    Syracuse at Virginia picks and predictions

    Prediction

    Virginia 68, Syracuse 64.

    Moneyline

    PASS.

    Virginia (-700) will cost you 7 times your potential return, and that’s just too expensive, especially for what should end up being a surprisingly close game.

    Against the spread

    SYRACUSE +11.5 (-115) catching double digits is an absolute gift and one of my favorite bets in a long time. Take advantage.

    Syracuse is a reasonable 5-3 ATS across the past 8 games overall, and it has won 3 of its 4 games outright inside the ACC. The road team is also 7-1 ATS in the previous 8 meetings in this series.

    Virginia has no business laying double digits to anyone, as it has just 1 cover in the past 9 games overall. UVA is 0-4 ATS in the past 4 instances as a double-digit favorite and 1-5 ATS overall on the season giving up 10 or more points.

    Over/Under

    OVER 126.5 (-115) is worth a look.

    The Over is 6-1 in Syracuse’s last 7 games overall while cashing in 5 in a row against teams with a winning overall record.

    The Under is 5-1 in the past 6 at John Paul Jones Arena for Virginia but the Over is 5-0 in its last 5 outings against teams with an overall winning record.
