Not sure the Orange are going to be able to keep up w WVU. WVU defense stinks but Cuse still has to put up 50 to win this game? The good thing, it will be outdoors and should be cold

West Virginia - 45                               Syracuse - 38

Mountaineers -4                              over 73.5

When these two were big east foes the favorite was the play. Mountaineers light up the Yankee scoreboard in a post Christmas shootout.

West Virginia - Over

West vir still owes me large for sucking most of season. Syracuse more physical team. Syracuse pulls out a last second play for the medium.

I agree!  The orange have consistently improved on offense so i dont see the pathetic Mounties stopping them, on the other side the cuse can make one or two stops to win or cover.

Anyone else think the over is the best play in this game?? Nassib should carve up that WVU D and WVU should put their points up as well..

VW has better weed. It's as good a reason as any to pick a winner in this game.

This is one my strongest bowl games of this season as all of my criteria are pointing to Syracuse, even to the point that Cuse may actually have a motivational edge for WVa in this one.  For starters, my numbers make the game Syracuse 51 - 42.  There is a strong consensus on WVA of about 75% ( which points to a strong contrarian play on Syracuse ).  Also, my defensive sack % /attempts shows the Cuse being able to harass Geno Smith en ough to keep WV scoring down into the low 40s. Game is in NY and WV was hoping for a bigger more glamorous bowl while Syracuse is glad to be anywhere after the way they played at times.  I suggest a full 3 unit max bet on Syracuse plus the points plus a money line play for a full unit on the Cuse.

I'm liking Cuze and the over but have some concerns about the weather. NY expecting 2-4 inches of snow tomorrow thorugh the evening. Probably a good under 36 1/2 bet for the first half to see what the weather brings.

while still not great, i saw much better defensive play from wvu at the end of the year. also, syracuse can't tackle. i think wvu will beat syracuse with superior speed and tackling.

10-17 pt win by wvu

West Va is probably one of the worst tackling defenses in FBS.  Just look at the scores that other teams have run up on them this year ( OU, KSt, Texas, TTU, Ok St and Baylor all had good days against them ).  Can't trust that WV D on the road where their O may struggle.

Don't get me wrong, WV D is among the worst in all of CFB but  OU, Kst, Tex, TTU, Okst. And Baylor could put up big points on a lot of playoff contending NFL teams... The Big East is garbage, and WVU strength of schedule far out weighs Cuse's .  Weather could slow down the WV air assult which may cause Tavon to line up in the backfield as he did vs OU ( in which he rushed for 200+) WV gets up for Bowls just ask OU, GA, and Clemson...
