Winning Props Bets

The Syracuse Orange have split their last six home games. Garrett Shrader is completing 50.5 percent of his passes for 1,228 yards, 7 touchdowns and 4 interceptions. Courtney Jackson and Damien Alford have combined for 537 receiving yards and 3 touchdowns, while Sean Tucker has 18 receptions. The Syracuse Orange ground game is averaging 231.5 yards per contest, and Sean Tucker leads the way with 1,467 yards and 12 touchdowns. Defensively, Syracuse is allowing 25.9 points and 331.8 yards per game. Mikel Jones leads the Syracuse Orange with 93 tackles, Cody Roscoe has 7.5 sacks and Darian Chestnut has 2 interceptions.

The Panthers are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 road games and 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games overall. The Orange are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 home games and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The over is 15-4 in Panthers last 19 games overall. The over is 7-3 in Orange last 10 games in November. The Panthers are 3-1-2 ATS in their last 6 meetings in Syracuse and 7-3-2 ATS in their last 12 meetings.

The Syracuse Orange should be up for this game considering they need it to become bowl eligible, and it is senior night with a roster that includes 10 seniors. However, Syracuse doesn’t have the offensive firepower to keep up. The Pittsburgh Panthers are one of the best offensive teams in the country, ranked second in total offense and third in scoring offense. Pittsburgh has scored no less than 30 points in four straight games, and it’s why the Panthers have a lot of covering success as well. I’ll lay the two touchdowns.
