The Syracuse Orange and the Clemson Tigers meet in college basketball action from the Littlejohn Coliseum on Wednesday night. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
Clemson comes into this game as a 3.5-point home favorite with the total for this game set at 143.5 points.
For Syracuse, Peter Carey is out for the season with a knee injury while Clemson’s injury list is clean coming into this game.
Syracuse’s 91-78 win over Clemson made it back-to-back wins for the Orange and seven straight wins for the home team in this head-to-head matchup.
Syracuse is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games and 6-2-1 ATS in their last 9 games overall while the over is 6-1 in their last 7 road games. Clemson is 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games against a team with a winning record and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 games overall.
I’m backing Clemson here. This just feels like a great buy-low spot on Clemson, who really fell off in recent games after starting conference play so, so well. Syracuse is a solid group, but I didn’t like how they looked against Duke and now going on the road to face a somewhat desperate Clemson team eager to get back on track, is going to be a somewhat tall task. Give me the Tigers laying the points.
