Winners of nine out of its last 11 games, the Syracuse Orange return home to the Carrier Dome after a three game road trip. Florida State comes to town riding a three-game winning streak, but the Seminoles are just 1-3 in ACC road games halfway through the conference slate.
This game will be important for Syracuse’s league standing as a win will tie it for fifth in the ACC with Louisville, just 0.5 game back from first place. A loss would move Syracuse to seventh in the conference just behind Virginia Tech as the Hokies would own the tie-breaker.
Syracuse opened as a 3-point favorite in this one but the line has move to Syracuse -2.5. The over/under is set at 135.5. Also worth mentioning, class of 2020 Albany City Rocks guard/forward Andre Jackson will be in attendance for this one. We talked to him last August at the SLAM Summer Classic.
