Game: Syracuse at Connecticut Feb 25 2012 9:00PM
Grade: Winner (100)
Reason: I'm playing on CONNECTICUT. The boxscore shows that Syracuse blew out the Huskies in the first meeting. However, the fact is that game was very close the whole way, before the Orange pulled away at the end. Off a momentum-buidling victory, now playing at home and desperate for a "signature win," I expect the Huskies to give the Orange all they can handle again, this time doing so for the entire game. Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim knows this likely won't be easy. He was quoted as saying: "Connecticut played us evenly for almost the whole game here and then we had a spurt at the end so we know how difficult they can be, it was a two-point game here. I still think they’re a very good team and it’ll be a very difficult game Saturday." Note that Syracuse is 0-3 ATS since the win over UConn. All three of their games since were decided by 10 or fewer points. Note that the Orange won at Hartford last season but that they're 0-4 here at Gampel Pavilion. The Huskies have indeed been struggling in recent weeks. However, their last game was the type they can really build some positive momentum from. Not only did they rally from a big early deficit but the Huskies hit a winning 3-pointer at the buzzer in OT to beat Villanova. While the Huskies may not need a win here to make the tournament, a victory here will guarantee them a spot. They're 3-0 the last three times that they attempted to avenge a road loss. Despite a few non-covers this season, they're also still an outstanding 17-9-1 ATS as underdogs the past few seasons. I expect them to rise to the occasion and improve on those stats here. *10 (Main Event.)
