Syracuse may not be the biggest dog on the card, but this one’s got a lot of bite. Duke was a team I was high on coming into the season, but it just hasn’t come together as Duke’s struggled to finish games in all four appearances this season. Syracuse hasn’t been great in their own right and both teams have had offensive issues, but the difference in this game for me is the turnover battle. Syracuse is tied for 3rd in the nation with a +6 turnover margin while Duke is near the bottom of the list at -7, and a lot of it has to do with Duke QB Chase Brice who already has 7 interceptions this season. If that holds true, I think Syracuse wins the turnover battle and edges Duke out on the ML here.
