Matchup History

Syracuse’s 96-57 win over Florida State back on March 9th, 2022, made it four straight meetings without back-to-back winners, but it was a 3rd straight win for the road team in this head-to-head matchup.


Syracuse is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games against a team with a losing record while the over is 10-1 in their last 11 games following an ATS win. Florida State is 8-2 ATS in their last 10 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a win while the over is 3-0-1 in their last 4 games overall.


I’m backing the over here. I just think that this is a higher-scoring game, especially when both teams have been trending to the over and high-scoring games in a lot of their recent outings. I look for this game to be a track meet from the opening tip, so give me the over here.
