Cat Basket betting lines

I was doing my daily Pitt round up and came across Zeise's article where he has confirmed what Jason and I have been screaming about for year. Wannstedt always says that guys are going to play but that we just didn't have any situations where we could get that player out there (see: Dickerson, Cross, Fields, Nix, etc.). So that led me into a conversation with a co-worker trying to guess about how much playing time we would see Tino get if the game ended up going to garbage time. So, I'm presenting some Cat Basket lines for you and you can take your picks in our comments section.


# of bubble screens: Over 6.5/Under 6/5

# of draws: Over 13/Under 13

# of plays for Chris Jacobsen: Over 3/Under 3

# of plays for Dan Mason: Over 2/Under 2

# of plays for Tino Sunseri: Over 1/Under 1

# of pass attempts for Bill Stull: Over 20/Under 20

# of pass attempts to Jonathan Baldwin: Over 9.5/Under 9.5

Bill Stull completion percentage: Over 45%/Under 45%

# of sacks by the defensive line: Over 3.5/Under 3.5

# of interceptions thrown by Bill Stull in the game: Over 2/Under 2

# of Punts from inside the opponents 50: Over 1/Under 1


Well folks, there are many other I could come up with, but we will leave it at that for now.

When you say 9.5 pass attempts to Baldwin, is that for this game or for the entire non-conference schedule?

Stull 10/19 with 1 int

Push on Lumpy

Special Teams plays will get Mason the over

One series for Sunseri consisting of a hand-off and two kneel-downs. You know, to get him some game experience.

Ahh, i should have been clear on Mason. I was talking about defensive plays. I will edit it, so that way when people think Johnny doesn't know what he's talking about, you can read here that I edited it.

I agree 100% about Tino haha.


BTW, there will be podcasts coming up.

# of bubble screens: Under 6.5

# of draws: Under 13

# of plays for Chris Jacobsen: Over 3

# of plays for Dan Mason: Over 2

# of plays for Tino Sunseri: Over 1 (# of pass attempts for Tino would be more interesting because I agree that he'll only come in to hand off in mop-up time)

# of pass attempts for Bill Stull: Under 20

# of pass attempts to Jonathan Baldwin: Under 9.5

Bill Stull completion percentage: Over 45%

# of sacks by the defensive line: Under 3.5

Pitt 34, YSU 10

John - Stull had one regular season game last year where he completed less than 45% (Iowa @ 44%) yet you think he'll do that against YSU? And INTs aren't his problem... if anything they are a strong point in his favor; his 3.03% INT average is about top quarter in the NCAA for QBs in 2008.

So, in essence you think Stull is going to go backwards from his body of work last year?

Do agree about Sunseri not seeing much action - we have very young kids at the offensive skill positions (especially RBs and WR - Baldwin has many new added responsibilities this season) and I think Cignetti will want to get them as many snaps as possible so all the the offensive starters are on the same page.
