Syracuse (-5) over Clemson
8 p.m. ET
Clemson is win less on the road this year and 2-6 ATS their last 8 road contests. Good spot for Syracuse here as they catch the Tigers coming off a hard fought conference win as a home underdog against Florida State so it looks like a prime letdown spot for Clemson. This is a huge game for the Orange. They are 0-2 in the ACC this year and haven’t gone 0-3 since 1992. Syracuse is not loaded but are a solid 11-5 and should be able to handle most of the ACC at home particularly a team like Clemson. This is also the last game before Jim ” I saw nothing” Boeheim comes back from suspension. Cuse is coming off a loss to Miami in which they gifted the game to the Hurricanes. Syracuse’s match-up zone created huge problems for Miami as they only shot 34% from the field, including 3-25 from 3-point range. Orange guard Malachi Richardson looks like he finally find his stroke from deep, shooting 5 of 6 from downtown against the Canes. Tigers have struggled defensively and are 168th in the nation defensively. It’s a must win for Syracuse and they get it.
