Click Here for the Latest Odds

The Syracuse Orange will play the Pittsburgh Panthers in an ACC Game on Saturday afternoon at Acrisure Stadium in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

The Syracuse Orange are 6-2 (3-1) this season after they lost to Notre Dame by a score of 41-24 in their last game. Syracuse threw a pick-six on the first play of the game and it was downhill from there for the Orange. The Syracuse offense is averaging 32.6 points per game with 232.3 passing yards per game and 164.5 rushing yards per game. Garrett Shrader (questionable) has thrown for 1,636 yards, 14 touchdowns, and five interceptions, while also rushing for 373 yards and six touchdowns for the Orange this season. Sean Tucker has rushed for 758 yards and seven scores, while Oronde Gadsden II has caught 41 passes for 671 yards and six touchdowns for Syracuse. The Syracuse defense is giving up 18.4 points per game and 303.1 yards per game.

The Pittsburgh Panthers are 4-4 (1-3) this season after they lost to North Carolina by a score of 42-24 in their last game. Pittsburgh led this game 24-14 in the third quarter, but allowed UNC to score the last 28 points in the game for the loss. The Pittsburgh offense is averaging 30.9 points per game with 227.4 passing yards per game and 182.1 rushing yards per game. Kedon Slovis has thrown for 1,561 yards, five touchdowns, and five interceptions for the Panthers this season. Israel Abanikanda has rushed for 1,086 yards and 16 scores, while Jared Wayne has caught 32 passes for 572 yards and one touchdown for Pittsburgh. The Pittsburgh defense is allowing 27.9 points per game and 351.1 yards per game.

Syracuse is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games on grass and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 November games. The under is 5-0 in Syracuse’s last 5 conference games. Pittsburgh is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 November games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games. The over is 5-1 in Pittsburgh’s last 6 home games. The under is 8-2 in these two teams last 10 head to head meetings.

Syracuse has lost back to back games after starting the season undefeated and now their starting quarterback is questionable for this game. Pittsburgh has lost three of their last four games and really blew a chance to get a good win against North Carolina in their last game. I don’t like what I have seen in the last six quarters from Syracuse, so I am going to take Pitt in this game.

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