Pittsburgh vs. North Carolina Odds: Pitt Given 69.2% Chance to Beat UNC

Thursday Night Football usually implies an NFL matchup, but tonight, we get Pittsburgh vs. North Carolina in an ACC showdown. And, more importantly, we get Pittsburgh vs. North Carolina odds to bet on for a rare top-tier ACC mid-week showdown.

Not only will we be watching in order to track our bets on Pitt vs. UNC odds, but it’s also important to check this one out to see a pair of QBs that will be playing on Sunday come next season.

UNC starting QB Sam Howell came into the season with his eyes on the No. 1 overall spot in April’s NFL Draft. But, due to poor team play from UNC and average play from Howell, he’s dropped to what some consider a mid-to-late first-round pick.

Meanwhile, Pitt starting QB Kenny Pickett probably didn’t think he’d be hearing his name called until day 3 of the NFL Draft, if at all. But, he played himself into the Heisman conversation this season and, as a result, he also has snuck into the first round, according to some draft boards.

Still, what we’re focused on tonight is Pittsburgh vs. North Carolina odds. So, who should you be backing? What do the odds even look like? Let’s break down everything you need to know about betting on Pitt vs. UNC.

Pittsburgh vs. North Carolina Odds – Game Preview

Almost every single set of eyes watching this game on Thursday will be focused on Sam Howell and Kenny Pickett. Sure, there will be a few of us that only care about the Pittsburgh vs. North Carolina odds. But, for the most part, people will be comparing the two NFL-ready QBs.

On paper, that matchup should favor North Carolina and Howell. Howell has been staring for the Tar Heels since his true freshman season. Howell entered UNC as the No. 3 dual-threat QB in the country in 2019 and has owned the starting job ever since. He’s been projected to be an NFL starter throughout his entire career and for good reason.

As for Pickett, he didn’t have the same kind of experience as a recruit, but he’s also been a starter since 2019. Still, as a three-star recruit from NJ, there was little-to-no hype surrounding his time in Pittsburgh. That was until this year.

Now, Pitt boasts one of the best offenses is college football, is 7-2 on the season and has a win over Clemson on the year. The only issue is that they seem to play down to their competition with their two losses coming to Western Michigan and Miami

Pittsburgh vs. North Carolina Odds

With Pitt coming in and riding high during one of the best seasons in recent program history and UNC suffering a disappointing season, it should come as no surprise that Pittsburgh vs. North Carolina odds clearly favor the Panthers.

Head coach Mack Brown will have his team ready to play, even on the road, but that might not be enough to get a win or even make it close, according to the sportsbooks.

Right now, the latest Pittsburgh vs. North Carolina odds have the Panthers as a 6.5-point favorite and -225 on the moneyline. Those moneyline odds give Pitt a 69.2% implied probability to win outright.
