Syracuse vs. Virginia CBB Prediction:
Both teams are coming off wins in the ACC/SEC challenge earlier in the week.
Give me Syracuse here. Judah Mintz is turning into a star for the Orange, I believe he is the best player on the floor on Saturday. Syracuse as a team should have a lot of confidence entering Charlottesville after their blowout win against LSU on Tuesday. UVA is tough at home, but they typically don’t run teams out of the gym due to their offensive struggles at times. Syracuse makes enough shots to hang around in this game and stay within the number.
