UCF runs over Stanford
UCF remains unbeaten after rolling past Stanford at home last weekend, 45-27. The Knights are now 3-0 on the season, 3-0 against the spread and 2-1 with the under.
The Knights have impressive numbers on both sides of the ball, as the offense is averaging 51.7 points and 604.3 yards per contest. Defensively, UCF is holding opponents to just 13.7 points and 253 yards per game. Dillon Gabriel is leading the team with 719 passing yards and nine touchdowns. Gabriel Davis is the leading receiver with 10 catches for 229 yards and three scores while Greg McCrae is the leading rusher with 258 yards and three touchdowns.
Pitt edged at Penn State
Pittsburgh is coming off a 17-10 loss at Penn State last weekend as a 17-point underdog heading into the game. The Panthers are now just 1-2 on the year with losses to Virginia and Penn State. They are 2-1 against the spread and 3-0 with the under.
The Panthers have struggled on defense in previous seasons, but have looked strong this year. They are giving up just 19 points and 303.7 yards per game this season while the offense is putting up just 14.7 points and 380 yards per game. Kenny Pickett is leading the team with 878 passing yards and two touchdowns, but he also has two interceptions. Maurice Ffrench is the leading receiver with 24 catches for 235 yards and a score while A.J. Davis is the leading rusher with 119 yards. Jaylen Twyman is leading the defense with 12 tackles and 4.5 sacks.
College Football Betting Trends
The Knights have hit the under in four straight road games and in five straight against a team with a losing record.
Pitt has hit the under in four straight home games and in 13 of its last 16 against a winning team.
The total is surprisingly high given the defensive numbers from both teams. The Knights are legit on defense and should be able to contain this poor Pittsburgh offense. I also think UCF will see its offensive numbers come back down to Earth a little bit by going on the road and facing a good defensive team in Pittsburgh. This game should be more of a grind for the Knights than usual and I think that will keep the scoring total down.
