It’s a Battle 4 Atlantis loser bracket matchup when the Syracuse Orange will take on the Arizona State Sun Devils on Thursday. 

The Sun Devils were defeated by #6 Baylor in a game that wasn’t as close as the final score suggests. After leading in the first half, the Sun Devils were down as many as 22 in the second half. Arizona State shot 35.7% from the field, including 10 of 27 from three-point range. DJ Horne led the Sun Devils with 20 points in the loss.

The Sun Devils are led in scoring by Kimani Lawrence who is averaging 13.6 points and 8.8 rebounds a game. They are also getting double digit scoring numbers from DJ Home who puts up 11.6 points a game. 

The Orange struggled against VCU in their last game as 6 point favorites. They took a second straight loss to fall to 2-2 on the year. Against VCU, Syracuse led in the first half and even to start the second. But Syracuse would begin to miss shots and eventually shot 29% from the floor, including five of 23 from three. VCU pulled away and never looked back en route to the upset. Buddy Boeheim led the Orange with 20 points in the loss.

The Syracuse Orange average 85.7 points per game this season, which puts them 32nd in the nation in scoring offense. The Orange has been below average defensively as they are 282nd in scoring defense by allowing 74.3 points a night. This can explain some of these losses especially the second half crumble to VCU.

Buddy Boeheim leads the team with 20 points plus 3.3 assists per game. Joseph Girard averages 16 points and 5 assists for the orange. They are also getting 15 a night from Jimmy Boeheim. 

The Sun Devils are 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 neutral site games and are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games following a double-digit loss at home.

The Orange are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games following a double-digit loss at home and are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 neutral site games.

I like for Syracuse to bounce back from their loss in this one. This Syracuse team is use to poor regular season starts and after the last game, they should be able to grab a much needed victory and cover this short spread.
