No. 2 Florida State (12-0) vs. No 12 Georgia Tech (10-2)
Florida State is the lone unbeaten team in the nation, but after another less than impressive win they dropped in both the AP and BCS polls. However, they are still a 4.5-point betting favorite in the ACC title game facing Georgia Tech.
Tech has the nation's 4th ranked rushing offense and they have won 5 straight games including beating a top 10 Georgia team in the season finale. Their rushing offense has to play well in this game, as the Seminoles have a great passing offense led by reigning Heisman winner Jameis Winston.
Florida State has won their last 3 games by single digits and none of the teams they faced were in the top 25.
The Seminoles are riding the longest winning streak in the nation and that streak began with their win over Georgia Tech in the ACC title game 2 years ago.
In their last games Florida State beat Florida 24-19 and Georgia Tech beat Georgia 30-24 in OT.
Florida State is 3-9 ATS and they have an Over/Under record of 4-8 and Georgia Tech is 8-4 ATS and they have an Over/Under record of 6-6.

Winston has to forget about his less than impressive performance against Florida when he had 4 INT.
