Pitt is 1-4 against the spread in their last five games. The over is 5-0 in Virginia Tech’s last five games. The over is 5-1 in Pitt’s last six home games against a team with a losing road record. The under is 5-1 in Pitt’s last six games after allowing more than 90 points in their previous games. The over is 4-1 in the Hokies last five games following an against the spread win. 

Pitt’s offense has been better as of late, and their offensive success is going to help push this game total higher The over is 5-0 in Virginia Tech’s last five games and that trend will move to 6-0 in this one.  I expect this game is going to be higher-paced, and that will lead to this game going well over the total. Back the over.
