Virginia vs. Syracuse Pick

CBB Predictions: Virginia Cavaliers vs. Syracuse Orange 2/4/17

Will No. 9 Virginia be able to go on the road and handle Syracuse when the two meet up today at Noon ET?

According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Virginia is favored on the road today, as the Cavaliers are getting odds of -6.5 points against Syracuse. The over/under total for the game is listed at 125 points. Virginia has won three of the last four in this series, but the Orange have covered in two straight meetings.

Virginia is a tough team to deal with, but Syracuse comes in hot. My issue with the Orange is that they have had to win with big offensive numbers and I don’t think they can get that today. They have lost their last three when being held to 75 points or less. Virginia hasn’t allowed that many points to a team in weeks. I think the Cavs will continue to stifle teams with their defense and pick up a comfortable road win.
