There is one pick today.
Take Syracuse -1 spread against Georgia Tech for 3% of the bankroll.
These two teams come into this contest currently heading in opposite directions. The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets have lost 4 straight with no hope of making the NCAA tournament this season. It appears that reality is starting to set in for this team and they just suffered another crushing blow to their egos in a close, 2-point loss to the Clemson Tigers in their most recent contest. We expect that the morale of the team is going to start fading and that is going to have a negative impact on their play moving forward. Meanwhile, the Syracuse Orange are still very much alive for a postseason berth and come into this game on a three-game winning streak. They have struggled on the road in year's past, however, this is a very winnable game for them tonight and one that they likely need if they want to stay in contention for the tournament come March.
The Orange are about to embark on arguably the toughest part of their schedule and need to pile up as many wins as possible. The 'Cuse, which will face second-ranked Virginia on Saturday and then play back-to-back games against No. 17 North Carolina and fifth-ranked Duke later down the line. It will be a grueling schedule for the Orange and those three teams are games that they are not expected to win, which makes this contest even more important for them. There will be no question that Georgia Tech will be looking to end their recent losing streak, however, we believe Syracuse's need to win this game will be much more of a motivating factor. They are the more confident team at the moment and that will likely be the difference in this contest. With this game being a near pick'em, we believe the value lies with the team who has been playing better basketball over the last week.
