Syracuse Orange Team Facts

  • Syracuse has lost each of its last 11 games as an underdog.
  • Syracuse has failed to cover the spread in each of its last eight games in November.
  • Syracuse has lost the first half in 15 of its last 19 games against conference opponents.
  • Seven of Syracuse's last eight games have gone UNDER the total points line.

Pittsburgh Panthers Team Facts

  • Pittsburgh has won each of its last 12 matches as a favorite when playing with a rest disadvantage.
  • Pittsburgh has failed to cover the spread in each of its last four games as a favorite against non-AP-ranked teams.
  • Seven of Pittsburgh's last eight games as a favorite against Syracuse have gone UNDER the total points line.


Syracuse comes into this game in shambles and they are on a five game losing streak. The Orange started the season with four straight wins, but it looks like they have pretty much given up on the year, as they have shown very little over their last four games. Pittsburgh has lost three games in a row and has been out scored 82-14 in their last two games. Both teams have struggled to score in recent games, but I cannot back this Syracuse team with how they have played. Give me Pittsburgh to get the win at Yankee Stadium.
