Cornell Big Red vs. Syracuse Orange

Where: Carrier Dome, Syracuse, NY

When: Wednesday, November 20, 7:30 PM. ET.

The Syracuse Orange will be going for their third consecutive win when they take on the Cornell Big Red on Wednesday night.

Big Red Looking For First Road Win

The Big Red followed up their season-opening win with three straight losses and will be trying to put an end to their losing streak with a win over the Orange on Wednesday, which will give them their first road win of the season.

Cornell hasn’t been great offensively, averaging 69.3 points per game. The team is shooting 43 percent from the field and 28 percent from three-point range.

In their last game, the Big Red were held to 54 points, after shooting 36 percent from the field and 22 percent from three-point range.

Terrance McBride led the Big Red with 13 points and three rebounds. Jimmy Boeheim, the son of Syracuse’s head coach Jim Boeheim, finished with 12 points and two rebounds, while Dean Noll added 10 points and seven rebounds.

Cornell has been average on the defensive end, holding opponents to 70 points per game. They gave up 75 points in their last game and will need to play better against Syracuse if they want to pick up the win.

Orange Going For Third Win In Four Games

The Orange have won their last two games since they dropped their season-opener against Virginia. They will be trying to pick up their third win in a row and third win in their last four contests when they face the Big Red on Wednesday.

Despite the team averaging 64.3 points per game, the Orange have played well offensively, averaging 78.8 points per game in their last two games. The team is shooting 43 percent from the field and 30 percent from three-point range. They shot the ball well in their last game, hitting 59.6 percent of their field goals and 39.1 percent of their three-pointers as they finished the game with 89 points.

Joseph Girard III led the Orange with 24 points and five rebounds. Marek Dolezaj finished with 19 points, four assists, and three steals, while Elijah Hughes finished with 15 points, six rebounds, and four assists.

Syracuse is one of the best defensive teams in the country, holding opponents to 56.3 points per game. They gave up a season-high 67 points in their last game and will need to do a better job if they want to beat the Big Red on Wednesday.

Best Bets for this Game

Full-Game Side Bet

Insiders Status:

Rating:

The Orange are the pick here because they are perfect against the spread in their last six games against teams with losing records and have one of the best defenses in the country. Syracuse is holding opponents to 56.3 points per game and hasn’t given up more than 67 points in a game this season. Even though the Orange are averaging 64.3 points per game, their offensive numbers are weighed down by the fact that they scored only 34 points against Virginia in their season opener. They have played better since that game and 78.8 points per game since then and will cause problems for the Big Red, who are giving up 70 points per game. Cornell’s offense is averaging 69.3 points per game, but the team will struggle to keep up with the Orange offensively because Syracuse doesn’t give up a lot of points, making the Orange the best bet.

Prediction: Syracuse Orange
