Pitt has been somewhat inconsistent scoring-wise this season, registering 20 points or fewer five times out of eight games. Still, they’ve usually been good enough defensively to keep themselves in games.
As for Georgia Tech, they haven’t found their offensive rhythm quite yet either, and they’re giving up a lot of points on the other side as well. I’m going to stick with Pitt on the cover here.
