Against the Odds: Syracuse favored against Pitt

New, comments
NCAA Football: Pittsburgh at Syracuse Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

Pitt welcomes Syracuse to Heinz Field for homecoming this weekend but the Panthers aren’t expected to win, according to Vegas.

The Panthers opened up as a 4 1/2-point underdog to Syracuse and that line has grown to five in most sports books.

Probably about right, though I could see the argument that the line should be more in favor towards Syracuse. I actually like Pitt’s chances this weekend but make no mistake about it, the Panthers are the underdog here. The Orange have looked much better thank Pitt has this season and if you told me the line was more in favor of Syracuse, I wouldn’t be too surprised.
