Against the Odds: Pitt underdogs for Saturday's game against Syracuse

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

With two pretty unknown teams, I figured the line would be pretty close this weekend for Pitt's game against Syracuse. And it is.

The Panthers are underdogs, but Vegas expects a close game. The line started favoring Syracuse by two points and has since grown to three or three and a half.

That's not a huge shock, really. I do think the Panthers can win (and I'm picking them to do that) but Syracuse also gets the game at home, which mostly accounts for the difference. And with their passing game, it's easy to see Pitt again struggling to cover their talented receivers.

What do you think about the line? Do you see something different or is it just about right?
