Pitt is coming off an emotional hard fought overtime loss in South Bend against undefeated Notre Dame. Pitt had been playing better of late after starting the season with two straight losses, including one to Youngstown St. from the FCS. They had won two straight going in the Notre Dame game. They have covered three straight against the spread, bringing their record to 5-3-1 ATS.
UConn has struggled for the past month, having dropped four straight. Three of those four have been on the road. The lone home loss over that span was a 17-14 loss to Temple. The Huskies have also struggle mightily all season against the spread, going 2-5-2 ATS, and is currently in the midst of a 0-5-1 ATS run.
Pitt has been instilled as a 3 point road favorite. It is typically hard to bounce back on a short week after such an emotional loss. That being said, UConn has been playing terribly of late. Even though the Huskies play better at home, look for the Panthers to earn a victory and cover the 3 point spread Friday night. Take Pitt -3 so pick up sportsbook promotion codes.
