With rivalry week in full swing, the Syracuse Orange are making their rounds through the ACC with ease. Things should get easier on Saturday night in the Carrier Dome when the North Carolina State Wolfpack come calling. Coming off an improbable win, the Orange hope to grab their 25th consecutive win of the season against a Wolfpack squad that has won two straight and is just 6-5 in the ACC this season.
Shocking win over Pitt propels Syracuse
With just seconds left in their game versus Pitt this week, the Orange got a big lift from Tyler Ennis, who hit a 35-footer to send the Orange to a 24th-straight victory. The Orange are enjoying their first season in the ACC, absolutely dominating their conference opponents along the way. With North Carolina State coming to town, the Orange could let this one slip away as a trap game, but they will do everything to make sure this does not happen.
Wolfpack out to make a statement to the country
The NCAA tourney is not too far off, and teams are beginning to make things difficult for the selection committee. The Wolfpack can become one of those teams with a win on the road over the undefeated Orange in this ACC contest tonight. North Carolina State will need a lot to go right on Saturday night in Syracuse for them to win this game since they are just 4-4 on the road this year. They will also have to figure out a way to beat the tough ‘Cuse defense.
In what is not a surprising spread at TopBet.eu for this Syracuse-North Carolina State contest, the Orange are favored by 13.5 points.
