(Don’t) Bet the Farm: Cardiac Hill's picks for Pitt vs. UMass

Pitt football is set to return to Heinz Field on Saturday afternoon, when UMass comes to town. The matchup pits the Panthers and their stout defense against a Minutemen team that fielded the worst offense in the nation in 2020, averaging 3.0 points per game. The UMass defense did little to offset the offense’s issues, as it gave up 40.3 points per game. And as a result, the team went 0-4 on the season, with lopsided losses to Florida Atlantic, Georgia Southern, Liberty and Marshall.

Given all that, it should come as no surprise Pitt is listed as a 38-point favorite over UMass in this matchup, and the Cardiac Hill staff is heeding Vegas’ advice and going with Pitt.

Last season, Anson and JD predicted nine of Pitt’s 11 games correctly, while Collin, Jordan, Matt, Nick and I called eight of the games and Corey picked four winners. So who will come out on top this year? Stay tuned to find out.
