Pitt heating up

The Pittsburgh football team is riding a four-game winning streak right now following a 27-20 win at Syracuse last weekend. The Panthers are 5-2 on the season, 2-1 in the ACC, 5-2 against the spread and 5-2 with the under.

Pitt has been pretty steady on defense this season, allowing just 22.1 points and 302.9 yards per game. Offensively, the Panthers are putting up 22.3 points and 390.9 yards per contest. Kenny Pickett is leading the team with 1,602 yards and eight touchdowns this year while Taysir Mack has 45 catches for 545 yards and two touchdowns. A.J. Davis is the leading rusher with just 287 yards and three touchdowns. Kylan Johnson is leading the defense with 33 tackles and five sacks.

Miami unable to build momentum

The Miami football team suffered yet another loss last weekend, this time a 28-21 OT loss at home to Georgia Tech. Miami is now just 3-4 on the year, 1-3 in the ACC, 3-4 against the spread and 4-3 with the over.

The Hurricanes are a solid defensive team, allowing just 20.4 points and 298.3 yards per game. Offensively, Miami is putting up 28.3 points and 410.6 yards per contest. Injuries have been an issue for the offense as both quarterbacks N’Kosi Perry and Jarren Williams are dealing with arm injuries and were questionable all week, but Perry is getting the start. They have combined for 1,957 passing yards and 15 touchdowns this season. DeeJay Dallas is the leading rusher with 486 yards and six scores while Brevin Jordan is the leading receiver with 28 catches for 438 yards and two touchdowns.

College Football Betting Trends

Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh has hit the under in five of their last six home games and in five of their last six conference games.

Miami

The Hurricanes are 13-3-1 with the under in their last 17 road games and 8-2 in their last 10 against a winning team.

Prediction:

These two have hit the under in three of their last four meetings and I think the under is the play again today. The Hurricanes have been disappointing this year, but they still have a good defense. I think they will give Pitt a lot of problems today. The Panthers have had close calls at home, but they were held to 17 points by Delaware and just 10 by Penn State. Miami can’t win a shootout, so the Canes will need their defense to step up to make this a game.

College Football Week 9 Prediction: Miami/Pittsburgh Under 42.5
