BBVA Compass Bowl Betting Tips – Chryst To Lead Panthers Against Rebels in Compass Bowl

Posted by Blake Frazier on 12/27/2012 5:51:17 PM

The Pittsburgh Panthers are headed back to the BBVA Compass Bowl for the third-straight sports betting season, only this time they will have the head coach that was with them all season to lead them through it. After watching Dave Wannstedt be dismissed prior to the 2010 Compass Bowl, and then Todd Graham bolt for Arizona State prior to the 2011 Compass Bowl, the Panthers were happy to learn Paul Chryst isn’t going anywhere just yet. Chryst led Pittsburgh to a .500 record in the Big East, and while the season hasn’t gone exactly as planned for him and his staff, they can end it on a high note with a postseason win over the Ole Miss Rebels.

College Football Betting Line: Ole Miss – 3.5

The Panthers will be underdogs in this game even despite having a 3,000-yard passer and 1,000-yard rusher in the same season for the first time in school history. Ole Miss rallied down the stretch for three SEC wins to finish with a .500 record, and is expected to succeed in its first bowl appearance since 2009.

Tino Sunseri completed 66.5-percent of his passes for 3,103 yards and 19 touchdowns compared to just two interceptions this season, and he has gone nine-straight games without a pick. The presence of running back Ray Graham has taken some of the pressure off of Sunseri and the passing attack as he has run for 399 yards and five scores in three games against top-25 opponents, and he will need another big game this week to finish strong. Pittsburgh finished the year strong with back-to-back wins over Rutgers and South Florida, allowing just nine combined points while scoring 27 in each victory.

The Rebels will be in tough to stop the Panthers’ attack, especially after conceding at least 24 points in five-straight games to close out the year in the tough SEC. Ole Miss did rally for a win over Mississippi State in the final game to generate a bit of confidence and momentum, but will need to attack from the outset with running back Jeff Scott leading the charge on offense. Scott rushed for a career-high 828 yards with seven touchdowns this season, while quarterback Bo Wallace led the Rebels with eight rushing scores.

College Football Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

Ole Miss emerges from the SEC battle-tested and ready, but there is something to be said about the pounding they took in the toughest online betting conference in college football and how much they will have left in the tank. If the running game can get going behind Scott and Wallace the Rebels will have a good chance to win, but even still they will have a difficult time covering against a Panthers’ team that was able to finish strong down the stretch with a couple of notable wins as things came together on both sides of the ball.
