Miami (FL) at Pitt College Football Preview
Lenny Del Genio offerssports betting tipsat Vegas Experts.Former Big East rivals Miami and Pittsburgh meet Thursday night on ESPN in what should be a verycompetitive game with drastic reprecussions for the loser. Both schools were expected to challenge forits respective conference championship, but each has already suffered a non-conference loss meaningwhoever goes down Thursday night falls to 1-2. The early betting line(http://www.vegasexperts.com/sports-betting-line.asp) has the visiting Hurricanes favored by 3.5points.This will be the first time these two schools have played since Miami left the Big East in 2004. The Caneswon that prior meeting 28-14 as a three-point road favorite on thebetting linehere at Heinz Field fortheir eighth straight victory over the Panthers and 14th and 15 tries. Perhaps its worth noting that Pittwas outgained in five of the last six meetings and done so by an average of 185 yards per game.There is a coaching connection here as Pitt HC Wannstedt served as defensive coordinator at CoralGables under Jimmy Johnson from 1986-88. Miami HC Shannon was a starting LB on the 1987 team.Back to this year, both squads had hoped to come into this game unbeaten. Miami's loss was moreexcusable as it came playing at #2 Ohio State twelve days ago. "The U" did not cover as 8.5-pointunderdogs in the 36-24 defeat.

Miami has been a terriblecollege football pick()under their current head coach - at Virginia Tech(twice), Florida St, Oklahoma and Ohio State - they've been outscored by a whopping 188-61 marginwhile going 0-5 ATS. Harris threw 17 INT's last year, so that's another thing to keep an eye on.Miami has not played since the Ohio State loss and will be trying to avoid back to back regular seasonlosses for the first time since the final two games of the 2008 season.Pittsburgh suffered its defeat in the season opener, also on the road, at Utah. The only difference is thatthey were far more competitive in a 27-24 overtime loss, which did drop them out of the Top 25. Wannyand company rebounded with a win over an FCS opponent, New Hampshire, by a score of 38-16. Neitherof these teams has beaten an FBS opponent yet this season.The Panthers may have larger issues thancollege football picksand a 1-10 SU record vs. non-conference, ranked opponents (since '96) as freshman tailback Jason Douglas (DUI) and reserveoffensive lineman Keith Coleman (aggravated assault) have been suspended indefinitely. Both playerswere arrested, as was defensive end JabaalSheard in July for an off-campus fight. On the field, RB Dion
