Pittsburgh Panthers vs. Syracuse Orange Betting Odds & Pick: November 23rd 2013

Pittsburgh Panthers vs. Syracuse Orange
Betting Pick: Pittsburgh +1 -110 odds (November 23rd 2013)

Here’s an old rivalry that has experienced some great moments over the years. This won’t be one of them as both teams are struggling through mediocre seasons and may need to win this game to earn a Bowl Game. Pittsburgh is coming off a tough loss to North Carolina, while the Orange are coming off an absolute drubbing at the hands of Florida State. While Pitt sits at just 5-5, the Panthers have been competitive in 9 of their 10 games, with the only blowout coming in the season opener against the mighty Seminoles of Florida State. Syracuse has been far less consistent, looking really good at times, but also getting absolutely BURIED in four contests…losses to FSU, Clemson, Georgia Tech and Northwestern. The key game to consider here is Georgia Tech which is the most easily comparable common opponent. The Panthers gave Georgia Tech all they wanted in a 21-10 road loss where Pitt actually led for a good chunk of the game. By comparison, the Orange were humiliated on the road when they visited the Yellow Jackets and Syracuse has not seemed to recover from that beating despite solid wins over ACC foes Wake Forest and Maryland.

The Pitt defense has been solid for much of the year despite playing a pretty darn tough schedule. The highlight of the year came in a victory over Notre Dame, plus the Panthers were very competitive in losses to teams like Virginia Tech, North Carolina and Georgia Tech. Syracuse has proved dominant against teams with bad offenses who cannot protect their quarterback, but the Orange have really struggled against anyone who has shown real physicality along the line of scrimmage. Syracuse QB Terrell Hunt got off to a great start in his career, but he has completely fallen apart in recent weeks and he’s definitely a notch or two below Pitt’s Tom Savage, though the latter hasn’t exactly set the world on fire either. Unless the Syracuse pass defense gets a LOT better overnight, we look for the Panthers to get a hard-earned road victory in this one.

LSU vs. Texas A&M Betting Odds & Pick from Teddy Covers: November 23rd 2013

LSU vs. Texas A&M
Betting Pick: Over 71.5 -110 odds (November 23rd 2013)

The Aggies have scored at least 41 points in every game, including their matchup against Alabama’s elite defense. Let’s not forget that the Crimson Tide gave up 42 points and 628 yards of total offense against the Aggies, but only 50 points in eight games since that shootout.

LSU isn’t any more likely to shut down Johnny Manziel than any of the other SEC defenses that Texas A&M has shredded in recent weeks. The last three good offenses the Tigers have faced – Alabama, Ole Miss and Georgia – combined to score 109 points against LSU’s stop unit.

But Kevin Sumlin’s defense can’t be trusted to get stops, which is why A&M has exceeded 78 points in all six previous SEC games. And Cam Cameron’s offense is no joke; primed for a bounceback showing after last week’s rough second half against ‘Bama. Even a few rainshowers can’t slow these two top notch attacks! Take the Over.
