Will Syracuse have any trouble at home when the Orange play host to Buffalo tonight at 7PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Syracuse is favored at home tonight, as the Orange are getting odds of -11 points against Buffalo. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 147 points. Tonight’s game takes place from the Carrier Dome in Syracuse, New York and will air live on the ACC Network.

Syracuse is coming off an 86-79 win over Georgetown this past weekend for its third straight victory. The Orange are now 9-1 on the season, with the lone loss coming against Kansas. Syracuse is just 4-5 against the spread, but it has covered in two straight games. The Orange are averaging 73.6 points per game on offense while allowing 63.4 per game on defense. Syracuse is led by Tyus Battle, who averages 21.5 points per game. Oshae Brissett is adding 14.7 points and 9.7 rebounds per game.

Bet on Buffalo vs. Syracuse

Syracuse has won two straight meetings with the Buffalo, with the last encounter coming in 2001. While Syracuse is just 1-4 against the spread in its last 5 home games, the Orange are 7-1-1 ATS in their last 9 against MAC opponents. They also have covered in nine of their last 19 against a team with a winning road record. The public betting is strong with Syracuse today and I think the Orange will be strong at home and make it work.
