Being an underdog at home against Liberty…my how Syracuse has fallen from just a couple of years ago.
Props to the Flames though. Not a title contender but Atlanta’s best team?
This is the kind of game that could be the beginning of end for Syracuse coach Dino Babers. Or just the end.
A rare independent the Flames are still figuring out what FBS football is all about. They are 4-0 but have no significant wins on the season…yet.
This is the first of three against ACC opponents. All are on the road, of course, and this is the best chance they have to bag a win.
You have to factor in the competition for sure, but Liberty has put up some good numbers this season. They are 7th in rushing offense.
They keep the clock moving and that takes some pressure off a defense that has been hard to solve so far. They are 5th in yards allowed and give up just 18ppg.
It is not an accident that Liberty is favored in this one, but it is still hard to figure out just how good they are.
Syracuse is bad. They suffered their third loss of the season last week and the closest they have been is 11 points against Pitt. Georgia Tech has to be kicking themselves for losing by 17.
Quarterback Tommt DeVito is out for the rest of the season. The next man up looks like Randy Culpepper. He is a senior but if he was any good we would have seen more of him by now.
Syracuse was already one of the worst offense in the FBS. They can’t run it and throwing, even with DeVito has been a challenge. Babers has to reach into his bag of tricks for something.
The defense has been in the middle of the pack this season and maybe there is enough of a size/speed edge for the Orange to keep it close. They can try and make the Flames one-dimensional.

If the Orange have any pride this would be a game where it would come out, right? I am not sure where the team is emotionally.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Liberty -2.5
I like the Flames to win this one and that likely means a cover with such a small number. At the same time, I think this number gets bet down on reputation. Lots are going to be surprised with how this one looks.
For Syracuse to have a chance they have to be able to stop the run. They might be able to for a little while but eventually, the Flames breakthrough. Their own offense is a disaster right now.
