What does our staff feel like will happen tonight? Pain...a lot of pain.
Adam: Pitt 75-66
Pitt is 17-10 this season when scoring 70 or more points and the Deacs have struggled stopping teams from scoring. Add that to the tough environment with the "Oakland Zoo", and I don't like our odds.
Bart: Pitt 87-71
This prediction was presented without any comment nor context.
Chris: Pitt 70-66
I think we keep this one close and buckle late. Pitt hasn't been scoring well lately, but they're a solid defensive team. We don't play well on the road, we're in a big rut, and Pitt is the better team.
Matt: Pitt 85-74
Reverse jinx maybe?
Ned: Pitt 88-71
Wake's defensive struggles continue as Pitt takes a must-win game for their bubble hopes. A lack of offensive balance haunts the Deacs once again in the second half as the Panthers pull away.
Riley: Pitt 72-65
I think the Deacs continue their trend of playing well early on and folding late. Pittsburgh is a tough place to win and Wake has lost 49 of their last 51 ACC road games.
