Why Bet on Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets?

Georgia Tech averages 67.3 points on 43.5% shooting. They have better numbers from the field at 49.4%. The team features better three-point shooters with a 33.9% percentage. Michael Devoe is expected to take charge of scoring duties in this game. The guard averages 18.0 points per game. Meanwhile, Jordan Usher is the only other player in the lineup to average double digits, hitting 14.6 points per game in 31 games.

Defensively, the Yellow Jackets feature an impressive three-point shooting defense. They hold teams to 31.8% from beyond the arc. This should help Georgia Tech maintain its 49.8% opponent effective field goal percentage or even hold the Cardinals to less if things go their way. The team can go toe to toe with Louisville in terms of shooting defense. The numbers are within striking distance for both teams, which makes the game more interesting.

Deivon Smith is the latest Yellow Jackets player to be ruled out of the game. The forward sustained a concussion in his recent appearance and is now out for the season.

Why Bet on the Louisville Cardinals?

Despite winning their most recent clash against Georgia Tech, there’s still a chance for this to slip away. Playing on neutral grounds also keeps the odds competitive for both teams. The Cardinals average 67.3 points per game on 42.2% shooting. They pose the bigger threat from the perimeter and the paint versus Georgia Tech. The team hits 50.5% of its attempts from short and mid-range.

Defensively, the side allows 70.6 points per game on 43.6% shooting. They have enough grit to keep shooting defense close to what Georgia Tech produces. The team keeps teams to 49.2% two-point and 35.0% three-point shooting defense. Although the side allows a marginally higher opponent effective field goal percentage at 50.5%, we look forward to the Cardinals putting pressure on the Yellow Jackets on Tuesday night.

Jae’lyn Withers is the latest Louisville player added to the injury report. Although he is a role player in interim head coach Mike Pegues’ system, his absence can affect the rotation. Nonetheless, core players Noah Locke, Malik Williams, and El Ellis are set out to take the helm once again.

Georgia Tech vs. Louisville Expert Betting Predictions

Both teams are in rough shape, making the matchup more interesting. That said, the Cardinals look like they have a deeper talent pool overall. Playing in Brooklyn might give them the sensation of homecourt advantage. Louisville did overcome Georgia Tech on the road in January, and the Yellow Jackets do lose by more than 7 points as underdogs. Nevertheless, covering the spread should be doable for Georgia Tech seeing how previous results panned out. Ultimately, we eagerly await this ACC Tournament contest headed our way.
