After two straight wins, the bowl-eligible No. 19 Syracuse Orange (6-2, 3-2) look to keep the hot streak going — this time on the road — against the Wake Forest Demon Deacons (4-4, 1-3). Oh, what’s that? Neither of these teams stop opponents much on defense? Cool, cool...

If you thought Syracuse and Wake were cruising toward another high-scoring affair, well, Las Vegas agrees with you. The Orange are favored by six points in a game where the over/under is at a lofty 77.5 (!!!) points.
