Why Bet on the Syracuse Orange?

Syracuse will try to pull itself out of a rut. They faced plenty of struggle lately and would do with a positive performance this time around. The team ended their regular season with four straight losses. But before that, the Orange had a positive run and won seven of their last ten games.

The Orange are among the highest-scoring teams in the league. They average 76.7 points in 31 games played. This is a result of the team’s decent shooting numbers. The statistics highlight an impressive 37.5% three-point shooting percentage (25th). Although their two-point shooting numbers are relatively average at 49.8%, Syracuse remains the better shooter in this contest. Ultimately, the side records 52.3% from the field (80th).

Defensively, the Orange might have a hard time keeping up with Florida State’s numbers. The team allows 75.2 points per game 42.8% opponent shooting. However, the Orange is the better rebounding team of the two, averaging 35.7 total rebounds per game.

Symir Torrence is on the Syracuse injury report after the guard sustained a concussion. He remains questionable leading up to Wednesday’s game.

Why Bet on the Florida State Seminoles?

Florida State closed their regular season run on a positive note. It was capped by an imposing 89-76 home victory over NC State last Saturday. Although the Seminoles were derailed multiple times, they have some momentum to get them going in the ACC Tournament.

Florida State averages 71.5 points per game on 43.8% shooting. The team might not shoot better from the field at 49.6%, but we find a good balance happening between offense and defense. Ball movement also plays a huge role in their search for a win over Syracuse. As a team, they average 14.3 assists per game. Defensively, the Seminoles keep teams to 71.1 points per game on 44.1% shooting. The team records better shooting defense from the perimeter and in the paint. Florida State keeps its opponents to 49.5%.

Cam’Ron Fletcher has seen more playing time this year. His duties as a substitute guard are out of the picture after suffering a season-ending thumb injury. On the bright side, the rest of the Seminoles are healthy and ready for a night out versus Syracuse.
