NCAA Football Picks - Find Out What College Football Team Will Put Money in Your Pocket This Season
By Jimmy Reilly
Our Football insiders for College Football Picks report that the Pittsburgh Panthers are the team to watch in the 2010 College Football season as sports bettors should jump on them early and often. This team is stacked on offense and defense with skill players that will be playing on Sundays. The Panthers finished the 2009 season going 10-3 and lost a chance to go to a BCS Bowl game losing to #3 ranked Cincinnati 45-44 after leading until the final 2 minutes of the game.
The Panther offense will be lead by Dion Lewis, one of the best running backs in the country who you will hear mentioned in the Heisman race by the end of the season.
Lewis is a dynamic running back that was not highly recruited but stormed on the College Football scene rushing for 1,799 yards and 17 touchdowns in his freshman year ranking #2 behind former Heisman trophy winner Tony Dorsett for Pitt's single season rushing record. Our Football insiders for NCAAF Picks project that Pittsburgh will be one of the top scoring teams in the nation this season as they run a pro-style offense with a fullback and tight end rather than the traditional running back spread.
Sophomore Bill Sunseri who has a strong arm and good mobility will start his first season at quarterback for the Panthers. Our football insiders for NCAAF Picks report that Sunseri will have the best tandem of tackles in the Big East Conference to block for him upfront and a big target at tight end as 6 foot 5 Jonathan Baldwin caught 57 passes for 1,111 yards last season.
Pitt's defense will still be the weak part of this football team again this season but they do have studs on their defense that will be playing on Sunday's. They have a pass rushing duo in Jabaal Sheard and Greg Romeus who has become one of the best defensive ends in the country. Pitt also has one of the Big East best safeties in Dom DeCicco who had 88 tackles and three interceptions last season.
This defense has to come together as a unit but the Panther offense that scores at will and pounds opposing defensives on the ground will take a lot of pressure off the defense and enable them to succeed. Take advantage of the betting numbers the odds makers will post early in the season when making your College Football Picks before the public is aware of this talent and realizes Pitt is a dangerous team that no one in the country will be able to stop.
