Louisville has won three straight meetings with Syracuse, covering the spread in all three games in the process. These two have yet to meet this season. Louisville has been very strong in ACC play, competing in most games. They also have won four of their five conference games at home. Syracuse has failed to cover in four of its five ACC road games and I think the Orange will struggle to cover again tonight. The public betting is backing Louisville tonight as well.
