The Pittsburgh Panthers will play the Virginia Cavaliers in an ACC Game on Saturday afternoon at Scott Stadium in Charlottesville, Virginia.

The Pittsburgh Panthers are 5-4 (2-3) this season after they defeated Syracuse by a score of 19-9 in their last game. Pittsburgh held Syracuse to 145 total yards and held them to 3-14 on third down attempts in the win. The Pittsburgh offense is averaging 29.6 points per game with 221.7 passing yards per game and 179.8 rushing yards per game. Kedon Slovis has thrown for 1,737 yards, five touchdowns, and six interceptions for the Panthers this season. Israel Abanikanda (questionable) has rushed for 1,086 yards and 16 scores, while Jared Wayne has caught 38 passes for 674 yards and one touchdown for Pittsburgh. The Pittsburgh defense is giving up 25.8 points per game and 328.2 yards per game.

The Virginia Cavaliers are 3-6 (1-5) this season after they lost to North Carolina by a score of 31-28 in their last game. Virginia had a 21-17 lead in the third quarter, but couldn’t get enough stops against the UNC offense down the stretch. The Virginia offense is averaging 17.8 points per game with 228.7 passing yards per game and 137.7 rushing yards per game. Brennan Armstrong has thrown for 2,058 yards, six touchdowns, and 10 interceptions, while also rushing for 417 yards and six touchdowns for the Cavaliers this season. Perris Jones (questionable) has rushed for 365 yards and two touchdowns, while Keytaon Thompson (questionable) has caught 53 passes for 579 yards for Virginia. The Virginia defense is allowing 22.6 points per game and 353.3 yards per game.

Pittsburgh is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 November games and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 road games. The over is 5-2 in Pittsburgh’s last 7 games. Virginia is 9-3 ATS in their last 12 conference games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games. The under is 6-1-1 in Virginia’s last 7 home games. The road team is 5-1-1 ATS in these two teams last 7 head to head meetings.

Virginia has really struggled this season and comes into this game with only one conference win. Pittsburgh has had some issues this year, but is one win away from bowl eligibility. Virginia was very close to getting two wins in their last two games, but couldn’t close the game out in either game. I like Virginia with the points at home.
