Against The Spread Pick
The Syracuse Orange head out on the road in ACC play as they visit the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. The Orange have built up some momentum with a current three-game winning streak. That streak includes victories over Virginia Tech and Virginia. The Irish rebounded from back-to-back losses with a win over Georgia Tech in their last game. Syracuse is 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games, while Notre Dame has fared quite well against the spread in their last eight, covering in six of those. The Orange have won eight of the last 12 head-to-head meetings. This game will likely be tightly contested, and a Syracuse win could be likely, but given Notre Dame’s recent success against the spread, backing the Irish to cover four points is the right play.
Over Under Pick
The last two meetings between Syracuse and Notre Dame were back and forth and quite high scoring. The Orange came up one point short in their most recent meeting that saw Notre Dame win 88-87. The Irish have liked the under in recent games, while Syracuse has been heavy on the over. Two of Syracuse’s last three games resulted in totals higher than 125. That includes their most recent game finishing with a total of 140. Notre Dame has been held under 70 points in two of their last three games. If both teams can’t reach their average, then this game’s total isn’t going to reach 140.5 points. Backing the under is the smart play here.
