The under is also 6-1 in the Orange's last seven conference games, 6-0 in their last six games versus a team with a winning percentage above .600 and 5-2 in their last seven Saturday games. Syracuse has done an outstanding job of holding opponents to 60 points or less all season and Duke could struggle to shoot the ball in a noisy Carrier Dome. While there might not be a ton of value in the side, the total is rip to go under in what should be a tight game throughout.
