A battle for first place in the Big East will get attention in NCAA online betting with ESPN 2 televising Pittsburgh at South Florida.
The Big East is not having a great season but the battle for first is interesting. Pittsburgh is a slight favorite in college football betting at Sbg global.
Flip a Coin
Finding the winner in this game may be tough as Pittsburgh is probably the better team but they are 1-3 on the road this season. Pittsburgh has a slight 4-3 edge in the all-time series. Pittsburgh was not able to win last week at Connecticut as they turned the ball over three times in a 30-28 loss. Dion Lewis is capable of breaking big plays but for the most part this season he has been shut down. He doesn’t even lead the team in rushing yardage this season.
South Florida won last week in overtime against Louisville. They got three field goals from Maikon Bonani and a 100-yard kickoff return for a TD by Lindsey Lamar. South Florida needs their special teams because their offense is not very good. Quarterback B.J. Daniels continues to make mistakes and is not someone you can depend on. He has 11 interceptions against 9 touchdowns this year.
Take the Under
The total on this game is 45.5 and with these two offenses it should go under. Pittsburgh scored a lot of points last week at Connecticut but that is not normal for them. South Florida rarely scores a lot of points and Pittsburgh’s defense is usually pretty good. Five of the last seven South Florida games have gone under the total and South Florida has a defense that is ranked 29th in the country in fewest points allowed.
