The No. 14/16 Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team tips off the 2018-19 campaign tonight against the Eastern Washington Eagles. Everything gets started around 7 p.m. ET at the Carrier Dome, but if you’re not in attendance, you can catch the game on ACC Network Extra/WatchESPN.
SU’s favored by 18.5, which seems about right. Over/under is 134 points, which gets more feasible if Syracuse hits something near the 80-point mark (no guarantee even if one of the injured point guards plays tonight).
Before you jump into the GameThread, be sure to check out this preview from Andrew, and James’s breakdown of everything else you need to know in advance of the matchup. TNIAAM also made its picks, and predictably chose the Orange across the board.
While I know the urge to mention things about Election Day will be strong, please avoid it so we don’t have to have someone policing the thread all evening. The only other thing I’ll say is that everyone please exercise your right to vote before sitting down to enjoy the game.
With that said, leave your pre-, in- and post-game comments below, and G’ORANGE!
