Syracuse is 6-0-0 ATS since March 1st, and they have covered 10 of their last 12 tournament games against the spread since 2015. This is Syracuse’s 7th appearance in the Sweet 16 since 2009. In their victory over West Virginia, Buddy Boeheim once again led the Orangemen with 25 points. Boeheim has averaged 28 ppg in his last four games, shooting 55% from 3-point range.
The Houston Cougars currently have a 26-3 record and have won their last 9 games. In their previous game, Houston trailed Rutgers by 10 points with 9 minutes left; then outscored Rutgers 21-8 the rest of the way to get a 3-point win. The Cougars could fall behind again here if they allow Syracuse to get too many open 3-point shots. Syracuse hit 45% of their 3-pointers against West Virginia, and that helped them to a 75-72 victory. Houston must play strong defense, as they don’t want to get into a 3-point shootout with this team.
