Syracuse on Saturday night. The over/under total for this game has been established at 42.5.
Rutgers is scoring 29 points per-game behind a strong rushing attack. Joe Martinek has rushed for 729 yards and eight touchdowns this season.
Syracuse is allowing 26.6 points per-game, but has a solid rushing defense that is giving up just 99 yards per-game on the ground. Rutgers quarterback Tom Savage will have to make some throws against the
Syracuse defense in order to cover the odds. Savage has thrown for 1,535 yards with 10 touchdowns and two interceptions this year.
Orange have struggled to just 19.2 points per-game on offense as Greg Paulus has thrown for 1,586 yards with 10 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. The Knights have the top defense in the Big East, holding opponents to 15.6 points and 304.7 yards per-game.
The key to this pick is in Savage’s ability to lead
Rutgers through the air. The
Orange will be looking to take away the running game on defense and Rutgers shouldn’t have an issue limiting
Syracuse’s offense. If Savage can pick up a couple of touchdown passes and put together lengthy possessions for the
Rutgers offense, the Knights should be able to cover with ease. With the spread less than two scores, we suggest a pick of
Rutgers with the over in this Big East matchup.
