Click Here for the Latest Odds

The Virginia Cavaliers will play the Syracuse Orange in an ACC Game on Friday night at the JMA Wireless Dome in Syracuse, New York.

The Virginia Cavaliers are 2-1 this season after they defeated Old Dominion by a score of 16-14 in their last game. Virginia gave up a go ahead touchdown with a minute left, but was able to drive the length of the field for a game-winning field goal as time expired. The Virginia offense is averaging 17.7 points per game with 236.7 passing yards per game and 176.7 rushing yards per game. Brennan Armstrong has thrown for 710 yards, two touchdowns, and three interceptions, while also running for 150 yards and one score for the Cavaliers this season. Perris Jones has rushed for 186 yards and one touchdown, while Keytaon Thompson has caught 18 passes for 235 yards for Virginia. The Virginia defense is allowing 18.3 points per game and 349.3 yards per game.

The Syracuse Orange are 3-0 this season after they defeated Purdue by a score of 32-29 in Week 3. Syracuse blew a ten-point lead in the fourth quarter, but was able to score the game-winning touchdown with seven seconds left in the game. The Syracuse offense is averaging 37 points per game with 245.3 passing yards per game and 163 rushing yards per game. Garrett Shrader has thrown for 709 yards and eight touchdowns, while also rushing for 201 yards and three touchdowns for the Orange this season. Sean Tucker has rushed for 254 yards and two scores, while Oronde Gadsden II has caught 12 passes for 193 yards and three touchdowns for Syracuse. The Syracuse defense is giving up 16.7 points per game and 340.3 yards per game.

Virginia is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 conference games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 Friday games. The under is 4-0 in Virginia’s last 4 games. Syracuse is 7-1 ATS in their last 8 home games and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 Friday games. The under is 5-0 in Syracuse’s last 5 Friday games.

Both of these teams are coming off of dramatic come from behind wins last week, but Syracuse has been the better team this season. Syracuse started slowly in their last game, but their offense took off in the fourth quarter for the win. The Orange quarterback, Garrett Shrader, is a dual threat quarterback and will be the difference here. I like Syracuse to get the double-digit win here, as the Virginia offense struggles to score points.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
