Syracuse basketball odds: SU a weaker favorite over Pitt this time

The Syracuse men’s basketball team is favored to beat Pittsburgh again, but not as strongly as in their first matchup.

SU is a 4.5-point favorite about Pitt for Tuesday night’s game, according to odds published by BetMGM, Caesars Sportsbook, DraftKings, FanDuel and BetRivers. The over/under is 139.5, according to most betting sites.

Note: Online/mobile sports betting is now legal in New York state, but wagers on in-state college teams, such as Syracuse University, are still prohibited for both home and road games even if played in another state.

The Orange were previously a double-digit favorite over the Panthers in their first game this season and delivered with a 77-61 win at the Carrier Dome on Jan. 11. But SU won’t have the home court advantage for the second meeting, traveling to Pittsburgh’s house at the Petersen Events Center.

Syracuse (9-10, 3-5 in the ACC) is currently below .500 again after a 79-59 loss at Duke on Saturday. SU will be shorthanded tonight at the guard positions as Symir Torrence will miss the game with a right knee injury.

Pittsburgh, meanwhile, lost 75-48 at Clemson on Saturday, dropping to 7-12 this season and 2-6 in conference play. A win over Syracuse, though, could boost Pitt’s ACC standings.

Tonight’s game (Tuesday, Jan. 25, 2022) will be broadcast live at 8 pm on on the ACC Network. Here are the local channel numbers for ACCN in Central New York:
