Virginia is a six point favorite tonight against Syracuse. The Cavaliers only have two losses all season, both of them to Duke. Syracuse is playing for seeding now in both the ACC and NCAA Tournaments. The Orange could finish as high as fifth in the conference standings, but no lower than eighth. Syracuse will play on Wednesday night next week in the ACC Tournament irrespective of how it finishes the season.
