|5 SYR (-106) @ pinnacle|
T.M. Selection: Syracuse (10* GAME OF THE WEEK).
Syracuse came from behind in the second half to knock off Notre Dame 75-67 in its last outing and I like the Orange to keep that momentum rolling here. Duke is coming off a 66-65 home win over No. 7 Viringian this weekend as a 2.5 point underdog, but the Blue Devils have been the model of inconsistency this season. Syracuse is still in a hunt for an at-large bid to the Tournament. Overall the Orange average 76.5 PPG, while conceding 70.3. Duke is averaging 75.6 PPG, while allowing 71.2. The Blue Devils though are just 3-8 ATS in their last 11 at home, while the road team is 4-1 ATS the last five in this series. Two of Duke's latest wins came over lower tier teams. Expect the Orange to find a way to get the job done here!
T.M. Prediction: COMING SHORTLY.
