Guys i dont do this much, i usually just troll around look for the hot cappers here but i think this line is way off.....Pitt -2, Pitt basically has to win out and this is totally a different team from the beginning of the season. This will most likely be a huge public come tomorrow but the truth of the matter is, USF 2nd worst 3-pt shooting team in the big east, Freshman guard (Collins) will guard either woddell or gibbs, Robinson will match up with Gillchrist, where will the scoring come from? Its desperation time for Pitt for the NCAA tournament and not to mention a top 15 team before Woddell went down and also went into WVU and won outright as a 6 pt dog. Better team wins by double digits!!!!

$550-500 Pitt -2

*Note I'm usually only $50-100 bettor

I think they could do some damage in the big rast tournament. Good luck on your play.

It's scary because they remind me of UCONN last year at this time, plus there schedule is very favorable down the stretch. No look ahead spot with Seton Hall 4 days away. This is also a team without Woodall hung in at Syracuse. I just hope Coach Dixon keeps his guys out of Mons Venus in Tampa hahaha

i can see this a big slip-up spot for my panthers

to make the tourney I think they need to split these next 2 at USF/SH win their home games and finish 8-10 in big east. hate the idea of suddenly being a road fav against a team that has lost just 1 in conference at home and was just brutally embarrassed on national tv.

really horrible spot for pitt imho but i really hope you're right!

After looking at the schedule last night and hate labeling this a game of the year, but lets look at who USF beat at home:


Connecticut 5-6 5 15-8
Seton Hall 4-7 6 15-8
Rutgers 4-7 6 12-12
St. John's 4-7 6 10-13
Villanova 4-8 6.5 11-13
DePaul 2-9 8 11-12
Providence 2-10 8.5 13-12

All bottom 8 teams in the Big East, against top tier teams in the big east which i feel Pittsburgh is USF has lost by 11+ points and have went 0-4, i forgot who the commentator was for the big east game saturday at georgetown but he hit the nail on the head, USF's conference record is a little bit inflatted at 6-4 due to the factor of the easy schedule they have had against bottom feeders in the big east. THey have trouble scoring at 303rd in the nation and a very bad FG % at 168th in the nation. It wouldnt surprise me to see USF got 1-7 or 2-6 down the stretch with wins against Providence or Villanova. Only slip up i see from pitt here is if they sleep walk through this game.

PITT's not a bottom feeder in the Big East???

Pitts record reflects a bottom feeder but I feel they are the 4th or 5th best team in the big east now since they are healthy and will make the NCAA tourney

I took Pitt on this too. Lesson learned: Don't bet on a one man team. Tray Woodall was held to 11 points. That's the difference here.

If Woodall is held to under 20 this team will struggle. They still don't have a guy who can really create his own shot.
