Syracuse vs Pittsburgh Week 10 Game Info

2022 NCAA College Football Game
No. 20 Syracuse Orange (6-2, 3-1 ACC) vs. Pittsburgh Panthers (4-4, 1-3 ACC)
Date: Saturday, Nov. 5, 2022
Time: 3:30 p.m. ET
Venue: Acrisure Stadium — Pittsburgh, PA
Coverage: ACCN

Week 10 of the 2022 NCAA college football season includes an ACC showdown between the No. 20 Syracuse Orange and Pittsburgh Panthers. Syracuse's six-game winning streak to start the campaign has since turned to back-to-back losses. The Orange now look to get back into the win column after last week's 41-24 loss to Notre Dame.

Pittsburgh has also had trouble winning games lately, picking up losses in three of its last four outings. The Panthers' most recent loss was a doozy as they fell, 42-24, to then-No. 24 North Carolina, leaving time to tell if they can bounce back at home this weekend.

Pittsburgh enters this contest as a clear home favorite on the spread and moneyline. This 3:30 p.m. ET clash also features a total of 48.5, which is low compared to this week's projected totals.

Syracuse vs Pittsburgh Prediction & Pick

Both ACC schools have had a tough go lately, but I expect Syracuse to get back on track here. Last week's outing against Notre Dame was tough to watch, but it's worth pointing out that the Orange only lost by six points to Clemson — the No. 4 program — just a week before that.

Meanwhile, Pittsburgh has struggled to get its offense going, averaging just 17 points over the last two weeks. It's going to be tough for the Panthers to move and score the ball against an Orange defense that boasts a top-20 scoring offense this season, which has also surrendered just 20.5 PPG on the road this fall.

Even though Pittsburgh has gone 17-3 straight up in its last 20 games against Syracuse, the Orange have the better, more well-rounded roster this season. With a solid combination of offense and defense, I have Syracuse taking this one.

Final Score Prediction: Syarcuse: 24 | Pittsburgh: 20

Syracuse vs Pittsburgh Betting Trends

- Syracuse is 6-2 against the spread (ATS) in its last eight games.
- Pittsburgh is 1-5 ATS in its last six home games.

Syracuse vs Pittsburgh Best Bet

All NCAAF betting lines, odds and prop bets are available on FanDuel Sportsbook.

I don't expect this game to have an eye-popping final score. As mentioned above, the total has hit the under in eight of the last 10 Syracuse-Pittsburgh matchups. On top of that, the Orange have fallen short of the total in four of their last five games this season.

With the last three meetings between these ACC rivals each finishing below 48.5 points, I'm inclined to back the under here.

Bet: Under 48.5 Points (-115)
