UNC Tar Heels vs Pittsburgh Panthers Line & Final Score Prediction
The Week 11 college football betting line opened with Pitt favored by 9-points and has remained steady. The total in the game opened at 53.5 and has dipped down half a point to 53.
Bet on North Carolina +9 because…
North Carolina heads to Pittsburgh having played their best game of the season in their last. As a 21-point home dog versus the Miami Hurricanes, not much was expected from the Tar Heels. All NC did was keep the game close enough to only lose by 5, 19 to 24. If NC can bring momentum into this battle on Saturday, who knows?
Bet on Pittsburgh -9 because…
Pittsburgh is on a 2-game winning streak both straight up and against the spread. The Panthers beat Duke 24 to 17 as a +9.5 dog on Oct. 21. On Oct. 28, Pitt beat the University of Virginia 31 to 14 as a -1 home favorite. Pittsburgh is on a mini-roll.
UNC vs Pitt Line & Final Score Prediction
North Carolina might have played Miami tough, but it’s hard to see the Tar Heels keeping it close versus the Pittsburgh Panthers on Nov. 9. North Carolina is only 2 and 7 against the spread.
I must also question how motivated Miami was in North Carolina’s last game. The Hurricanes spanked Virginia Tech this past Saturday. Their minds might have already been on the Hokies.
Pittsburgh has finally gelled as a football team. The Panthers are 3-1-1 against the spread in their last 5 games overall. I think they beat North Carolina by more than 9 points on Thursday.
My final score prediction is Pittsburgh 38, North Carolina 13
