Tips For Betting On Syracuse Connecticut – Ninth-Ranked Orange In Tough At Connecticut Wednesday

Posted by Washington Tucker on 2/11/2013 6:04:31 PM

If we have learned anything from Big East play so far, it’s that there is no such thing as a guaranteed sports betting win in conference play. That is the message that hit the ninth-ranked Syracuse Orange hard at the end of last month, as they lost back-to-back games at both Villanova and Pittsburgh after reeling off six-straight wins to open their conference schedule. The Orange have since bounced back at home, but will be back on the road this Wedneday when they travel to face a very talented rival in the Connecticut Huskies.

College Basketball Sportsbook Line: Syracuse – 1.5

The Huskies have won four of their last five to improve to 6-4 in Big East play, and bounced back strong after a loss at St. John’s by taking care of Seton Hall on the road. Connecticut will look to build on that effort with three-straight at home, and they can close the gap between them and Syracuse to one game with a win.

The Orange self-destructed in each of their last two road games, and it’s somewhat of a concern that they have lost three games to unranked opponents already away from home this season. Rebounding has been a strength so far this season for a team that ranks 10th in the nation with over 40 per game, and they will need to win that battle at both ends of the floor as they look to overcome a hostile environment. Brandon Triche and CJ Fair have each averaged over 13.5 points per game this season, but after combining for 34 points in the loss to Pittsburgh it is clear they need more help. Michael Carter-Williams and Jerami Grant went a combined 4-for-20 in that loss.

Junior guard Shabazz Napier has done it all for the Huskies this season, averaing17 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 4.1 assists, and needs to play his best basketball against the toughest opponents. With Ryan Boatright averaging 15.6 points and 4.6 assists it is no surprise that Connecticut is getting the job done at home, but it will need a more steady presence under the basket when it comes to rebounding. The Huskies are averaging under 33 rebounds per game so far this season which ranks them outside the top 250 in the nation, and that could cost them if they give the Orange too many second chances.

College Basketball Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

Considering how crazy the Big East has been so far and what we have seen at the top, it wouldn’t be a major online betting shock if Syracuse fell short. Hartford is a tough place to play and with the Huskies looking to make a major statement at home, the Orange could become the victim of an upset one more time.
