Miami is 3-2 SU and 2-3 ATS through its first five games of the season, as it looks to build off a 22-10 victory over the Duke Blue Devils as 3.5-point home favorites last Saturday, while going UNDER the betting total of 58.5.  The Hurricanes are getting tremendous play from true freshman quarterback Brad Kaaya, which is important to consider when looking over the college football betting lines, as he’s thrown for over 200 yards in three consecutive games.  It’s also important to point out that Al Golden has compiled a 21-10 SU record in October over the course of his coaching career.

The Hurricanes are a dangerous team if they hold the lead heading into half time, as they’ve captured 20 of 21 games when accomplishing that feat since Golden arrived on campus.  Miami has a major playmaker in running back Duke Johnson, who leads active players nationally in averaging 163.9 all-purpose yards per game.  The program has captured the last five meetings in this series by an average of 16 points, as it has held Georgia Tech to an average of 232 rushing yards per game over that span.

Georgia Tech comes off a bye week and will look to improve upon its 4-0 SU record, as it was last seen picking up a 27-24 upset victory over the Virginia Tech Hokies as 7.5-point road underdogs on Sept. 20.  The Yellow Jackets rank 10th in the country in gaining 292.0 rushing yards—behind only Boston College among teams in the Atlantic Coast Conference.  Defensively, the team has had six different players record an interception in 2014, which can’t be ignored when making your Week 6 college football predictions.  Georgia Tech is 0-3 SUATS when the betting line is between +3 and -3 since 2012.

The Yellow Jackets have turned all seven of their takeaways into points, which is something it must try to continue in hopes of covering this number at Bobby Dowd Stadium.  Through 14 games, redshirt sophomore quarterback Justin Thomas has 677 rushing yards, with 302 yards coming in his last two games.

Sports bettors will likely back the Hurricanes due to their 6-1 ATS mark when the point spread is between +3 and -3.
