Over is 7-3 in Panthers last 10 home games vs. a team with a winning road record.
Favorite is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 meetings.
My Prediction: South Florida will be looking for revenge in Pittsburgh after losing at home to the Panthers last year. The Bulls are off to a good start this year winning 4 straight including an opening season win at Notre Dame. Pitt is coming off a home loss to the Irish and have not really looked good in any of their games this year. The Bulls and QB B.J. Daniels are for real and I think they handle Pitt easily tonight.
