LINE: Duke -1
ATS PICK: Syracuse
– Bet on this, BetMGM latest line
Of course this has to be the No. 1 steer-through-the-skid call of the week as it matches up our two biggest love/hate ATS teams of the early season.
Syracuse owed us for not covering against North Carolina – it was one completed pass away from covering the 22 – and it came through in a big way the following week by covering the 22 with ease in the 21-10 loss to Pitt, and nailed the layup of a call as an underdog at home against Georgia Tech, winning 37-20.
The call from the start of the season was that Syracuse was bad, just not that bad.
Our other darling has been Duke, also in a love/hate sort of way.
Loved Duke getting rolled by Notre Dame, and it covered the 20.
Duke owed us. Loved Duke covering against Boston College, if not winning outright, and it got trucked by 20.
Duke owed us, and it finally paid off as it didn’t come close to covering the 5.5 in an 18-point loss to Virginia.
And then came last week.
Virginia Tech was, is, and should’ve been 10.5 points better than a Duke team with turnover problems, and then for the first time all year it won the turnover margin as it covered.
So understand and be warned that this pick is out of pure spite for Duke messing us up three times in the first four tries …
Syracuse as an underdog at home. It’s a moral imperative.
