Against the Odds: Pitt (predictably) heavy favorites against Delaware

For a while I was afraid I wasn't going to be able to find a line for Pitt's game against Delaware this weekend. Most books don't offer odds for FBS-FCS games, but I was able to dig up one.

According to this super-accurate page, Pitt is 24-point favorites against the Blue Hens on Saturday. My guess would have been somewhere around 20, but either way, the Panthers are expected to win big.

I'm hoping it turns out that way, but the Panthers haven't always had an easy time of things against weaker teams. The Panthers struggled with Old Dominion last year and flat out lost to Youngstown State two years ago. Keep in mind that both of those games were at home, too.

Pitt, of course, should win this one. With legit NFL talent, Delaware should have a hard time keeping up. But we've seen this dance before and if you're asking me to spot you three touchdowns and a field goal, that might be a bit much.

I'm not a betting man ... but if I were, I might stay away from this one.
