Blitzalytics Analysis


Line Pittsburgh (-11.5) Over/Under 49 Against the Spread - Pittsburgh (7-5) Eastern Michigan (5-7)


After winning the division last year and leading it midway through the season this year, Pitt had a disappointing finish and dropped to 4th in the Coastal in 2019. Eastern Michigan has been to more bowls in this decade than they have for the rest of their history. From a 30,000 ft. view, this contest looks like a mismatch as a 4th place Power Five team is going against a 5th place Group of Five team. However, stranger things have happened when the supposed better team is not motivated to play in their bowl. Pitt does have a fair amount of injuries and they lost three of their last five coming down the stretch.


The Degenerate Menace Says: Do I take the underdog and hope that Pitt is unmotivated? Do I take the computer who says that Eastern Michigan is clearly overmatched? It is a very difficult decision, but I think I am going to take the computer on this one.


Prediction: Pittsburgh 40 - Eastern Michigan 16
