Syracuse is 12-3-1 ATS in their last 16 Thursday games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games. The over is 5-1 in Syracuse’s last 6 games. Duke is 7-0-1 ATS in their last 8 Thursday games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 neutral site games. The over is 5-1 in Duke’s last 6 games. The favorite is 5-0-1 ATS in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings.
Duke swept the season series this year by scores of 97-72 and 79-59. Not having Boeheim is going to really hurt the Syracuse offensive attack and will put even more stress on a bad Syracuse defense to get stops. I expect a lot of points to be scored in this game, but I like Duke to win going away.
