The Pittsburgh Panthers are 18-9 (9-7) this season after they defeated Virginia Tech by a score of 79-64 in their last game. Pittsburgh was tied at 36 at the half, but they scored 43 points in the second half for the win. The Panthers shot 50.9% from the field and were +14 in rebounding margin in the game.

Pittsburgh vs Clemson Betting Prediction

These two teams come into this matchup tied in the ACC standings with a record of 9-7 in conference play, and they have both played very well over the last few weeks. Clemson will have the home court advantage and they are shooting over 47% from the field, while Pittsburgh is only shooting 43.1% on field goals. We saw the Panthers get absolutely blown out in their last road game against Wake Forest, but they have been decent on the road this year. Pittsburgh has been strong defensively this season and I like them with the points on the road.
