It was only a few weeks ago that the upstart Orange went on the road and shocked the then-No. 1 ranked Cardinals at the KFC Yum! Arena. That was a part of the five straight weeks that a team ranked No. 1 in the land went down, and it was the start of a three-game skid for Louisville that was never really totally recovered from. Here’s what we do know, though. This is still one tremendously talented team, no matter how you slice it. Many think that this is a club that could run all the way to the Final Four this year, and we aren’t ones to doubt that when push comes to shove. G Russ Smith, G Peyton Siva, C Gorgui Dieng… This is a tough team to try to keep up with. Granted, we really do like what Syracuse is bringing to the table this year, but the ‘Cuse are on a downswing right now with losses to the Georgetown Hoyas and Marquette Golden Eagles in succession. We know that Syracuse can beat the big boys, but can it beat the big boys consistently enough to get the job done against arguably one of the best teams in the nation? Throw in the factor of revenge, and it seems like this game is made for the Cards to win.
Louisville vs. Syracuse Pick: Louisville Cardinals +1.5
Louisville vs. Syracuse Prediction: Louisville 68 – Syracuse 63
