The Panthers got a much needed 21-20 win against Iowa last week that will calm the building clamor for HC Dave Wannstedt to be fired, although they failed to cover the NCAA betting line. Meanwhile, the Orange are looking for any momentum after last week’s 30-21 win against FCS Northeastern and are looking for their first back-to-back wins since 2006.
HC Dave Wannstedt has been an underachiever all throughout his coaching tenure at Pittsburgh and is trying desperately to shake that label. QB Bill Stull has been disappointing so far this season, and that disappointment continued with an 11-25 129 yard 1 INT performance.
For the third time in as many games, do-it-all RB LeSean McCoy had to lead the team and carried the ball 18 times for 78 yards and one touchdown. McCoy not only led the team in rushing, but with 33 receiving yards also led the team in receiving.
Unfortunately, for college football wagering enthusiasts, Pittsburgh is now 1-6 ATS as a home favorite per the NCAA lines since last year. The Orange are a pathetic 8-31 SU since HC Greg Robinson took over, and are at the lowest point in the program’s long proud history.
After struggling through the first few games, QB Andrew Robinson was benched last week against Northeastern in favor of QB Cameron Dantley who posted solid numbers (14-17 167 yards 1 TD) in the win. Most impressive was the Syracuse ground game by rushing for 271 yards and two touchdowns on 42 carries.
Last season, Syracuse posted a horrible NCAA football gambling record when the football betting line had them as a home underdog, going 0-6 ATS. Currently, NCAA odds have the Panthers as 15.5 point road favorites in this game with a ‘total’ of 46.5.
