Last year, there were almost 1,100 yards of offense and 118 points when these two teams meet up, and we are questioning the oddsmakers as to why this ‘total’ is so low. North Carolina still has a fantastic quarterback in QB Bryn Renner, and though his stats aren’t all that great this year, what would you expect out of a team that has played against one of the best defenses in America (South Carolina) and one of the worst 20 teams in the FBS (Middle Tennessee State)? Georgia Tech’s offense is still high powered, and there is no way that it isn’t going to get to at least 400 yards in this one. If that’s the case, you’d like to think that Head Coach Paul Johnson will have at least 28 on the board, if not a heck of a lot more with QB Vad Lee running the ship.
Five of the last six meetings that these two have played in Atlanta featured ‘over’ games, and three straight in this series have exceeded the number. For whatever reason, the oddsmakers just continue to not put up very high numbers when these two meet, when in fact, they should realize that these are two of the best five offenses for sure in the ACC, and the defenses are both only as good as their level of competition has been this year. Mother Nature had a bit to do with the way that UNC looked against South Carolina in Week 1, as did the fact that the Gamecocks, for all of their greatness on defense, aren’t a juggernaut of an offensive team. This one should easily fly into the 60s, if not into the 70s or 80s by the time it is said and done.
North Carolina vs. Georgia Tech Pick: Over 58.5
