Syracuse has not been good to regional bookies, especially those in Upstate New York, as the Orange enters this year's tournament 18-14 Against The Spread.

Baylor has sat around the .500 mark Against The Spread.

The books will want Baylor to win as a +2.5 dog.  That's because over 80% of the public love is going Syracuse' way.

It is interesting to note that, while a handful of books were moving to +2.5, most were holding at +2. 

There is some indication that the books like Baylor's chances here.

The Bears (19-13) will come into the tournament on a four-game skid.  They made the tournament with two injured stars.  Tristan Clark is out.  Makai Mason will be close to 100 percent Thursday.

"The good thing is, all along [Makai] knew once we got to this point in the season, he was all in. With Makai, the bigger the game, the better he plays," head coach Scott Drew said in a press conference following the Bears' NCAA tournament selection. "I know he'll be more than excited to play, and it'll be great to have him."

The Bears and Orange have played each other twice, with Syracuse winning both meetings in 2006 and 2013.

Sagarin suggests a line of Orange -2.
