Shane’s Free Pick
Syracuse’s defense wasn’t exactly elite in the last game, and Georgia Tech is going to find offensive success against the defense. I do expect the strong offense from Syracuse to continue here, and that is going to lead to this game being higher scoring. I expect this game to go over 165 points. Back the over.
