Crawford leads Wake Forest in scoring on the year with 16.7 PPG and 4.9 APG. Also in double-figures for the Deacons are Keyshawn Woods (12.1 PPG) and Doral Moore (11.2 PPG; 9.6 RPG).
Over on the Syracuse side, they’re currently 19-12 this season. The Orange had lost three straight games, but took a shocker over Clemson on Saturday. In that one, Syracuse forward Oshae Brissett put up 17 points and six boards.
Tyus Battle leads the Orange in scoring this year with his 20.0 PPG. Also in the double-digits club for Syracuse are Frank Howard (15.2 PPG; 5.0 APG) and Brissett (14.7 PPG; 8.7 RPG).
Wake Forest is 3-7 ATS in their last 10 Tuesday games and 1-4 ATS in their last five neutral-site games. The Demon Deacons are also 3-9 ATS in the last 12 following an ATS loss and 3-13 ATS in their last 16 versus the ACC.
Meanwhile, the Orange are 6-14 ATS in their last 20 following a straight-up win and 3-12 ATS in their last 15 following an ATS win. Syracuse is also 1-5 ATS in the last six neutral-site games and the under is 4-1 in the last five neutral-site games.
Wake Forest has lost six games since January 31, and though they’re scoring well more often than not in that time they’re also allowing a lot of points on the other side. Syracuse has been pretty unpredictable recently, but that big win over Clemson on Saturday has to count for something. I’m going to go with the Orange to cover here.
