In a little Friday night college football action the Pittsburgh Panthers travel to the carrier Dome to take on the Syracuse Orange. College football odds are at Top Bet sportsbook.
Pittsburgh is coming off of their bye week and is also riding a two-game winning streak. They got back on the winning track after two awful losses to start the season. Their big win of the season so far came against Virginia Tech who will soon be a conference fow of theirs when Pittsburgh joins the ACC next season. In this game Pittsburgh needs quarterback Tino Sunseri and running back Ray Graham to come up big and start to play consistently game and game out. Pittsburgh’s defense is average at best although they’re coming off of a great performance versus an inferior opponent in their last game.
Syracuse also enters this Friday night contest off of a bye week. The Orange currently sit with a record of 1-3 and their loan when came against an inferior opponent in Stony Brook. In their last game which was a loss to Minnesota they could not get going on offense as quarterback Ryan Nassib was constantly under pressure by the Golden Gopher defense. Syracuse will need to sure things up on the offense line going into tonight and need to hope for a performance from their defense as well. Syracuse can get after the quarterback in spurts and will be looking to do so tonight in order to slow down Tino Sunseri and the Pittsburgh offense.
This is a tricky game to predict because Syracuse normally plays pretty well at home. However, we think Pittsburgh has totally rebounded from their early-season woes and we look for Pittsburgh to cover the modest point spread in this game at best online sportsbooks.
