15* Big East PLAY OF THE DAY on Pittsburgh -3
Pittsburgh vs. South Florida,

Score: 51 - 63
Point Spread: -3/-105 Pittsburgh
The Pittsburgh Panthers are on a roll right now. They are making their run to try and play themselves into the NCAA Tournament. This team remains undervalued due to their slow start, but they're finally starting to play up to their potential.
At 15-9 on the season, I'm certain the Panthers would fall short of the Big Dance if the season were to end today. Their 4-0 SU & 4-0 ATS run in their last four games has put them right back into the mix. That includes home wins over Providence (86-74), Georgetown (72-60) and Villanova (79-70) while also going on the road and beating West Virginia (72-66).
South Florida is no match for red hot Pittsburgh tonight. The Bulls are coming off a 30-point beat down at the hands of Georgetown (45-75). Their only Big East wins this season have come against bottom feeders in Rutgers, Villanova, Seton Hall, St. Johns, DePaul and Providence. They aren't ready to beat a quality team like Pitt.
South Florida is 0-7 ATS in their last 7 when playing against a good team (Win Pct. 60% to 80%). The Panthers are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 vs. Big East. Take this 11-0 system backing the Panthers straight to the bank tonight. Roll with Pittsburgh Wednesday.
