Syracuse +1 1.1% Free Play
Duke is getting too much credit here for a team that is 0-4 and being favored on the road. Yes, they showed up and looked better against Virginia Tech, but a lot of that was smoke and mirrors. 7 of their 31 points came on a muffed punt, and they also faced a Virginia Tech without their DC, and several key starters and contributors from the secondary.
Syracuse here comes off the bye, with extra time to prepare for Duke, and they were able to force turnovers in this game last year at +3. Their 3-3-5 defense has given opponents headaches especially early in games. They are +6 TO margin on the season forcing 10 in 3 games, while Duke has forced 8 in 4 games, they have given it up 15 times. Predict the TO battle, and cover the spread. I think Syracuse should win that battle and give the offense that looked better against Georgia Tech some extra possessions here.
