Syracuse vs Duke

College Basketball 
7:00 PM EST
Rotation #8257
Syracuse +6 over Duke (loss)
Both teams are starting to heat up as they won three straight, but it’s Duke getting all the praise because they knocked off Virginia.  The Cavs also lost to teams like San Francisco.  If you can score you can beat a great defensive team.  Syracuse is a little bit better on offense and defense.  This team has the experience edge as well.  Duke is winning games without Jalen Johnson, but I don’t think him opting out makes this team better.  Duke has lost games this year in Cameron Indoor.  Home court advantage is not a huge factor this year due to limited or no fans.  Duke is a young team and I am interested to see how they do against the Jim Boeheim zone.  I think 6 is too many tonight.  Take Syracuse.
