The Hawkeyes have started the season with three straight home games and last week were able to beat in-state rival Iowa State, but not by the NCAA betting line in the 17-5 win. After a season opening home loss to Bowling Green, the Panthers are looking to grab a winning record before they head into Big East play.
Last week against the Cyclones, the Hawkeye defense did the heavy lifting while the offense struggled, holding ISU to five points and forcing three turnovers in the victory. RB Shonn Greene was the bright spot for the Hawkeyes as he carried the ball 20 times for 120 yards with one touchdown.
In three games this season, the Hawkeye defense has only given up eight points, a miniscule 2.7 PPG average, and with this information it is no wonder that both of their games against FBS opponents have gone under the ‘total’ per the football odds; knowledgeable college football betting ‘total’ players have seen their bankrolls increase.
Once again, Dave Wannstedt is on the hot seat at Pittsburgh after that 27-17 loss to Bowling Green. The good news is that the Panthers had a bye this past week and have had two weeks to prepare for Iowa.
In the Panthers last game, a 27-16 win over Buffalo, star RB LeSean McCoy provided the only offensive production for the team by scoring three touchdowns to go along with 117 total yards in the teams first victory of the season.
NCAA football betting fans should take note: Pittsburgh is 0-2 ATS as a home favorite and both of their games have gone under the ‘total’ per the closing NCAA lines so far in ’08. Right now, the NCAA odds have the Panthers as a scant one-point home favorite in this game.
