ACC Tournament Pittsburgh VS Georgia Tech 3/7 Betting Free Pick

ACC Tournament Pittsburgh VS Georgia Tech 3/7 Betting Free Pick

Pittsburgh Panthers -2

The 2007 ACC tournament opens at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Tuesday with three games. In the nightcap Pittsburgh and Georgia Tech clash in a game that features a team on the NCAA tournament bubble and one that has to win the ACC to get in. Pittsburgh has had an awful season by their standards currently sitting under .500 at 15-16. They’ve been even worse at the betting window finishing the regular season at 12-16-2. Georgia Tech on the other hand are hoping that they are one of what would be a record 11 ACC teams to make the tournament. Georgia Tech is 17-14 on the season and a very nice 15-11 against the spread.

For this RideTheHotHand.com college basketball free pick we are going after the spread. The Pittsburgh Panthers are a 2 man team on offense. Senior forwards Michael Young and Jamel Artis average 19 and 18 points a game respectively. Offense is not their problem, it’s defense as they give up over 75 points a game good for 250th in college basketball. The last month of the season the Panthers offense has disappeared and when you are going to give up that many points you aren’t going to win a lot of games proven by them losing their last 4 and 5 of 6. On the other hand Georgia Tech’s offense just stinks. Their game is winning with defense. They have been in the top 50 in points allowed all season at under 67 ppg and that allows them to slow the pace way down and play ugly basketball with a chance to win in the end. Look for this game to be UGLY. These 2 teams may not break 120 points like their game 8 days ago that Georgia Tech won 61-52. We like a repeat of that game with Georgia Tech’s defense putting the clamps on Pitt, and holding them to under 60 points to keep their NCAA Tournament hopes alive in this must win game. THE PICK: Georgia Tech +2
