(Don't) Bet the Farm: Cardiac Hill's Pitt-Syracuse Game Picks

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Well, we're 1/3 of the way through the regular season and our guys have made pretty strong picks so far. Now, getting into the conference games, is where you'll probably see some of us start to slip up.

I was surprised to see that only one of our guys is going with Syracuse in this one. Mark, our contributor for all things ACC, is going with Syracuse and I expected more of a split with the dangerous passing game Pitt will be facing this weekend.

Some of this might be a historical thing for a few of us, even though that has nothing really to do with Saturday. Pitt just rarely loses to Syracuse and has won 13 of the last 15 games.

Homer thing? Nah. We've all gone against Pitt this year and most of our picks have been nearly perfect. In a total of 50 total games picked, we've only missed five.

Are all of us underestimating that or do we have this one mostly right? What are your picks for Saturday? Below are our official picks and the standings so far.

Anson (5-0): Pitt

JD (5-0): Pitt

Jordan (5-0): Pitt

Matt (5-0): Pitt

Stephen (5-0): Pitt

Corey (4-1): Pitt

Hokie Mark (4-1): Syracuse

Jim (4-1): Pitt

Mike (4-1): Pitt

PBS (4-1): Pitt
