Defensively, Pittsburgh is allowing 23.9 points and 297.4 yards per game. Paris Ford leads the Pittsburgh Panthers with 45 tackles, Patrick Jones II has seven sacks and Marquis Williams has two interceptions.
The Florida State Seminoles also need a win here to rebound from a slow 2-4 record. The Florida State Seminoles have won seven of their last nine home games. Jordan Travis is completing 50.5 percent of his passes for 758 yards, four touchdowns and four interceptions. Travis and James Blackman have combined for six touchdowns and six interceptions.

Defensively, Florida State is allowing 35 points and 490.5 yards per game.

The Panthers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a bye week and 0-5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Seminoles are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games and 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The over is 4-0 in Panthers last 4 games overall. The over is 4-1 in Seminoles last 5 games overall.
The Pittsburgh Panthers have lost four straight games and aren't showing much on the offensive side of the ball. Pittsburgh hasn't had much success running the football and that hurt the rest of the offense. The Florida State Seminoles haven't looked good in their own right to say the least, and a lot of their struggles start on the defensive side where they're at the bottom of nearly every major statistical category. With all that said, Florida State still has the better roster between these two teams with the better athletes and the Noles have had great success at home despite their issues overall. While FSU doesn't look good and is in full struggle mode, I still see some value in getting them at home in a pick em game against a subpar Pitt squad.
Give me FSU at home in this toss up.
