These are two of the worst programs in the ACC this season. Neither is gong anywhere this year but one will get a conference win and those matter.
Pitt appears to be back on a path towards respectability but that is all relative in the ACC where there are many national championship level programs.
Pitt has lost nine straight but they have mostly been in those games. They just don’t have a lot of difference makers, if any to help them win games that they are in.
Xavier Johnson is having a nice freshman season – 16ppg in the ACC is nothing to sneeze at. His consistency has not been great though, and they need more scoring.
Fellow freshman Trey McGowens gives them another 12ppg so in a couple of years maybe this duo of combo guards gets them back to the Tournament.
Terrell Brown is a defensiv presence inside averaging 2 blocks per game but Pitt does not have a low post presence this season.
Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets
Georgie Tech’ scoring and defensive averages are both 64.9ppg. On offense that is terrible but on defense it probably keeps them in some games they shouldn’t be in.
It is hard to see how their scoring is going to improve much this season. Jose Alvarado is a nice player but he only averages 11ppg.
The guy they need more from is James Banks. He has good size and strength and just needs to learn to use it more effectively. He is just a freshman though.
The big problem that GT has on offense is that nothing comes easy for them. It is one thing to slow things down but you also have to be able to make some shots.

Free Pittsburgh Panthers vs. Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets NCAAB Prediction:
They do not play the same style but there is not a ton separating these programs.
I do like the upside of the Panthers but hitting the road and having to fight for every bucket might be too great an ask.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Pittsburgh +2
I am going to go for the road “upset” in this one. The freshman backcourt gets it done.
