Free NCAAB Pick:

Pittsburgh Panthers +2.5

This is a perfect opportunity to fade a ranked team off an emotional win over their in-state rival as they will have to take on a good Pittsburgh team who was just slashed by 28 points at home. The Pittsburgh Panthers might have the ACC player of the year on their hands with Justin Champagnie as he is averaging 20.1 PPG and 12.1 RPG, but in order for the Panthers to be successful they need to receive scoring from Xavier Johnson and Au’Diese Toney who both average over 13 PPG. The Virginia Tech Hokies are a very good defensive team which was proven in their recent game against Virginia as they held them to 51 points, but the Panthers play an up and down style which won’t allow the Hokies to set their half-court defense. Final Score Prediction, Pittsburgh Panthers win and cover ATS 69-67.
