Pitt basketball slight favorites over Montana in home opener

NCAA Basketball: Veterans Classic -Pittsburgh at Navy Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

Pitt dropped its first game against Navy on Friday, but wasn’t favored to win that game. On Monday, the Panthers will enter their first game of the season as a favorite.

It’s not big but Pitt is expected to narrowly win on Monday against Montana. The line opened with the Panthers as a 5 12 point favorite but as of tonight, that’s already down to three in a couple of places.

Pitt probably won’t be favored many times this season but they’re at least not the underdogs in this one.
