Georgia Tech Virginia Tech Weather Watch 2008

Georgia Tech @ Virginia Tech
I would think Paul Hewitt has a right to be mad. In his team's last game they turned the ball over a season high 22 times and lost by 1. Then on Thursday, a home game with Virginia was canceled due to a leaky roof. Nevermind that Georgia Tech is paying their former football coach $1M per year for nothing. The Hokies have a distinct honor in the ACC; they are the only team to lose to Tech in Atlanta. The Yellow Jackets have been very good on the road though. Virginia Tech needs good wins like they had against Maryland and more importantly must hold serve at home. For Georgia Tech to win they need to take care of the ball (15 or less turnovers) and play good perimeter defense where they have lacked most of the season. Logic would say Virginia Tech is the better team and they are at home, but I like Georgia Tech to pull this one off on the road.
Prediction: Georgia Tech

Virginia Tech Georgia Tech line
The Hokies will be the favorite in this game and would peg them around -180. I figure Va Tech wins this one 6 or 7 times out of 10, but not this time.

St Johns @ Duke
This used to be a great game played in Madison Square Garden when the Red Storm had Ron Artest, but now the most underachieving school in the country is a shell of the Mark Jackson and Chris Mullin days. Throw in that Duke has lost two in a row and I am betting the house that Duke wins. The Blue Devils might have this one wrapped 5 minutes into the second half.
Prediction: Duke

Duke St Johns line
There won't be a ML on this game, but I would have to place it around -2000 if there was one.

Wake Forest @ North Carolina
Ty Lawson ankle watch continues as the Deacons travel to Chapel Hill to face North Carolina. The Tar Heels are now tied with Duke after watching the Blue Devils fall twice this week. Wake has had all week to prepare for this game, but lightning won't strike twice. I like North Carolina to win this at home comfortably by 8-15 points.
Prediction: North Carolina

North Carolina Wake Forest line
T
he spread should be around 10-13 points, but I doubt a ML would offered. I am thinking around -900 if one is.

Season: 52-14 (79%)
ACC: 26-9 (74%)
