Bet on Syracuse (-26) Because…
Syracuse has won its last 2 games in impressive fashion. The Orange dominated Virginia Tech 31 to 17 at home as a -23 dog on Oct. 15. In that game, Syracuse held VA Tech to 468 total yards while racking up 561 yards. On Oct. 22, Syracuse beat Boston College 28 to 20 as a +3.5 road dog. In that battle, the Orange held the Eagles to a total of 287 yards. Syracuse has been fantastic in its last 2 games.
Bet on Clemson (-26) Because…
Clemson should overmatch Syracuse in this one. The second ranked team in the nation hasn’t covered the spread in its last 2 games. But those matchups were against NC State and Florida State. Syracuse isn’t nearly as good as either one of those teams. Clemson allows 17.6 points from 317.4 total yards per game on average. The Tigers average close to 480 yards and close to 37 points per game.
ATS Pick & Final Score Prediction
Syracuse has managed to be very good in a few games this season. Beating the Virginia Tech Hokies straight up is big. But the Orange face a huge, steep, climb to get within shouting distance of Clemson on Saturday.
The Tigers have a complete team. They’ve proven it twice this season with the upset win over Louisville as well as the win over Florida State in Tallahassee. It’s difficult to see how Syracuse is going to be close to Clemson in this one since the Orange allow 32 points per game on average. Syracuse’s only hope is to score with Clemson.
I don’t think that’s going to happen. Clemson should have no trouble covering the Week 10 college football spread versus the Syracuse Orange on Saturday.
