The ACC Tournament gets underway from Greensboro on Tuesday afternoon with a clash between Miami and Pittsburgh. The Hurricanes were an atrocious 1-8 on the road this year, so the neutral site helps.
The Panthers are -3 point favorites, but nobody feels comfortable with that line after Pittsburgh has dropped 6 of their last 7. Their lone win since February 3rd was against the second worst team in the conference, Wake Forest.
The Hurricanes had a lot of potential this season, but battled a lot of injuries en route to an 8-16 record. Miami had also lost six straight games down the stretch before beating the worst team in the conference, Boston College, 80-76 last Friday.
Miami might be in some trouble come ACC tournament time, as they used only 7 players in their rotation, and barely beat the 4-15 Golden Eagles by 4 points.
If Miami were to pull off the somewhat miraculous, and highly unlikely win on Tuesday, they’re a good team to bet against on Wednesday because that kind of lack of depth doesn’t go well in tournaments.
They may not be deep, but the ‘Canes are top-heavy. Kameron McGusty just had 27 vs. Boston College and Isaiah Wong leads the team with 17.1 ppg. Plus, these guys never leave the court – because they can’t.
It’s all about the big hoss for Pittsburgh, as they’ll go as far as Justin Champagnie will take them. The 2nd leading scorer in the ACC throws in 18.4 ppg, and is also the leading conference rebounder with 11.1.
Even though he’s just 6’6″, Champagnie has a presence and is the type of post player that is a huge asset in early neutral site tournament games.
Despite having the consistent double-double from Champagnie, Pitt has still only managed 2 victories in their last 11 games. Prior to the loss to Clemson on Saturday, a majority of the defeats were close with the largest margin of victory over the previous five being 7 points.
More importantly does Pittsburgh have anybody beyond Champagnie in case the big man gets in foul trouble? You’d think, as Au’Diese Toney pumps in 14 points/game.
CBB Betting Trends:
- Hurricanes are 7-21-1 last 29 neutral site games
- Panthers are 9-2 ATS last 11 neutral site games
- Over is 5-1 in Panthers last 6 neutral site games
Free Miami Hurricanes vs. Pittsburgh Panthers NCAAB Prediction:
Pitt is 10th in the ACC in scoring, Miami 13th. The Panthers are 7th in defensive scoring, and the ‘Canes 11th. The Panthers have an obvious advantage here, especially in depth.
The squads met up just once this season, with Pittsburgh notching a 70-55 win way back on December 16th. Champagnie only had 10 points and the Panthers still won by 15 points.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Pittsburgh -3
It’s hard not to envision the Panthers running away with this one. Miami just wants to get this injury riddled season behind them.
