Syracuse Orange vs Clemson Tigers prediction

The Clemson Tigers are getting the benefit of the doubt because they're at home, where they're 11-4 SU this season. Clemson also beat up on Syracuse last month on the road, scoring 77 points on 61 percent shooting. Clemson will be up for this game given it's the last game at the Littlejohn Coliseum and there are 7 seniors on this Tiger's roster. With all that said, we're getting most double-digit points with a Syracuse team that's won 4 straight games. Syracuse has found its offensive groove as of late and would love nothing more than another win to get the best possible seed for the ACC Tournament. Clemson should win, but the value is with Clemson and the free buckets.
