Pittsburgh at North Carolina - 10/29/22 College Football Picks and Prediction

Click Here for the Latest Odds

The Pitt Panthers and North Carolina Tar Heels face off on Saturday in a college football showdown at Kenan Memorial Stadium. Pitt has beaten North Carolina the last two games they have faced off, and each of those games was in overtime. 

The Pitt Panthers come into this game with a 4-3 record overall and they are coming off a very disappointing loss. In the last game against Louisville, Pitt only scored 10 points, and that led to the 14-point defeat. Kedon Slovis had one of his worst games of the season completing 16 of his 29 passes for 158 yards, zero touchdowns, and two interceptions. Pitt overall is averaging 31.4 points while their defense is giving up 25.9 points per game. This team has much bigger expectations for Slovis, and he needs to be a lot better here. 

On the other side of this matchup is North Carolina who sits with a 6-1 record overall and they have gone 4-3 against the spread. In the last game against Duke, it wasn’t the most impressive game, but they were able to secure a 38-35 victory. Quarterback Drake Maye had a big game completing 28 of his 38 passes for 380 yards and three touchdowns. He also had 18 carries for 70 yards. North Carolina is averaging 41.7 points while their defense is giving up 32.4 points per game. 

Pitt is 8-2 against the spread in their last 10 road games. North Carolina is 2-5 against the spread in their last seven home games. The over is 4-1 in Pitt’s last five games. The over is 5-2 in North Carolina’s last seven games on grass. The over is 4-1 in the last five meetings played between North Carolina and Pitt. 

The trends point towards the over and there is going to be no shortage of scoring in this game. North Carolina is averaging 41 points per game and they are going to have no issue running up the score again here. Pitt’s offense is also good averaging over 31 points per game and they are going to have no issue running up the score here again. I expect both teams to get close to 40 points, and the over is going to cash. 

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
