Syracuse Orange | ACC (Atlantic)

Overview

Conference Analysis
Win Division (+4500), Win Conference (+10000)
SSA Model Pick: None
The smart bet on Syracuse this year is to pick them to finish last in the Atlantic, not first. The Orange did have an impressive win over Clemson last year, but that was the lone bright spot in year two for Dino Babers. Dungey does return at QB and should be improved, but you can’t take Syracuse seriously in this conference.

Win Total Analysis
5.5 wins (-120/+100)
SSA Model Pick: Under (Medium Confidence)
Consecutive four win seasons leads Southpoint to set this number at 5.5? It’s too high and while the Orange get the guaranteed win against Wagner, this is going to be a tough year for Dino Babers and Co. Five wins is most likely and five wins means the under hits.
