LINE: Syracuse -2, o/u: 131.5
ATS PICK: Syracuse
The NCAA Tournament is a new season and everything gets a reboot, but Baylor was awful over the last several weeks. It’s coming into this thing on a four-game losing streak and dropping seven of its las 11 games.
Okay, so Syracuse didn’t exactly burn it up with losses in five of its last seven games seven of its last 11, too, but it dropped games to Duke (twice), North Carolina, Florida State, Virginia – there weren’t any real lightweights.
Both teams are long and athletic, and both teams struggle to score. The difference will be Syracuse’s ability force mistakes, and Baylor makes a ton of them.
They’re similar in a lot of ways, but Syracuse does the Syracuse things a whole lot better.
