Bryant vs Syracuse Prediction & Pick

While Bryant's performances look impressive on paper, the team has benefited from playing much weaker competition. The Bulldogs have had issues playing against tougher opponents in the past, proven by their eight straight losses to ACC schools.

Meanwhile, Syracuse has had success against American East opponents, going 5-0 straight up in its last five games against the conference. The Orange have also been victorious in 14 of their last 20 home games, proving that JMA Wireless Dome isn't too welcoming for road teams.

With Bryant not used to playing against legitimate competition, backing Syracuse getting the win here.

Final Score Prediction: Syracuse: 83 | Bryant: 79

Bryant vs Syracuse Best Bet

This match involves a pair of teams who tend to hit the over more often than not. After all, the total has gone over in five of Bryant's last six road games, as well as in eight of Syracuse's last 12 overall. Considering how the two sides combined for 169 points in their first-ever meeting two years ago, I'm willing to back the over again as the best bet.

Bet: Over 161.5 Points (-114)
