Point Spread: -6½/-108 Pittsburgh
5* Big East Game of the Year on Pittsburgh -6.5
Extremely motivated following 3 consecutive defeats, and further fueled by a 12-point loss at South Florida last week, expect Pitt to take care of business on its home floor this evening.
The Bulls haven't been the same team on the road. They are 3-9 when playing away from home this season and 6 of their 7 losses in true road games have come by 23, 28, 12, 11, 20 and 30 points. In other words, South Florida is far from immune to taking a beating on the highway. The Bulls are just 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games as a road underdog.
Pitt is coming off a very poor showing against West Virginia in which it only scored 48 points. That sour performance will especially light a fire under the Panthers, who are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games following a double-digit loss at home and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games after scoring less than 50 points in their previous game. Pound Pitt.
