10 Over/Under Picks for Georgia Tech vs Miami

New, 9 comments

Miami takes on ACC Coastal rival Georgia Tech at noon tomorrow. Let’s see how you’re feeling about Miami’s ability to light up the scoreboard and stop GT.

NCAA Football: Virginia at Miami Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Hurricanes will be taking on the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets in a ACC-Coastal showdown this weekend. N’Kosi Perry is looking to notch his second win of the season as the team’s starting QB. Miami’s (3-3, 1-2) season was saved last week with a gutsy win over the Virginia Cavaliers. Last place Georgia Tech (1-5, 0-3) enters the contest during a four-game losing streak, which includes a 41-23 loss to the Duke Blue Devils days ago. Geoff Collins’ squad is progressing. They set season highs for yards in each of their last two games. However, not one of GT’s statistically-topping benchmarks resulted in victory. Miami will look to pounce on this outmatched opponent and get their fourth win of the season.

N’Kosi Perry: 200 Yards Passing & 2 TDs

Against Virginia, Perry threw for 187 yards and was 16 for 27. He also tossed TD pass to Deejay Dallas. Perry’s signature moment in the game came when he ran a three-yard keeper into the end zone. Previously in the season, Perry threw for 422 yards and 4 TDs against the Virginia Tech Hokies. His big arm was on display in both matchups. Perry and the WRs couldn’t get on the same page last week when it came to the deep passing game. If they had, both Perry’s and the offense’s numbers would’ve ballooned. The Yellow Jackets are give up an average of 183.2 yards through the air. What kind of afternoon do you see Perry having?

DeeJay Dallas: 100 Yards Rushing & 14 Carries

I read this stat twice. The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets allow 237.7 rushing yards a game. Yes, that’s more than two football fields of yardage. DeeJay Dallas has been a threat as a runner and a pass-catcher all season long. Dallas has averaged 11 carries this season through six games. With the passing game still ironing out its wrinkles and GT’s history of being gashed, this may be the week to let this playmaker take the lead on the ground.

Brevin Jordan: 50 Yards Receiving & 1 TD

The self-proclaimed “slowest TE in the nation”, Brevin Jordan, finished last week’s game with 2 catches for 48 yards. The bulk of the yardage came on a 35-yard reception in the first half. His season TD total (2) probably pails in comparison to what Jordan and the fans imagined, but regardless of how inconsistent the offense has been, he continues to make plays. Jordan will have another good matchup this weekend.

K.J. Osborn: 50 Yards Receiving & 1 TD

K.J. Osborn is the clear-cut leading receiver in Miami. Against Virginia, Osborn caught four passes for 60 yards and 1 TD. Osborn averages 12.4 yards a receptions. Duke’s Jalon Calhoun had 4 catches for 68 yards against GT. North Carolina Tar Heels wideout Dazz Newsome hit the Yellow Jackets up for 8 receptions for 81 yards and 1 TD. Against primary receivers, GT has given up 50 yards or more in almost every game. Perry and Osborn will look to continue to complement each other’s skills on the gridiron this Saturday.

Explosive Plays: 3

Perry’s ability to create passing lanes with his scrambling and lack of hesitancy to go down the field is a great thing for this offense. When Dan Enos brought his scheme to Miami, we all believed we’d see more creativity and highlight-reel plays. The offensive line’s play and the lack of execution haven’t yielded those results consistently. K.J. Osborn, Brevin Jordan, and Mark Pope had plays of 20 yards or more against UVA last Friday night. Do you see the Canes matching that mark and continuing to attempt to stretch the field?

Points Allowed: 20

Last week when UVA wideout Joe Reed had a 72-yard kick return in the 4th quarter. He set the Cavaliers up deep into Miami territory. Just like several drives in the game, UVA settled for a field goal after their seven-play drive netted them 0 yards. The Canes bend-but-don’t-break defense in the red zone was pivotal last week. Georgia Tech averages 16.5 points per game. With Manny Diaz inserting himself back into the defense, this will be a great opportunity to put up a dominant performance.

Rush Defense: Under 100 Yards & Pass Defense Under 250 Yards

Dual-threat quarterback James Graham only had 4 passing TDs (5 total) on the season and his greatest statistical output was 15 for 35 for 206 yards against TD. Jordan Mason and the Yellow Jackets running game is the main spark the offense has. They average 162 yards on the ground. In their two closest games of the season (a win over the South Florida Bulls ad OT loss to The Citadel) they put up 181 and 183 yards on the ground. Miami allows an average of 77 yards rushing and 212 yards passing this season.

Defensive Sacks: 4

Gregory Rousseau is a beast. Against UVA, Rousseau and several other Hurricanes got in the backfield. The team sacked Bryce Perkins five times. James Graham has been sacked in every game this season. Surprisingly, the only game in which the Yellow Jackets didn’t give up more than one was against the Clemson Tigers. Last week, Graham was sacked 4 times. This may be the perfect setup for Jonathan Garvin and his fellow Canes to keep the sack party going.

Turnover Chain Appearances: 2

Creating turnovers is nothing new in Miami. Last week, it was Trajan Bandy who rocked the turnover chain after a Mike Hollins coughed up the ball on the Miami 20 yard line. James Graham fumbled the ball two times last week. He was fortunate to both miscues. He recovered his own fumble against North Carolina as well. He wasn’t as fortunate with INTs in that game. He gifted the Tar Heels defenders with two INTs. Georgia Tech has given the ball away two or more times in every game outside of the Duke Game. Look for the 305 chain to make an appearance this week.

Total Points: 27

Georgia Tech allows 32 points per game and Miami puts up 29 points on average. With Miami averaging 100 more total yards per contest than GT, this noon kickoff may help spark the second win streak of the season. With Perry at the helm, what are the chances the Canes almost match their season average.
