Pitt in ACC Championship
Pittsburgh has secured its spot in next week’s ACC Championship already thanks to a 34-13 win at Wake Forest last weekend. Pitt is now 7-4 overall and 6-1 in the ACC. The Panthers are 7-4 against the spread and 6-5 with the under.
The Panthers are putting up 30.1 points and 403 yards per game on offense this season, led by a ground game that is putting up 247.5 rushing yards per contest. Qadree Ollison is leading the way with 1,106 yards and 10 touchdowns while Darrin Hall has 888 yards and nine touchdowns. Kenny Pickett is the QB and has thrown for 1,695 yards and 12 touchdowns. Defensively, Pittsburgh is allowing 28.1 points and 404.9 yards per game.
Miami ends losing streak
Miami put an end to a four-game losing streak last weekend with a 38-14 win at Virginia Tech last weekend. The Hurricanes are 6-5 overall and 3-4 in the ACC. Miami is 4-7 against the spread and 5-5-1 with the over/under total. Miami is 4-0-1 with the under in its last five games.
The Canes are pretty strong on defense this year, allowing just 19.5 points and 274.5 yards per game. Their pass defense is allowing just 141.7 yards per game. Offensively, Miami is putting up 31.5 points and 377.3 yards per game this year. The run game has been the strength of the offense, led by Travis Homer, who has 801 rushing yards and three touchdowns. DeeJay Dallas is adding 570 rushing yards and five scores. N’Kosi Perry has thrown for 1,037 yards and 13 touchdowns in limited action.
College Football Betting Trends
Pittsburgh has hit the under in 10 of its last road games and seven straight road games against a team with a winning home record.
Miami is 12-3-1 with the under in its last 16 conference games and in 10 of its last 14 games following a win.
The total is being set quite low, as Miami hasn’t given up a lot of points this year. They haven’t allowed more than 27 points this year. Pittsburgh has scored over 27 points in three of its last four games and has a really solid run game. However, I think the Panthers will struggle on the road against this Miami defense. The Canes have been able to hold better offenses in check this year. I don’t see Miami doing a ton on offense to help get to the over.
College Football Prediction: Pittsburgh/Miami Under 47
