West Virginia vs. Pittsburgh featured odds of Pittsburgh -4 ½ and that was the team that the betting public was on unanimously.  It was the most bet on game Thursday as we head into the March Madness season. Bookmaker.com had the number at -4 ½. 

Pittsburgh's strong play in recent Big East tournaments has been overshadowed by its relative lack of success in NCAA tournaments, according to Stats.com.

Pittsburgh (28-3) has advanced to seven of the last eight Big East title games, winning two championships in that stretch. The Panthers, though, haven't played in an NCAA regional final since 1974. Their only Final Four appearance came 68 years ago.

The Panthers won last year's Big East tournament by taking four victories in four days. After that exhausting run, they managed to win just once in the NCAA tourney before getting eliminated by Michigan State.

Though they admit they were fatigued, they've vowed not to hold anything back as they try to defend their title.

"Last year, I feel like it affected us a little bit, but now I think we're ready," All-Big East first-teamer DeJuan Blair said. "We have that mindset that we're not going to let anything get in front of us."

We like Louisiana Tech at +1 whereby they have gone 9-0 thus far this season in road games when playing against a team with a winning record.
