In simplest terms, Connecticut has a decent defense and a bad offense. Their QB, Chandler Whitmer, can’t be relied upon when needed. If they fall behind and can’t lean on the running game, they’re in big trouble. Syracuse is a tougher team in all areas. They play harder, and they’re better coached. Ryan Nassib also offers more stability from the QB position.
Oddsmakers currently has Syracuse as -4 point favorite with the total at 43
