Two teams from the ACC will be battling it out when the Syracuse Orange visit the Miami Hurricanes on Wednesday, January 5th.
The tip-off is set for 8:00 ET from Watsco Center.
The Canes opened up as a 2 point favorite and that number has really not changed. The total has gone from 157 to 152.5.
Syracuse has played decently this year, but they have not been anything all that special. I would expect them to get better as the year goes on, but who knows.
The Orange lost to the Virginia Cavaliers on Saturday by a score of 74-69. The game was tied at halftime, but Virginia did what they had to do in the second half to get the victory.
When you look at their schedule, I have not been all that impressed. So far, there does not seem to be that signature win and that is going to have to change as the year goes on for them.
In the loss on Saturday, the leading scorer for this team was Buddy Boeheim, who had 27 points and 5 assists. He has had a very strong season so far and I expect him to get only get better.
Other teams in the ACC may be getting more attention, but this Miami team has been pretty good. I have liked what I have seen out of them so far.
The Hurricanes come into this game with a record of 11-3. I do not think many people had them starting off the year that well, but it has been good to see.
This club beat the Wake Forest Demon Deacons on Saturday by a score of 92-84. That was an impressive win for them over a team that has also played quite well this year.
The offense was totally clicking for them in their last game, as four players ended up reaching double figures. The leading scorer was Isaiah Wong, who had 25 points and 4 dimes. This is a guy that has been very impressive so far this season.

Free Syracuse Orange vs. Miami-FL Hurricanes NCAAB Summary:
Man, this is what ACC basketball is all about. I feel like this has the chance to be a good game.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Syracuse ATS
Miami is the better team here and they are playing at home, but this will be no easy task for them. If they are on their game, Syracuse can present them with some issues, especially their zone defense, which is never easy to crack.
I can see this being a game that ends up pretty close. I expect the Orange to be sharper in this one after they lost a winnable game to Virginia on Saturday.
The Canes have not been great at covering when going against Syracuse as of late and I would not be surprised if that continues. I get that two is a small number, but I do not trust laying it with Miami.
Give me Syracuse getting the points on the road here.
