This is an ugly game for sure, and it isn’t one that we are going to be happy to watch for sure. Syracuse’s offense has fallen off the face of the earth over the course of the last three weeks, scoring a total of just 39 points after putting 41 on the board in Week 1 and at least 28 in each of the next two. Connecticut’s offense is one of the worst in the entire country, though we at least still know that RB Lyle McCombs could go off for a big time game at a moment’s notice. The Orange just haven’t played all that well this year, and they might find themselves on the wrong side of this one if QB Ryan Nassib can’t get going. Nassib has averaged over 100 passing yards less per game over the course of his most recent three games as opposed to his first three games. In the end, the important stat to follow is the fact that UConn is 5-0 SU and ATS in this series dating back to 2007, and save for last year’s seven-point win, all of those victories have come by at least 17 points.
Connecticut @ Syracuse Pick: Connecticut +4
Connecticut @ Syracuse Score Prediction: Connecticut 24 – Syracuse 14
