A great game on tap Monday night between Virginia and Syracuse has Gambling911.com pitted against our friends at Bookmaker, who have been very good at making picks this season.


Bookmaker has Virginia winning by 8 points against Syracuse, covering what is now a -6 point Cavs spread.  The line had been -7, dropped to -5.5 and has since bounced back to -6.  Action  was 75% on UVA by mid-afternoon.

Gambling911.com was giving Syracuse a 58% chance of covering and counting this as a free pick

The Orange have played competitively against Virginia in the overall series.. 

This is only the second time of the season that Syracuse will play a home game as an underdog.

Another motivating factor for the win...From Syracuse.com:

Syracuse’s last four games have helped it solidify its NCAA Tournament resume, one that currently has the Orange universally projected into the field by a solid margin. Syracuse would eliminate even the wildest concerns with a win.

Aside from Bookmaker backing the other side, Sagarin also suggests the line should be UVA -8.  These factors are keeping us from boosting the Orange's chances any more than 58%.
