The odds on this game are a pick with the total at 47.5. Syracuse will have the home crowd edge since this game will be played in New York.  The Orange finished the season at 7-5.  Syracuse has a very good defense that finished 13th in the country, allowing just 18 points per game.  They will be tested by a very good Kansas State running attack.

Syracuse 7-5 SU, 7-5 ATS
The Orange was very good on defense but their offense was poor. The great news for Syracuse is that this is a good matchup for them because Kansas State was terrible on defense.  Syracuse should find some running room in this game as Kansas State was third worst in the country in rushing yards allowed per game.

Kansas State 7-5 SU, 6-6 ATS
The Wildcats have a good offense as they were 25th in the league in points per game.  They did struggle on defense so it will be interesting to see if Syracuse can take advantage. Kansas State likes to run the ball with Daniel Thomas who averaged 125 yards per game which was 9th best in the country.  Kansas State was very inconsistent throwing the ball though so you can expect a lot of running for the Wildcats in this game.
