St. John's vs. Syracuse,
02/10/2013 15:00 EDT,
Score: 58 - 77
Point Spread: +13½/-105 St. John's
Today's winner is St. Johns over Syracuse.
Syracuse isn't looking like the unbeatable foe that they did a few months ago. The Orange are averaging 65.9 PPG in Big East play while posting 82.0 PPG in Non-Conference matchups. James Southerland is out due to eligibility issues and DaJuan Coleman will also be sidelined with a knee injury. Overall, the squad is having problems moving the ball around and true setbacks from beyond the arc. SJU is 6-1 SU and 5-2 ATS their L7 and is right on the bubble for Big Dance consideration. The Red Storm have had some injury issues of their own but bet you bottom dollar that Steve Levin will have his starters on the floor for the tip-off. The road team is 13-3 ATS their L16 meetings in the series. The Red Storm are 6-2 ATS their L8 games played at the Orange and 5-2 ATS their L7 games played vs. the Big East. The Orange are 2-5 ATS their L7 games played vs. teams with a winning record and 2-5 ATS their L7 games played against the Big East. Take St. Johns. Thank you.
