Before locking in your Virginia Tech vs. Georgia Tech picks, you should see what SportsLine expert Emory Hunt has to say.
Hunt is the founder and CEO of Football Gameplan, which has been supplying analysis of all levels of football since 2007. The former college football running back joined SportsLine in 2016 and has provided his followers with winning seasons in college and pro football.
Hunt is having another solid season with his point-spread picks for SportsLine members and has been especially zeroed in on these programs. Over the past two seasons, Hunt has a record of 7-1 on spread picks involving the Yellow Jackets or Hokies, which includes an amazing 5-0 mark on Georgia Tech.
Hunt knows in the off-season, the Yellow Jackets hired a new defensive coordinator in hopes of shoring up a unit that has been a liability in recent seasons. They changed alignment from a 4-2-5 to a standard 3-4 under new coordinator Nate Woody. But despite giving up fewer big plays and posting better overall numbers, the defense remains a liability. It allowed 480 yards of total offense in a 49-21 loss to Clemson.
Despite their defensive struggles, the Jackets’ vaunted option offense appears to be rounding into form. Quarterback TaQuon Marshall has battled various ailments, but is expected to play Thursday.
