College Football Betting Lines for Friday’s MatchupPosted by: Anthony Yaylor
This NCAA betting weekend, college football bettors will have the opportunity to wager on an enticing matchup between the Miami Hurricanes and the Pittsburgh Panthers. There will be a total of 4 different collegiate matchups this Friday and this will be one of the first contests of the day. Considering that the Hurricanes come into this Week 13 with a No. 2 nationwide ranking, the college football betting lines are likely to peg Miami as the heavy wagering favorite this Friday. Let’s take a look at just how lopsided of odds Pittsburgh will be facing at home this Friday.
Miami Hurricanes vs. Pittsburgh Panthers – Friday, November 24th
When: 12:00 pm ET
Where: Heinz Field, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Stream: ABC Sports, Watch ESPN
College Football Betting Lines:
Miami Hurricanes -13 ½ (-110) 52 (-110) -525
Pittsburgh Panthers +13 ½ (-110) 52 (-110) +415
The Hurricanes roll into this Friday’s matchup sporting an unblemished 10-0 record that ranks them as the best program in the ACC – Coastal division. Miami has defeated all 7 of their conference opponents this season, making it clear that they are the kings of the division. If Miami can manage to defeat Pittsburgh this Friday, something the college football betting lines are predicting handily, they’ll have the best conference record in the ACC. Miami has been put to the test several times this season, facing No. 13 Vermont and No. 3 Notre Dame over the last month. Miami won those games decisively with the contest against the Fighting Irish delivering the most lopsided finish: 41-8. Considering that Miami is coming off a game in which they almost defeated their opponent by 20 points, it’s safe to say the Hurricanes are playing their best football of 2017 at the moment. In other words, fans might want to take that 13 ½ spread prediction in order to cash in on a much better payout than one would get when betting on the money line for this Friday’s pairing.
The Panthers crawl into this Week 13 matchup with a 4-7 disappointing record that ranks the program 5th in the ACC – Coastal, all thanks to the mediocre 2-5 record Pittsburgh has posted in conference play this season. The bowls spread college football betting lines aren’t giving the Panthers much of a shot this Friday, which is to be expected considering the vast difference in both teams’ records as well as rankings. Pittsburgh’s 4 wins of the year have come against YSU, Rice University, Duke, and UVA. With that kind of track record, it’s no understatement to say that the nation will be tuning in for a massacre this Friday. The spread betting lines are only predicting a 16 point blowout, but all things considered it would not be that big of a bombshell to see the Hurricanes deliver an even more staggering result against the lowly Panthers. It would be interesting to see Pittsburgh come out on top but it’s simply not going to happen.
