The Duke Blue Devils will be aiming to solidify their lead atop the ACC Coastal division standings this weekend when they visit the Pittsburgh Panthers as 3.5-point road underdogs in college football betting at online sportsbook Bodog.
The Blue Devils shocked the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets 31-25, winning outright as 3.5-point underdogs in Week 7, and followed up with a 20-13 win over Virginia to move to 2-1 in the conference and 6-1 overall.
Duke travels to Pittsburgh following a bye in Week 9 and faces a Panthers squad struggling to record wins and reward bettors. The Panthers are 1-4 SU in their last five, dropping to 4-4 on the season, and have failed to cover in three of their last four home dates, losing SU as home favorites on each of those occasions.
The Panthers were particularly sloppy in their last outing, turning the ball over six times in a 56-28 home loss to Georgia Tech as 3.5-point home favorites, and averaged just 17.5 points per game in their previous four games.
While the Blue Devils’ offense has sputtered at times, they are a confident squad on a roll that has already achieved bowl eligibility, and are a legitimate threat to win a second straight division title. Given their recent poor performances, the Panthers look ill-prepared to slow down Duke’s momentum.
Matchup Reports: Duke vs. Pittsburgh | TCU vs. West Virginia
No. 20 West Virginia are one of the surprise stories of the season, but despite their four-game SU winning streak and solid AP Top 25 ranking, the 6-1 Mountaineers play host to No. 7 TCU as 5.5-point home underdogs in Week 10 college football betting at Bodog.
The 6-2 Mountaineers disposed of No. 4 Baylor with a stunning 41-27 upset win in Week 8 as 8-point home dogs followed by a statement 34-10 win over Oklahoma State as 2.5-point road favorites last weekend, proving they are not starstruck when faced with elite competition.
The Horned Frogs have scored a whopping 182 combined points in their last three outings, posting SU wins over the Cowboys and Texas Tech after losing to Baylor.
But while TCU is a scoring machine, the WVU offense, led by QB Clint Trickett’s 2,763 passing yards and 17 TDs, has proven it can go toe-to-toe in shootouts, while the Mountaineers defense has efficiently held their four recent top-flight opponents to just over 21 points per game.
With a possible share of top spot in the Big 12 on the line, WVU is a solid bet.
