Following three NCAA Football Betting wins in their first three games Pitt caught attention. National rankings included the Panthers. But a 30-29 home loss to North Carolina State flipped the script. Subsequently, Pitt has been a difficult handicap. Gamblers find them nearly impossible to figure out. Since taking over as Pitt head coach in 2015 Pat Narduzzi has gone 40-33. And produced four minor bowl trips. Pitt has never been a serious ACC contender. Specifically, Narduzzi is a respected defensive mind. Problematic is the Panthers’ offensive production. For Virginia, Tech defense is the reason for their slide.
