACC, bets on individual players to win the Heisman, and more.
