Pittsburgh Panthers Football
Returning their leading passer, rusher and receiver, the Pittsburgh Panthers are hoping to improve on a mediocre 6-5 season in 2020.
Sportsbooks aren’t entirely convinced, pegging the Panthers' win total at just seven games and giving them the eighth-best shot at winning the ACC. Can head coach Pat Narduzzi’s squad prove them wrong this season?

Betting on the Pitt Panthers
Despite their winning record, betting on Panthers spreads was costly, as their 40% cover rate was near the bottom of the ACC. A spread bet is a way to bet on how much the Panthers will win or lose by. Here’s an example:
- Pittsburgh +3.5 (110)
- Virginia Tech -3.5 (110)
In this example, the Hokies are favored by 3.5 points, so a bet on Pitt would win if the Panthers managed to win the game or lose by three or fewer points. Virginia Tech would need to win the game by at least four to pay off for its bettors.
While betting on their spreads was a bad idea, betting on Panthers overs performed much better in 2020. They had one of the nation's highest over rates at 73%. An over/under, or total, bet is a bet on how many points both teams will score.
For example, if the Pittsburgh vs. Virginia Tech game has a 47.5 total, and the Panthers win 27-21, then the over wins. The under wins when the points scored between the teams is less than the total. If a game lands exactly on the number (think if the total was 48), then it's considered a push and all bettors at that number get their money back.
Unlike spread bets, where the margin of victory matters, moneylines are wagers on which team will win the game, by any amount. What’s different is the amount the bets pay to each side.
Here’s an example: When Pittsburgh is a +130 underdog, a $100 bet will pay out $230 ($130 in profit). When they’re a -130 favorite, it takes a bet of $130 to profit $100, for that same $230 payout. Moneylines are easiest to think of in units of $100 (or $10), but the math is the same no matter how you do it.
For the fantasy football player, props are a great way to transition into betting. Proposition bets, or props, are a way to bet on an individual player. As an example, you could bet over or under on WR Jordan Addison's yards, touchdowns, receptions and more, as well as bets on other skill position players.
Bets on who will win the Heisman Trophy are a popular example of a futures bet. Futures are bets on the entire season, either for a team or a player. Addison is currently a darkhorse Heisman candidate, but you could also bet on him to win the Biletnikoff Award for best wideout or bet on the Panthers' win total, their odds to win the conference, and more.
