Pitt Opens as 6-Point Road Favorites Against Virginia



A win over Syracuse snapped a two-game skid, losing three of four games in October as a whole, and Pitt has now laid the foundation for a November win streak.

Pitt and Virginia will square off at Scott Stadium in Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday at noon, and Pitt has opened as a 6-point road favorite — with a measly over/under of just 40.5 points. The broadcast crew will be announced later this week.

DraftKings Sportsbook is slightly less bullish on Pitt, setting Pitt as a 4-point favorite, with both bets against the spread holding -110 odds. The over/under has been set at 41 points, with a bet for the over holding -115 odds and the under holding -105 odds.

A bet on Pitt winning outright holds -190 odds while the same for Virginia holds +160 odds.

Virginia is in the midst of a difficult season, as former conference-leading quarterback Brennan Armstrong has failed to live up to lofty expectations.

Despite challenging North Carolina last week, falling just short in a 31-28 loss, it was still UVa’s sixth loss this season. The Cavaliers are 3-6 (1-5 ACC) this season, with losses to Louisville, Duke, Miami, Syracuse and UNC.

Pitt is 9-4 all-time against Virginia dating back to an inaugural 26-0 win back in 1953. Pitt has won six of the last eight matchups, including a 48-38 win over UVa last season at what-was-then Heinz Field to secure the ACC Coastal title. Kenny Pickett and Jordan Addison combined for four touchdowns in the key win.
