Pittsburgh vs Michigan State 12/30/21 Betting Prediction
Pittsburgh is 11-2 and on a 5-game winning streak. The Panthers really surprised most people for entering the top 15 rankings in the country. They have memorable wins over Clemson and Wake Forest with their only losses coming against Miami and Western Michigan. The Panthers use their great passing offense to perfection as they are ranked 6th in the country and the offense as a whole is averaging 43 points per game. The defense allows just 23.1 points per game.
Michigan State is ranked 10th this season with 10 wins from 12 games but we have to note that their 2 losses came in their last 4 games of the regular season. The Spartans have the ability to mix passes with rushes. They average 245.3 passing yards and 185.6 rushing yards per game. The offense scores 31.9 points per game while the defense allows 25.7 points per game.
Michigan State has one of the worst pass defenses in the whole country. They allow 356.3 passing yards per game which is a very high number. In contrast, Pittsburgh allows 273.8 passing yards per game. These two great offenses will definitely benefit from the 2 leaky defenses and score lots of points.
