Admittedly, the Orange haven’t fared too well at the betting window this season. The Orange are off a big win and cover (vs. BC) last time out though and I expect a matchup against mighty Duke to bring out the best in them.
Last season’s two meetings were both decided by six or fewer points. The Orange eked out a 2-point OT win (91-89) in the game here at Syracuse, an “instant classic” which prompted Jim Boehim to comment:
“If you paid $3,400 on the market for some courtside seat, it was money well-spent. You should be happy that you did. And if you sold your tickets for this game, you should be ashamed because you made some money and missed an epic.”
While they’ve had their struggles when “laying points,” the Orange have quietly gone 3-1-1 ATS when listed as underdogs. Don’t be surprised if they rise to the occasion once again. Consider taking the points with SYRACUSE.
