The Syracuse Orange will be on the road to take on the Duke Blue Devils on Saturday, January 22nd.
The tip-off is set for 12:00 ET from Cameron Indoor Stadium.
The Blue Devils started off as a 13 point favorite and that number is now up to 13.5. The total has gone from 158 to 157.5.
I know that Syracuse will always have name recognition, but they have not been all that impressive so far. They have really been an up-and-down basketball team.
The Orange did pick up a win over the Clemson Tigers on Tuesday by a score of 91-78. They will look to string together some wins as they face the Blue Devils on the road.
Besides when they faced Auburn earlier in the year, I do not feel these guys have seen anyone on the level of Duke so far. Without a doubt, they are going to have their hands full on Saturday afternoon.
A lot of different guys stepped up for them in the win over Clemson, which is always a good sign. The leading scorer was Buddy Boeheim, who had 25 points and 5 boards. Also, Joseph Girard had 23 points and 5 assists. If this team is going to get it done on Saturday, their best players are certainly going to have to step up big time.
Duke Blue Devils
Duke had had a very good season, but just like anyone else, they are not a perfect team. We have seen that they can be had on any given day.
The Blue Devils come into this game with a record of 14-3. At almost twenty games into the season, they are pretty much playing how a lot of people thought they would be.
This team lost to the Florida State Seminoles on Tuesday by a score of 79-78. It was a game they had a chance to win, but they fell short in the overtime period. I get that it was just one game, but that was definitely one that should have been in the win column for them.
I was really not impressed with the way they played defense in the loss to FSU. All too often, did their opponent get too easy of looks and that is the sort of thing that just cannot happen.

Free Syracuse Orange vs. Duke Blue Devils NCAAB Summary:
Syracuse is going to try and partially change the narrative that they cannot beat good teams this year. It will certainly be no easy task for them when they face this kind of a team in a hostile environment.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Syracuse ATS
It would not shock me at all if Duke came out a little extra energized and focused in this one, as they know they let a game slip away from them against the Noles.
The Blue Devils are certainly the better team here, but the Orange are no pushover. I can see them being in this for a bit and being competitive in it.
For me, the spread is just too high to lay with Duke. I would say they win the game, but I like Cuse to cover.
I like Syracuse at +13.5 here.
