Pittsburgh Panthers @ Rutgers Scarlet Nights (+5.5): I guess Pittsburgh is Pittsburgh and that’s somehow the reason they are favored by 5.5 points playing at Rutgers on a Friday Night? Otherwise I can’t really explain it. Both teams have one loss, and neither looked pretty in the process. But Rutgers has played consistently better defense, giving up just 35 points over the last 4 games. And ready for this – since taking over at quarterback full time, Tom Savage has led his team to 4 straight wins. Not enough is said about that, not many people know. Savage has been very efficient, and better yet, mistake free. Look for him to continue his solid play, and at the very least, Rutgers is a nice value bet as a 5.5 point dog at home.
