No matter which one of several betting websites you might prefer, Pittsburgh is going to come across as a very attractive choice this upcoming weekend. Temple started brightly this past Saturday against Rutgers, bolting to a 10-0 lead and giving its partisans hope that an upset was in the making. However, the Owls couldn't build on that early start. It was as though they threw all the punches they had and then ran out of energy.
Rutgers scored 35 points in the second half and cruised to a 35-10 win, allowing Temple just three points in the game's final three quarters. Temple is simply an under-resourced team that is trying to punch way above its weight in the Big East this season. Do keep in mind that from a legal online sports betting perspective, Temple frankly should have begun to play in the Big East in 2013. It was rushed into the league because the Big East needed an eighth member to balance out its football schedule, given the fact that TCU and West Virginia departed while Boise State's entry was delayed until next season.

Temple should be playing in the Mid-American Conference for a final season. The Owls' lack of adequate preparation time for a Big East schedule is something that has hurt them already; it should continue to hurt them against a Pittsburgh team that's much stronger at the line of scrimmage. Take the Panthers in this situation.
