The expectations are lower than normal for Syracuse and they are off to bad start in ACC play with a 1-3 record. They can still surprise but I am not holding out hope.
Florida State has the same 1-3 conference record but they have had a really tough schedule to start. This is a must win game at home though.
The Orange are really playing at a slow pace this season. They are using their zone to stifle opponents but are having trouble scoring – less than 70ppg.
Pretty much all their scoring comes from pretty good trio, that all average more than 15ppg. After that group no one averages even 6 per game so obviously depth is a concern.
Tyus Battle, Frank Howard and Oshae Brissett all play 37 plus minutes per game. They are not efficient but it is kind of hard with that heavy workload.
Pascal Chukwu is the heart of their defense. He is over 7 feet and averages more than 3 blocks per game. Even if you can get into that zone D it is tough to score.
Florida State Seminoles
FSU really needed to beat Louisville the last time out. The loss, which was at home, has made this a desperation spot I think.
The Seminoles need to find someway to get their offense going. In four ACC games they have scored progressively fewer points all the way to 69 against Louisville in their last game.
Phil Cofer scored just three points in the loss to Louisville. He is not a prime offensive talent but that level of production is not going to cut it on this tea, they need more.
Syracuse is not a great team but this is going to be a tough game if the Seminoles can’t make outside shots. They are not the greatest at that can go stagnant for long stretches.

Free Syracuse Orange vs. Florida State Seminoles NCAAB Prediction:
FSU will be the favourite here but public opinion on them has to be a little down after the last couple of results.
It is too bad Syracuse isn’t playing great or else this would really be a buying opportunity.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Florida State -6
I like the Orange to keep this one close by frustrating FSU with their pace and defense. The number will be key here as well as the market reaction.
