Game Preview

  • My North Carolina Tar Heels will play the Pittsburgh Panthers in an ACC Battle tonight at Acrisure Stadium in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The Tar Heels comes into this game undefeated through three games so far, while Pittsburgh has lost two games in a row to West Virginia and Cincinnati, but I'm sure they are looking to right some wrongs tonight, but are they up to the test ? I think I have pretty good idea who get this done!

North Carolina also beat the breaks off South Carolina by a score of 31-17 in Week 1 and Appalachian State by a score of 40-34 in Week 2.

Plugs Game Prediction

💎 North Carolina -6.5 -127 ( 1 Unit )

  • Pittsburgh is hurting coming into this game, trying to snap their two game losing streak and will need to get that offense moving much better in this game then we have seen in there privious games or they are in big trouble. North Carolina has a very good offensive attack and can put up points fast, but their defense will give up points as well. So I do think the over is another good look here. But I think this is a great matchup for UNC!! This Pitt offense is not explosive at all. The North Carolina offense may start slow against this pretty solid Pitt defense, but I expect the Tar Heels to wake up quick and really pull away and do damage in the second half of this game! I am a UNC Fan But This is a 100% non Biasis Pick for y'all tonight! Good Luck and lets Keep Cashing!
