Miami FL vs Pittsburgh Preview and Free Pick – September 23rd, 2010 ]]> include($base_url . “/includes/header.htm”); ?>
Tonight’s interesting non-conference matchup between the Miami Hurricanes and Pitt Panthers has two teams that should be well rested. Both teams were off last weekend. Miami is coming off the tougher of the games as they went into Columbus, Ohio and fell to the Buckeyes 36-24 and failed to cover the spread. Young QB Jacory Harris was simply not ready for a big time road game. He looked completely lost against the Ohio State defense throwing 4 interceptions and only 1 TD. The good news is that he probably needed a game like that to get better. He has a lot of talent. Pitt is coming off a very lackluster 38-16 win at home against FCS New Hampshire. That was probably contributed to their hard fought 3 point overtime loss at Utah to open the season. They forced 3 big turnovers in that game to keep it close despite being outgained by 139 yards.
Pittsburgh is 7-3 ATS in their last 10 home games. The line has slowly moved up to 4 and the public is all over Miami in this one. I think Pitt plays tough defense tonight and keeps it close.
Pick: Pitt +4
