It’s MLK Day, and that means that we have basketball picks going all day long, including in the afternoon for the clash between the Bearcats and the Orange. Syracuse is coming off of that huge win over the Louisville Cardinals, a win that will surely catapult them into the Top 5 in the nation, while Cincinnati is rolling as well with a third straight win in Big East play against the Marquette Golden Eagles over the weekend. It’s a short turnaround for both teams, and both are coming off of tremendously emotional games. F Sean Kilpatrick is coming off of a 34-point game against Marquette, and we just don’t think that he is going to be able to duplicate that. If not for overtime and Kilpatrick’s efforts, the Bearcats would have played their fifth straight ‘under’ game to start Big East play. Syracuse has consistently held teams in the 60s or fewer, allowing no more than 68 points in any game since December 22nd. Three of the last four failed to reach the ‘total’ in this series as well. With tired legs coming off of such emotional games, this could be another one of these lazy, low scoring duels in the Big East that comes right down to the wire. We don’t trust Cincinnati quite enough yet though, so we’ll back the ‘under’ instead.
Cincinnati vs. Syracuse Pick: Under
Cincinnati vs. Syracuse Prediction: Syracuse 63 – Cincinnati 55
