Louisville Traditionally A Safe Play Vs Syracuse

The ACC is currently a jumbled mess with the top seven teams all within one and a half games of each other. Two of those programs are Louisville and Syracuse, who will meet for the first time this season Monday. If history is any indication, the Cardinals are the safer bet with Louisville covering in nine of the past 12 against Syracuse.

Shark Bites
  • Quentin Snider scored just 5 points and shot 1-for-7 from three last season against Syracuse.
  • Syracuse is 7-0 SU and ATS in its last 7 games at home against teams with winning records.
  • The total has gone OVER in Syracuse's last 8 games.

Louisville is back to full strength with Quentin Snider making his return to the team in their last outing after missing six games with a hip injury. Snider took little time to shake off any rust, as the sophomore scored 13 points and shot 3-for-5 from beyond the arc against Miami but did match his season high with three turnovers. Donovan Mitchell is still the offensive centerpiece for Louisville with the guard averaging 18.4 points in conference play.

Syracuse’s typically strong defensive play has been middling this season and has been especially exposed lately with the Orange allowing over 80 points in each of the past two games. Syracuse has a glut of scoring options; four players are averaging double-digit ppg, but Andrew White is still the guy. The guard has averaged 24.2 ppg in the past six outings while draining at least three treys in each of those outings.
