Against the Spread Pick

The ACC is down this season. These are two programs that might be able to take advantage but they have work to do. I don’t want to say this is an elimination game but it is kind of close. Last week BC really helped their case by dumping Virginia but then they got hammered at home by Georgia Tech, a combination of results that is hard to comprehend. Offense has not been a strength but they should be able to stay in this one. The Orange are off a win on the road against that same Virginia team. Home losses to Virginia Tech and Notre Dame are going to hurt them though. Elijah Hughes is quietly putting together a season that puts him in the conversation for player of the year. If he is the best player on the floor the Orange should win. Look to back the home side here.

Over Under Pick

Most likely this game is played in the 60s. I am going to correlate this pick with the one above and look for the game to go over thanks to Syracuse being able to lean on Hughes to get good shots down the stretch and for them to be able to make free throws to close it out. Might have to sweat it a little but we will get points without timing coming off the clock late. Take the over.
