NCAA Saturday Cash-In: New Era Pinstripe Bowl

 
 New Era Pinstripe Bowl
West Virginia Mountaineers (7-5, 5-7 ATS) vs.
Syracuse Orange (7-5, 6-5-1 ATS)
 Line: WV -4, O/U 68.5

Two high powered offenses led by NFL bound high profile QB's highlight this one. This used to be one of the bigger rivalries in college football before West Virginia left the Big East for the Big 12. They have still met as recently as last season with Syracuse posting the 49-23 victory at home.  The Mountaineers got off to an impressive 5-0 start to the season, climbing as high as No. 5 in the country. QB Geno Smith was the leading contender for the Heisman Trophy at the time. A horrible in conference mid-season run saw WV lose 4 in a row and fall off of everyone's radar. The Mountaineers average 41.6 ppg while giving up 38.1.  On the other side of the ball Syracuse comes in having won five of its last six games; their only lose to Big East champion Louisville during that stretch. The Orange average 29.3ppg, giving up 25.7.

The interesting element at play here is the weather. The points opened at 74 and has fallen all the way to 68.5. The snow is falling today in NYC making for interesting playing conditions. The early money was for this game to go way over as both offenses can sling it around. With the weather as it is mistakes will be made allowing for quick points. It may be worth waiting in out until closer to game time to see where the line goes. As it stands right now...
PICK: OVER 68.5
