Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets Football
Geoff Collins returns for his third year as head coach of the Yellow Jackets, following two consecutive three-win seasons. Fortunately for Collins, he has former four-star recruits Jeff Sims and Jahmyr Gibbs returning to start at QB and RB, respectively.
The sophomores both contributed in 2020 and should help the Yellow Jackets take a step forward this season. Oddsmakers expect just that, giving them a season win total (five) that's a full two games better than what the team managed a year ago.
See all of the odds for bets on the Yellow Jackets above, as well as their full schedule, depth charts, key injuries, team trends, against-the-spread (ATS) performance, and more.
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.
Last year, the Yellow Jackets were a bit better against the spread than they were straight-up, managing to cover in four of 10 contests. Using their game against Notre Dame as an example, the line was 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
With the second-worst defense but also the second-worst offense in the ACC, betting on Yellow Jackets’ totals was a mixed bag in 2020; overs went 6-4 throughout the season. Totals, or over/unders, are bets on how many points will be scored in a game.
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. Say you want to bet on QB Jeff Sims. If a book has his passing TD prop at 2.5, you could bet on him throwing over or under that amount.
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
Think the Yellow Jackets have a chance at surprising everybody and winning the ACC in 2021? 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.
