CEN­TRAL FLORIDA over Ge­or­gia Tech by 3

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - 2-minute Handicap -

We’re not sur­prised the Game­cocks of Jack­sonville State were ‘cock a doo­dle doo’ last Satur­day in At­lanta with the Yel­low Jack­ets ar­riv­ing in an ornery mood af­ter blow­ing their sea­son opener, 42-41, against Ten­nessee. We could cer­tainly make a case for Paul John­son’s crew tonight in Or­lando as they hit Spec­trum Sta­dium (also known as the ‘Bounce House’) with a 4-0 ATS log as non-con­fer­ence road fa­vorites of less than 14 points and a 2017 stat sheet that would make our soon-to-be-re­leased mouth wa­ter: a +210 net yardage ad­van­tage while lim­it­ing foes to just 279 YPG. Yes, those numbers look im­pos­ing but three straight ACC con­fer­ence re­vengers could take the sting out of John­son’s Jack­ets – as does this lit­tle Play­book ex­clu­sive: win­ning teams in Game Two with a week of rest (UCF) are 32-17-1 ATS, in­clud­ing 8-3 ATS as dogs. How­ever, our main con­cern with the hosts is head coach Scott Frost’s 0-6 SU and 2-4 ATS mark ver­sus win­ning foes (7-1 SU and 6-1 ATS against .500 or less op­po­si­tion). None­the­less, we’ll ‘bounce’ with an­other Satur­day night home dog.
