*3 Star Play on Syracuse* This is a game that is hard to bet in this direction, but power ratings wise and situational spot wise I think it is the right play.

Syracuse isn't a good team. This isn't even really a play on Syracuse, rather it is a fade of Pitt as a big favorite. The Pittsburgh Panthers are 8-19 ATS in their last 27 as a home favorite. Their games against Syracuse in recent years have been very close.

Is the Pitt defense going to give the Syracuse offensive line all kinds of trouble? Absolutely. Can Pitt score a bunch of points? I think the jury is out here. Kenny Pickett hasn't been a very good fit for this offense, and Pitt generally is content to just win in ACC play and not win by a margin.

I realize Syracuse didn't look good against UNC (who is better than Pitt). Pitt also blew out Austin Peay (which means very little). I think this line is an overreaction to the first games of each team.

I'll grab the points.

Take Syracuse.
