The Cornell Big Red and Syracuse Orange face off on Wednesday in a college basketball showdown at the Carrier Dome. When these two teams faced in 2019 it was Syracuse that came away with the 72-53 victory. 

Cornell comes into this game with an 8-2 record overall and they have gone 7-1 against the spread. The last game for Cornell came against Virginia Tech, and the defense really struggled in that game giving up 93 points. The offense in that game could only manage 60 points also. Cornell is averaging 88.1 points per game while their defense is giving up 74.4 points per game. Forward Jordan Jones has been the top player for the Big Red averaging 12.7 points while shooting 44.9 percent from the field and 33.3 percent from behind the three point line. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Syracuse Orange who sit with a 6-5 record overall and they have gone 5-6 against the spread. In the last game against the Brown, Syracuse’s offense put up 93 points and that led to the easy victory. Syracuse is averaging 78.9 points while their defense is giving up 76.5 points per game. Syracuse wants to play a fast pace, but in this game it’s going to be important that the defense steps up. Buddy Boeheim has been the top player for Syracuse averaging 18.5 points while shooting 40.1 percent from the field and 30.7 percent from behind the three point line.

Cornell is 6-1 against the spread in their last seven games as an underdog. The over is 4-0 in Big Red last 4 games as an underdog of 13.0 or greater. The under is 4-0 in Orange last 4 home games vs. a team with a winning road record. Cornell is 8-1 against the spread in their last nine games. 

These are two elite offenses and there will be no shortage of scoring in this game. Syracuse especially is going to attack the terrible defenses of Cornell and 100 points isn’t out of the question for them. Back the over to cash. and I expect it to go over 170 points.
