Pittsburgh Panthers vs Virginia Tech Hokies. The NCAAB pick for this game is the Virginia Tech Hokies. Horton’s return is a positive for Pitt since it adds another seasoned player to the Panthers’ rotation.

 

Pitt’s concern this season is their offensive woes. It’s not going to happen by producing only 62.5 points per game, and playing a Virginia Tech team ranked in the top 30 in the country in scoring defense isn’t going to help matters.

 

Even though Pitt shot 56.8% from the field and scored 71 points in Saturday’s game, the Panthers still lost. Now they must go to Blacksburg, which has a record of 1-7 as a visiting team this season. Virginia Tech has a solid offensive line, with four players averaging double digits this season.

 

In recent years, we saw the Hokies dominate the series, and that bodes well for them here. Virginia Tech has the upper hand after sweeping the season series. The Hokies will win to a predicted score of 70-65.
