The Syracuse Orange are trying to develop momentum and cohesiveness in the weeks before the start of the Big East Conference basketball season. They face Eastern Michigan at home.

Why Eastern Michigan Will Win

Football betting experts do not focus much on college basketball at this time of year, especially since the bowl games are about to start and a whirlwind of activity will emerge as a result. However, for college basketball fans, this matchup between a non-power-conference team and the Big East behemoth from Syracuse will be quite intriguing.

No bet on sports is a sure thing, and Eastern Michigan can point to two main reasons why it can give Syracuse a real run for the money on Monday inside the Carrier Dome in upstate New York: First, the Eagles have won their last four games while playing really good defense. Eastern Michigan has allowed an average of just under 51 points per game in those four contests, locking down on opponents with sound rotations, effective rebounding, and a general commitment to making sure that other teams are one-and-done (no second shots) at the offensive end of the floor.

The other reason to give Eastern Michigan a chance of winning in this contest is that the Eagles haven't played since Nov. 24. They've had more than a full week off and have been able to tend to their studies. The eight-day layoff should give Eastern Michigan fresh legs and a healthy mental outlook. The Eagles know that this is a big game for them; what's important is that they will have the energy needed to attack the Orange for 40 full minutes without any reservations or worries.

Why Syracuse Will Win

Even mma betting experts with only a surface level of knowledge of college basketball are aware that the Orange should win this game big. Eastern Michigan has won four straight, but the Eagles have played small schools from small conferences. Eastern Illinois, Indiana-Purdue-Fort Wayne, Texas-Pan American, and a non-Division I school, Madonna College, have formed EMU's recent list of victims. Syracuse punches in a very different – and much more imposing – weight class than Eastern Michigan does. The Orange have started the season 4-0 and are soon to play the Arkansas Razorbacks in the Big East-SEC Challenge. Syracuse is one of those programs which has enough heft and staying power to lose multiple players from an Elite Eight team (which is what it was last season) and reload for the following season. Hall of Fame coach Jim Boeheim should be able to throw his 2-3 zone defense at a smaller Eastern Michigan team and create a lot of problems for the Eagles' offense in the halfcourt. Eastern Michigan has not seen a team such as Syracuse this season, and that will hurt the Eagles against the Orange.

Who Will Win

Don't think about picking Eastern Michigan here. The Eagles lost to Jacksonville State a few weeks ago and are not as good a team as their record might suggest. Go with Syracuse.
