Over on the Syracuse side, they’re 3-3 this season. The Orange have taken out Liberty, Western Michigan and Holy Cross but dropped games to Maryland, Clemson and NC State. 

In the loss to the Wolfpack, Syracuse QB Tommy Devito had 300 yards with one TD and Moe Neal had 31 yards on eight rushes. Trishton Jackson had 106 yards with one TD on nine grabs. 

The Panthers are 6-0 ATS in their last six in October and 5-1 ATS in their last six road games. Pitt is 4-1 ATS in their last five overall and 9-4 ATS in their last 13 conference games. 

Meanwhile, the Orange are 4-0 ATS in their last four Friday games and 10-4-1 ATS in their last 15 on turf. Syracuse is 1-4 ATS in their last five overall and 2-6 ATS in their last eight after a straight-up loss. 

Well, they’re escaping by the proverbial skin of their teeth, but the Panthers are getting the job done this season. Pitt’s last three wins have come by one, three and three points respectively however so it’s been pretty tense. 

As for Syracuse, they had a couple of good offensive games (52 and 41 points) but were shut down by NC State with just 10 points. Comparing the two, I like Pittsburgh to eke out a cover here; should be another tight game though.
