Syracuse will play the (9-4) Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets also of the ACC in 2015 College Basketball action. The teams will play at Hank McCamish Pavilion in beautiful Atlanta, Georgia. This Sports Handicapper believes the 2015 Syracuse Orange are rebuilding after a great four-year run of being a top ten team. Georgia Tech has struggled since the Bobby Cremins era more than fifteen years ago. The betting line has Syracuse as a two-point road favorite Against The Spread, and the total is not available for Wednesday Night’s game.
The 2014-15 Syracuse Orange have won four straight, including their Conference opener 68-66 at Virginia Tech on Saturday. Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim is a coaching legend and has his work cut out this season. The Orange lost over forty points per game in scoring due to graduation or early entries to the NBA draft. Syracuse best player this season is Rakeem Christmas, a 6’9″ senior center who leads the team with over 17 points per game in scoring. The Betting odds over is 11-3 Syracuse last thirteen overall. “THE CUSE” is 11-5-1 ATS their last seventeen on the road. Syracuse is 4-4 on NCAA Basketball Expert Betting Predictions going over the betting odds total five times, staying under twice and has a push their last eight. Syracuse will need Christmas to keep playing dominant basketball in the paint. That’s key for Orange success and to make it to their thirty-second NCAA Basketball March Madness Tournament on Boeheim’s 39 years. Syracuse doesn’t have any preseason all-conference selections on their roster has plenty of raw talent. Syracuse guard Trevor Cooney is scoring over thirteen points per contest and must help out their youthful point guard.
The 2014-15 Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets head coach Brian Gregory was lured over from Dayton where he had success. Gregory has a tough time at Football driven Georgia Tech, and the alumni are becoming restless. To make matters worse, they team lost three of four double-digit scorers due to departures. Georgia Tech lost at Notre Dame 83-76 in overtime Saturday. The betting odds over is 10-1 the Yellow Jackets last eleven on Wednesday’s. Georgia Tech is 4-5 Against The Point Spread, going over the betting odds total six times and staying under three their last nine. Guard Josh Heath son of former South Florida Head Coach Stan, has transferred in after his dad got fired. Swingman Marcus Georges-Hunt is the team’s best player, and Gregory thinks he’s an all-conference player. The key to a Georgia Tech, win is for low post player Demarco Cox to play up to expectations. The chances seem slim for Georgia Tech to make it to the 2015 NCAA March Madness Basketball Tournament.
Free Pick: Syracuse-2.
