Why Bet The Pittsburgh Panthers

The Panthers (15-15 SU, 12-15-2 ATS) have lost three straight and four of their last five games and comes into this matchup off a humbling 61-52 road loss to Georgia Tech on Tuesday.

Pittsburgh was led by Michael Young with 16 points and four rebounds, Cameron Johnson with 13 points and four rebounds and Jamel Artis with 12 points, five rebounds and four assists, but the Hoyas shot a tepid 37.7 percent from the field in the convincing loss.

Why Bet The Virginia Cavaliers

Virginia (20-9 SU, 16-11 ATS) has won two straight after dropping their previous four games and come into this matchup off a stunning 53-43 win over No. 5 North Carolina on Monday. Virginia held No. 5 North Carolina to its lowest point total in 38 years.

“I think it started with how we got into the ball,” Virginia coach Tony Bennett said of his team’s defensive effort. “We were active, we pressured the ball and we didn’t turn it over so they didn’t get many run-outs.”

Virginia committed just four turnovers and got 13 offensive rebounds in the win. Freshman Kyle Guy scored a game-high 17 points to lead three Cavaliers in double figures. London Perrantes added 13 points, and Devon Hall scored 11.

Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction

The Virginia Cavaliers are the easy pick to beat the hell out of a Pittsburgh team that likely just wants to get their lost season over with. The Cavs are insanely solid on the defensive end of the floor as evidenced by what they did against Carolina in their last contest.

Virginia beat Pittsburgh 88-76 on Jan. 4, but this time around, I like them to win by at least a dozen points.

My final score prediction is Virginia 74 Pittsburgh 64
