TOM STRYKER’S FREE FOOTBALL SELECTION SATURDAY, OCTOBER 17TH
#113 PITTSBURGH (+12′) over Miami, FL at 12 PM EST
Off back-to-back one-point conference losses to NC State and Boston College, Pittsburgh will travel to South Beach and give Miami a scare on Saturday afternoon. Miami returns off its 25-point road loss at Clemson and this is going to be a difficult encore for the Hurricanes.
Technically speaking, this is a solid spot for the Panthers. As a guest checking in off a road game, Pitt has been worth a wager inking a reliable 31-20-1 ATS record. In this run battling an opponent that holds a team won/loss percentage of .501 or better, the Panthers own a lucrative 21-8-1 ATS mark including a solid 18-5-1 ATS in this set if they carry a team won/loss percentage greater than .250. Also, in the year of COVID-19, underdogs priced at +4 or more hold a respectable 64-32-1 ATS record including a powerful 17-4 ATS in this set if their opponent takes the field off a straight up loss.
Surely, the ‘Canes will want to bounce back off their whipping at Clemson last weekend. Unfortunately, covering this hefty number might be another story. In case you haven’t noticed, ACC teams have suffered a serious hangover after battling the Tigers. Since the start of the 2013 regular season, ACC squads have posted a shocking 21-33 SU and 15-38-1 ATS record after tackling the Tiger Paw. If our “play against” side is priced as a favorite or an underdog of +2.5 or less, this technical situation crashes to a disturbing 6-25-1 ATS including a woeful 0-6 ATS if they are laying double-digits.
The Panthers dropped a couple of heartbreakers to the Wolfpack and Eagles. Off those hard-fought blemishes, head coach Pat Narduzzi’s men will get over the hump and cash this ticket. Take Pittsburgh. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
