The Liberty Flames and Syracuse Orange face off on Friday in a Week 4 college football showdown at the Carrier Dome. These two teams last faced off last October and it was the Flames that won 38-21. 

The Liberty Flames sit with a perfect 3-0 record, but this should be their first real test of the season. Liberty has scored at least 45 points in two of their first three games, and they haven’t given up more than 17 points in any of the games. Quarterback Malik Willis is a star and on the season he has thrown for 613 yards, seven touchdowns, and zero interceptions. He is also the teams leading rusher putting up 225 yards and four touchdowns. Wide receiver Demario Douglas is having a nice season with 16 catches for 185 yards and two touchdowns. In this game, Liberty needs another big game from Willis to come away with the victory, and to continue their undefeated season. 

On the other side of this matchup is Syracuse Orange who sit with a 2-1 record overall and their only loss came two games ago against Rutgers. The offense in that game against Rutgers only scored seven points total. In the last game, Syracuse bounced back against Albany 62-24, but they can’t be happy they gave up 24 points in that game. Under center for Syracuse is Tommy DeVito and on the season he has thrown for 388 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions. Running back Sean Tucker is having a big year rushing 51 times for 367 yards and six touchdowns.

Liberty is 8-0 against the spread in their last eight games as a favorite. Syracuse is 4-1 against the spread in their last five games. The under is 4-1 in Liberty’s last five games overall. The over is 6-2 in Syracuse’s last eight games following an ATS loss. The under is 5-2 in Syracuse’s last seven Friday games. 

Syracuse’s offense overall is a big concern to them and I don’t believe DeVito is the guy to keep the Orange close in a shootout. Look for a big game from Malik Willis for Liberty and he is going to win this game in blowout fashion. Back Liberty to win the game and cover the spread.
