Georgia Tech vs. VPISU: Is The Vegas Point Spread Predicting The Drama?

New, comments

Interesting tidbit of information to mull over as you sip your morning coffee.

From the Georgia Tech pre-game notes:

In his four seasons at Tech, Paul Johnson is 12-3 in games decided by five points or less. Since 2004 (Navy's first 10-win season since 1905) Johnson's teams are 25-10.

Only one of those three losses came at the hands of Virginia Tech, back in 2008. 

In 2008, Virginia Tech won 20-17 with the Hokies picked at -7. 2009 saw the opposite with Georgia Tech winning 28-23 and VPI was still -3.5.

2010 was the exception with the Hokies -12 and we saw the largest margin in the CPJ era between the two teams when the Hokies won 28-21 in Blacksburg.

This year, Vegas is pointing to yet another close game, Hokies -1. What, if anything, does this mean to you? Is Vegas accurately predicting DRAMA?!
