Current Records: Jacksonville 7-3; Pittsburgh 4-7

What to Know

The Pittsburgh Panthers will be home for the holidays to greet the Jacksonville Dolphins at 2 p.m. ET Tuesday at Petersen Events Center. Both teams come into the contest bolstered by wins in their previous games.

The Panthers skirted by the St. John’s Red Storm 59-57 this past Saturday thanks to a clutch half-court bomb from guard Jamarius Burton with 0:01 remaining. Pitt’s forward Mouhamadou Gueye filled up the stat sheet, picking up 15 points in addition to six boards and three blocks. Gueye had some trouble finding his footing against the Monmouth Hawks last week, so this was a step in the right direction. Gueye’s points were the most he has had all year.

Meanwhile, Jacksonville simply couldn’t be stopped this past Saturday, as they easily beat the Webber International Warriors at home 87-48.

The Panthers are the favorite in this one, with an expected 6-point margin of victory. But bettors beware: they are only 1-3 against the spread when favored.

The wins brought Pitt up to 4-7 and Jacksonville to 7-3. A couple stats to keep an eye on: Pitt is second worst in college basketball in points per game, with only 60.4 on average. The Dolphins’ defense has more to brag about, as they they rank third in college basketball when it comes to points allowed per game, with only 54.1 on average. Maybe that strength will give Jacksonville the oomph they need to beat the odds.
