Preview & Analysis: Pittsburgh vs West Virginia 09-16-2023

Game Preview


 

Game Preview

 
On Saturday, Pitt and West Virginia will resume the “Backyard Brawl,” a classic college football rivalry. The Panthers vs. Mountaineers is an ongoing series that has seen 106 previous contests since its inception in 1895.
 
Can the Mountaineers finally stop giving the ball away so often? Last year, West Virginia lost because quarterback J.T. Daniels threw a late pick-six that changed the momentum of the game. Garret Greene will be calling the offensive plays this time, so he better be spotless. If the Mountaineers can limit their turnovers and establish the run, they should have a good chance of winning at home.
 
Whether or not Garret Greene improves as a passer in 2023 will determine the trajectory of West Virginia’s offense. So far through two games, he has a 57.8 passer rating while passing for 402 yards, four scores, and zero picks. He has also shown that he is still a dangerous dual-threat by adding 104 running yards and one touchdown on 20 carries.
 

 
Like Greene, Phil Jurkovec has gotten off to a slow start to the 2023 season in terms of accuracy (49.1%), but unlike Greene, he has yet to throw an interception. Jurkovec always managed to find a way to drive Boston College to success, and it looks like he’ll have to do the same for Pitt this year. It’s easier said than done, especially on the road, in this rivalry.
 
Is Jurkovec’s Pitt team capable of winning in Morgantown? He was only 10 for 32 last week, but fortunately three of those were touchdowns. It wasn’t enough, though, as Cincinnati came through in the end and won. After suffering a painful setback at Acrisure Stadium a week ago, Jurkovec will now have to face a hostile road environment. Can he pick himself up and start over?

How to read NCAAF Odds?

The way in which NCAAF Odds are read is just like when reading odds for an NFL game. The odds in college football and in all other sports in which a person can bet on work as a competition leveler for sports betting purposes, especially considering that there will always be one team that’s considered a favorite even by the slightest advantage. Odds are used under the understanding that it allows both teams to be able to have a proportionate or even equal number of bets per side.

When reading the odds, you will usually see that the favored team in the matchup will have a “-“sign next to its name while the underdog will have a “+” next to its name. What that means for a favorite team is that bettors have to bet however much the number next to the “-“says in order to make $100. For the underdogs, bettors are told by the number next to the “+” how much money they would make if they were to wager $100.

How do spreads work in College Football?

When betting on your preferred NCAAF picks, you want to make sure that you are understanding everything going on around your wagers, which is why understanding how spreads work is something pivotal for winning. When reading a point spread most of the times there will be a favorite and an underdog, that is unless the matchup is so even that a favorite cannot be named. A favorite team, which usually is posted with a negative sign next to it usually has points taken away by book makers, which ends up meaning that for this team to win and cover the spread they must win by at least the number of points previously deducted in order to cover.

For underdogs, they will have a positive sign and will either win the game outright or lose by less points than the ones added by bookmakers in order to cover. While all that might sound hard to understand and deduct, that’s where a show like BetUS TV’s “The NCAAF Show” comes into play like an MVP, giving college football fans all the right tools and of course the best NCAAF predictions to be able to win at all times.
