College Football: Saturday, November 30, 2019 at 3:30 pm (Heinz Field)
The Line: Pittsburgh Panthers -9.5 -- Over/Under: 53.5
The Boston College Eagles and the Pittsburgh Panthers meet in college football action from Heinz Field on Saturday.
Boston College is sitting at 5-6 overall. The Eagles are 1-3 in their last four overall, beating Syracuse and falling to Clemson, Florida State and Notre Dame otherwise.
In the loss to the Irish, Boston College QB Dennis Grosel managed 63 yards with an INT, and AJ Dillon led the rush with 56 yards. Kobe White was the top receiver there on 29 yards from three grabs.
Over on the Pitt side, they’re 7-4 so far. The Panthers put together consecutive victories over Georgia Tech and North Carolina, but lost their last outing to Virginia Tech.
In the loss to the Hokies Pitt QB Kenny Pickett threw for 103 yards, and V’Lique Carter rushed for 33 yards. Tops in receiving there was Jared Wayne on 68 yards from four catches.
The Eagles are 4-1 ATS in their last five after a straight-up loss and 16-5-1 ATS in their last 22 conference games. Boston College is 11-4 ATS in their last 15 road games and 2-5 ATS versus a team with a winning record.
Meanwhile, the Panthers are 4-0 in their last four after an ATS loss and 7-2 ATS in their last nine in November. Pitt is 14-6 ATS in their last 20 overall and the under is 4-1 in their last five in November.
When the Eagles get the right matchup, they can really hang the points. They put up 31 against FSU, 58 against Syracuse, 45 against NC State, etc. Trouble is, they’ve had some tough matchups lately and have been giving up points at a really good clip too.
In any case, Pittsburgh is kind of all over the place on both sides of the ball; you never really know what you’re getting from week to week. I’m not super pumped about their offensive capabilities here though, so I’m going to tentatively take Boston College on a cover.
