For more than one hundred years and over one hundred games, Pitt and West Virginia have, well, hated each other’s freaking guts. Now, for the first time in more than ten years, the Backyard Brawl is back being played for the opening game of the each team’s season at Acrisure Stadium in Pittsburgh. It’s been more than ten years since these two teams have played one another, and as you can imagine, the tension has grown higher than West Virginia’s acceptance rate (84%).
Despite all the rivalry involved, this is an easy game to pick. Pitt is coming off of a historic season, winning the ACC Championship, and other than Kenny Pickett and Jordan Addison, the team hasn’t lost much since last season. West Virginia has struggled under the helm of Neal Brown for the past few years, while Pat Narduzzi is under a fresh new contract and hot to keep his value up by leading Pitt and new QB Kedon Slovis to a first game victory. When you combine all of that with a home field advantage, a completely sold out student section, and a Thursday under the lights, there’s no doubt that Pitt takes home an easy victory in the season opener. Bet $5 on Pitt and win or lose (you’ll win), you can take your free $200 from DraftKings!
