Orange upset by UConn

Syracuse lost a game in which it was favored Thursday in the 2K Classic as it fell 83-76 to UConn. The Orange (2-1) trailed 38-32 at halftime and were unable to recover.

College Basketball Betting Trends


The Orange are 8-1 ATS in their last nine Friday games. The over is 6-2 in the last eight Syracuse games versus the Pac-12 Conference.


The under is 7-2 in the last nine Ducks games overall. Oregon is 2-5 ATS in its last seven Friday games.


Syracuse should have more fans in the stands playing closer to home and the patented 2-3 zone defense it runs under long-time head coach Jim Boeheim is difficult to prepare for in such a quick turnaround. I'm taking the Orange here.
