Syracuse vs. Clemson College Basketball Prediction
The Orange are 2-6 against the spread in their last eight games and are 1-5 against the number in their last six on the road, but with the Tigers sitting at 2-5-1 against the spread in their last eight games, I don’t trust either team when it comes to the side. (The underdog is also 5-2 against the number in the last seven meetings between these two teams, but three points doesn’t feel like enough when it comes to backing ‘Cuse.)
That said, the over is 16-5 in the Orange’s last 21 games as an underdog, is 45-18-1 in their last 64 road games and is 39-19 in their last 58 games as a road dog. The over is also 4-1 in the Tigers’ last five games as a favorite and has cashed in seven of its last 10 home games when facing an opponent with a road winning percentage of less than .400.
