Syracuse is 1-5 against the spread in their last 6 games following a against the spread loss. The under is 6-1 in Syracuse’s last 7 games following a against the spread loss.
This is a tough game to call with the spread. LSU will win this game easily, im just not sure if they will win by more then 24. I think since Syracuse is on their 3rd quarterback, they will have trouble agaisnt this defense. With that i think LSU will win and cover this big spread.
