Against the Odds: Pitt an underdog to Duke this weekend

NCAA Football: Delaware at Pittsburgh Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Last weekend, Pitt was a big favorite against Delaware and didn’t come anywhere close to covering. Not only that, the Panthers came pretty close to losing the game outright.

This week, Pitt sees itself as a solid underdog against Duke.

The Panthers opened as seven-point underdogs but that has since come down to about five points (5 12 in some places).

Pitt as the underdog isn’t a huge surprise, I suppose. Particularly after this weekend’s games. While the Panthers nearly lost to Delaware at home, Duke crushed ACC foe Virginia Tech on the road.

Based on a line of five points, what do you think?
