Syracuse vs. Kansas State Free Pick

March 17, 2012

Orangemen ATS

The second round of the NCAA tournament kicks off Friday with a great set of matchups. One intriguingmatchup has the Kansas State Wildcats facing the Syracuse Orange. Syracuse came into the NCAA tournament with just two losses on the season and one of the favorites to reach the Final Four.

Kansas State won their first round matchup against Southern Mississippi 70-64 to cover a 5 � point favorite spread. Syracuse escaped with a victory over the University of North Carolina Asheville 72-65 to make in into the second round. The Orange had been favored by 15 � points and did not cover that favorite spread.

Syracuse comes into the game without their starting center Fab Melo who was ruled ineligible before the start of the tournament. Kansas State has one injury as James Watson is out for the season with an arm injury. The Orange does not have any players listed on their injury report.

The Wildcats are 3-2 SU over their last five games. They lost to Baylor in the Big 12 regular season ending tournament, but recovered with their win against Southern Miss. The Orange is 4-1 SU over their last five games. Their only loss in that stretch was to Cincinnati in one of the Big East tournament�s semifinal games.

Syracuse was shocked by how well UNC Asheville played and was very close to being upset. That game may be what they needed to get back on track. They will definitely miss the force of Melo inside and their opponents will try to take advantage of that.

This game will be a close matchup with Syracuse playing around the perimeter much more than usual. The Orange will play much better ball than they did in their first game of the tournament. Syracuse SU and ATS and the total will end OVER.
