Panthers vs Volunteers Prediction: Spread

The Pittsburgh Panthers have the better quarterback as Pickett was a lot more accurate while Milton failed to complete 50 percent of his passes against an inferior Bowling Green defense. The Volunteers are good but there is a reason why the Panthers are road favorites here. With such a small spread, we are essentially picking the winner and Pittsburgh seems to be the better team so go with the Pittsburgh Panthers -3.5 on the road here.

Panthers vs Volunteers Prediction: MoneyLine

This is exactly why we bet on the Pittsburgh Panthers with the spread as they have better odds and this game should be anything to hold your breath on. We already highlighted that we don’t trust Milton here and the defenses are similar. Go with the Pittsburgh Panthers to win on the road here.

Panthers vs Volunteers Prediction: Total

These teams dominated with their rush defense so this means the offenses are going to be forced to be more one-dimensional than they would want to be. The defenses allowed a total of 13 points in Week 1 so expecting the defenses to take that huge of a leap in the wrong direction is too much of a stretch for me. Looking a bit into the 2020 season, the Volunteers had the under hit in seven of their last eight games so go with UNDER 57.5 points in this game.
