Syracuse Enters ACC Tourney As An OVER Machine

A critical matchup between Syracuse and Miami highlights the ACC tournament schedule Wednesday. A win likely ensures either team an at-large bid into the NCAAB Tournament and a loss could cause plenty of concerns among their respective fan bases. It may be hard to pick a side in such an important game, but the totals market might attract some interest with the Orange going OVER in 12 of their past 13 games.

SHARK BITES
  • Miami is 2-5 SU in its last 7 games against Syracuse.
  • Syracuse is 6-0 ATS in its last 6 games in March.
  • The total has gone UNDER in Miami's last 4 games against the ACC.

Miami comes into the ACC tourney off back-to-back losses. Though those losses came against tough competition (at Virginia Tech and at Florida State), the Hurricanes offense averaged just 59 points in those games. Ja’Quan Newton has been especially bad with the junior averaging just 4.7 points while shooting 22.7 percent since returning from a three-game suspension. Of course, Miami has been a defensive-focused team, holding the opposition to 63.4 points and a paltry 41 percent from the field this year.

Syracuse has had an up-and-down season full of fantastic wins (FSU, Virginia, Duke) and puzzling defeats (Boston College, St. John’s). The Orange are currently on the bubble and a loss to Miami could be the straw that breaks the camel’s back. Tyler Lydon and Andrew White III torched Miami earlier this season, as the tandem combined for 42 points and 17 rebounds while shooting 53.8 percent from the floor.
