The Football Over-Unders for 2015: Georgia Tech

This article is another in a series of articles in which the Confidential opines regarding the over/under for football wins in 2015.  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 next team up: Georgia Tech.  We are going with an over/under of 8.5 regular season wins.

  1. September 3 vs. Alcorn State
  2. September 12 vs Tulane
  3. September 19 @ Notre Dame
  4. September 26 @ Duke
  5. October 3 vs. North Carolina
  6. October 10 @ Clemson
  7. October 17 vs. Pitt
  8. October 24 vs. Florida State
  9. October 31 @ Virginia
  10. November 12 vs. Virginia Tech
  11. November 21 @Miami
  12. November 28 vs. Georgia

Likely wins: Alcorn State, Tulane, North Carolina

Likely losses: @ Notre Dame, @ Clemson, Florida State

Summary: Georgia Tech has a very tough schedule.  After Alcorn State and Tulane, where is the next “easy” win?  Virginia?  That is away.  By default, it could be the home game against North Carolina.  The other 8 games?  How about a road slate of Notre Dame, Duke, Clemson, and Miami… got to be tow losses there.  And what about the final four home games?  Pitt, Florida State, Virginia Tech, and Georgia.  Are two more losses that improbable.  We see the Yellow Jackets falling all the way down to an over/under of 8.5 regular season wins.

What do you think?  Over or under?  Let us know.

Prior discussions: Florida State.

  1. I have 9 wins for GT, with probable losses to ND, Clemson, and 1 more loss to either UGA/FSU/Duke/VT.

    I think ND is likely a loss because GT always starts years slow. For that reason Duke on the road is a dangerous game. I think Clemson will be really good this year, so I assume they lose to Clemson on the road. I think GT can easily lose to UGA/FSU/VT, but not all three or even 2 of three. GT should be on par or maybe a tad bit less from where they were a year ago. I think VT will be better, but the game is at GT, so that helps. UGA should be about the same, but again that game is in GT. FSU will be several steps from where it was, and the game is at GT. Odds are one of those 3 or Duke beats GT. GT should win the rest. GT goes 9-3, with likely two losses against none coastal teams, wins the division. Replays Clemson in the ACC title game, and her is my shocker pick. Clemson goes in 12-0, looking for a playoff spot and GT knocks them off on the rematch, knocking the ACC out of the playoffs.
