March Madness Odds & Picks -- Syracuse vs. Dayton: Are We About to See Some "Orange Crush"?


The First Four of this tournament event was held on Dayton's home floor, but that means little to them, as they are playing this game more or less as the visitor. Expect plenty of Syracuse fans in attendance, as this venue was only 150 miles from campus.

In the March Madness odds that have been posted on this game, Syracuse is a seven-point favorite, with the total listed at 127 points.

You always like to see balance in a team, and Dayton certainly brings some of that to the table. But it is often a new experience for teams to go up against the 2-3 matchup zone that coach Jim Boeheim has designed. Let's put it this way – Western Michigan, the opening-round opponent for the Orange, saw this same kind of alignment twice this season, because Eastern Michigan is coached by a former Syracuse assistant, and the Broncos still couldn't make heads or tails of it.

Syracuse likes to think it has a second wind right now. Remember that this team won its first 25 games and was ranked atop both major polls, then lost five of their last seven games to close out the season. Well, perhaps this is a NEW season, kicked off by the 77-53 rout of the aforementioned Western Michigan team. What some March Madness bettors worry about, though, is that Syracuse may have shot well over its head, as they hit 49% in the Thursday game. However, Jerami Grant back in action, this team is much more confident.

So is Syracuse ready to make the kind of move many people suspected they would a month and a half ago? The experts from Final Score Network believe they know the answer, and that you can make a profit this Saturday with their advice. Please don't hesitate to contact them, as the NCAA Tournament waters are tricky, and sometimes an experienced hand can go a long way.
