Against The Spread Pick

This game will see the Syracuse Orange take on the Florida State Seminoles. Both teams are coming off tough losses. Florida State most recently lost to Duke this past week in a battle of top 10 teams. The score to this game was 70-65, so the Seminoles remained competitive pretty much the entire game. They look like a lock for the tournament and are now looking to improve their seeding. Now on the other side is Syracuse, who are having a mediocre season at best. Sitting at 7-6 in the conference and 14-10 overall is not going to be enough to get them in the Big Dance. That being said, the Orange have a massive opportunity to improve their resume. The Orange are 4-2 on the road this season, however Florida State is 12-0 at home. The only problem here is the Seminoles are 5-7 against the spread in their 12 home games. Because of the emotional loss at Duke, I believe Florida State will allow the Orange to hang around and I will take Syracuse as a lean.

Over Under Pick

We have two pretty high scoring teams here as both average at least 74 points or more. On the road, the Orange average 77.3 points, while the Seminoles average 82.7 at home. The over is 6-1 in the last 7 head to head meetings. The over is also 8-0 in road/neutral games for the Orange, so I look for this to be high scoring affair and I will take the over as a lean.
