Syracuse

Now they face a very difficult final couple of weeks as they face off against the two teams they are tied for second with (Marquette and Louisville) as well as against Georgetown again to close the year on the road.

They need to be ready to match a Golden Eagles team that also lost on the weekend and is looking to assert themselves.

The Orange are whole again with the return of forward James Southerland to the lineup but something is off with these guys sometimes.  There is talent there but the scoring is not consistent, in large part due to the fact that even though guard Michael Carter-Williams is second in the nation in assists, his shooting is awful.

When teams sag off and play zone he is not a very effective offensive player and their other scorers are not efficient.

Even though they lost on Saturday the Orange are still looking pretty good.  They seem to be working that zone pretty well – under 60ppg allowed – and have a nice collection of talent.

They are only 4-4 ATS on the road this season but as the game is a pick’em what is more important is that 5-3 record in true road games.

These guys are playable Monday night.

Marquette

After their loss to Villanova – who looks like they will be getting to the tournament after all – Marquette is jammed up with Syracuse and Louisville in second place in the conference.  The finish to the schedule is not as tough as the Orange’s, they play Syracuse and Notre Dame at home before visiting Rutgers and St. Johns. [ad-6571516]

They could easily sweep those four, finish second and have tons of momentum for the post-season.

The Golden Eagles had stars last year in Jae Crowder and D.J.O.  This year they have a more balanced team with an amazing 10 players averaging 10 or more minutes per game.  The deep roster has brought down the numbers on the whole as just a couple players average in double figures in scoring and nobody on the team averages even 5 boards per game.

Against that Syracuse zone I wonder where the scoring is going to come from because there are no great shooters on this team.

Marquette is just not a good matchup with Syracuse this year.  They don’t score the way they have in the past and even though they are a bit bigger that size won’t really bother the Orange.

As a home team in the Big East at a pick they are drawing you in but against an angry ‘Cuse squad they are in danger of coming up short.

Spread Pick:  Syracuse
O/U Pick:  Over
Score Prediction:   Syracuse 77 – Marquette 69
