Georgia Tech Wake Forest Preview

reuters/yahoo
Wake Forest @ Georgia Tech
Georgia Tech has lost 5 straight and is now hoping they can play themselves into the NIT.
Wake Forest is on the bubble for the NCAAs and a second loss to Tech could cripple their chances. Georgia Tech does not appear to match up well with Wake's penetration and kick offense, but the Wake defense was the one who had trouble matching up with penetration last time. Tech made 9 more FT than Wake shot last time, had 4 less turnovers, and shot 54% from the field. PG Matt Causey is a game time decision for Georgia Tech after taking a hard fall against Duke on Wednesday. If he not 100% then it makes Paul Hewitt's job even more difficult in this one. Somehow, some way I think Tech pull this one out at home - they are due there.
Prediction: Georgia Tech

Georgia Tech Wake Forest line
With the uncertainty of Causey the line is probably very timid on this one, but some fans will also remember Wake beating Duke not too long ago. GT should be around -150, but they may drop to around -130 at game time.

Season: 59-17 (78%)

ACC: 30-10 (75%)
