The Panthers were pushed around a bit by the Oakland Golden Grizzlies a few nights ago, but it’s hard to blame them, knowing that they have the No. 4 team in the country waiting in the wings in this game. Pitt is a talented team for sure, especially with the likes of Tray Woodall and James Robinson can really step it up to help out Talib Zanna. The trio of Trey Burke, Tim Hardaway Jr., and Glenn Robinson III should be able to put up a lot of points, but we have to wonder whether Big Blue is really overrated as the fourth ranked team in the land. Don’t get us wrong, as we know that this is a great team that has some Final Four potential this year. However, we have already seen what has happened on the campaign to teams like the NC State Wolfpack who have been overhyped quite a bit, and that might be what happens in what might feel like a road game against the Panthers. Madison Square Garden is the Big East’s territory, and we wouldn’t be surprised if in the end, U-Pitt snares the upset to move to 5-0.
Pittsburgh vs. Michigan Pick: Pittsburgh Panthers +2.5
Pittsburgh vs. Michigan Prediction: Pittsburgh 64 – Michigan 59
