Georgia Tech Football: The Over/Under
This article is the next in a series of articles in which the Confidential selects the over/under for football wins in 2014. We’ll take a cursory look at the schedule and determine what we think is the point where folks will struggle to select “over” or “under.” We hope people will share their comments as to “why” they are going over/under. If you disagree with our over/under choice, of course, feel free to let us know too. The tenth team up: Georgia Tech. We are going with an over/under of 7.5.
Here is the Georgia Tech schedule:
|08/30/14||vs. Wofford||Atlanta, Ga.||12:30 p.m. ET|
|09/06/14||at Tulane||New Orleans, La.||TBA|

Likely losses: @ Georgia, Clemson, @ Virginia Tech
Likely wins: Wofford, @ Tulane, Georgia Southern, Virginia
Toss-ups: @ Pitt, @ North Carolina, Miami, Duke, @ NC State
Georgia Tech has been a bit underwhelming in recent years. Although they have had divisional success, that is as much due to the unbalanced divisions than Georgia Tech’s overall performance. This year is a tough schedule, with Georgia and Va Tech on the road, as well as trips to Pitt and North Carolina. Still, we think Georgia Tech can pull out three wins outside of the “likely wins.” Can they get four? The over/under for Georgia Tech is 7.5.
