As the analytical models had a Georgia Tech win as a virtual certainty for his or her game against Western Carolina, it really is back on the contrary end of the spectrum for the showdown with Ole Miss.
ESPN uses its FPI (Football Power Index) being an advanced analytical model to greatly help look at matchups and predict outcomes. In ESPN’s own words: “FPI is really a predictive rating system made to measure team strength and project performance in the years ahead. The best goal of FPI isn’t to rank teams 1 through 128; rather, it really is to correctly predict games and season outcomes. If Vegas ever published the energy rankings it uses to create its lines, they might likely look quite a bit like FPI.”
Although it isn’t as high since it was for the overall game against Clemson, ESPN’s FPI is giving Ole Miss an 88% potential for victory. That is clearly a pretty lot and Georgia Tech will probably need to play a whole game to provide themselves a go to stay this game on Saturday.
However, in comparison to another popular analytical model, the FPI is on top of Georgia Tech’s potential for victory in this game.
ESPN’s Bill Connelly’s SP+ system has Georgia Tech as near 28-point underdogs in this game, that is a pretty stark difference between your actual spread of 16. Connelly’s projected score for the overall game is 43-15.
It really is clear that Georgia Tech will probably need to play an excellent game to have even a chance contrary to the Rebels on Saturday & most models and analytics will not supply the Yellow Jackets any chance at an upset. It really is around them to show them to be wrong.
