Syracuse Basketball Odds

Syracuse basketball isn’t the dominant force it was in the ’80s and ’90s, although games still take place at the Carrier Dome, and the team made the Sweet 16 in the 2021 NCAA Tournament.

Even though New York online sportsbooks can’t yet take bets on in-state NCAA basketball teams, Syracuse is a local favorite for those willing to hop across the state line and bet on the Orange online in New Jersey.

Despite the trip, the Orange still draw a lot of betting action from New Yorkers at NJ online sportsbooks throughout the NCAA regular season and March Madness. Here are the latest Syracuse game lines, NCAA tournament odds and more.

Syracuse basketball betting lines explained

Most Syracuse basketball game lines you’ll find at places like DraftKings and FanDuel will look a lot like this:

Syracuse+3.5 (-110)+132Over 139.5 (-110)
Duke-3.5 (-110)-154Under 139.5 (-110)

The spread is that first number with the odds in parentheses. This line means Duke has to win by four points or more to cover, but the Orange can win outright, or lose by three points or fewer to cover the spread. According to these odds, both bets pay $100, plus your bet back, for every $110 that you wager.

The second number is the moneyline. This is the line for betting on either team to win the game outright, with no spread. Moneyline bets on the Orange (underdog) pay $132, plus your bet back, for every $100 that you wager. Moneyline bets on the favored Blue Devils pay $100, plus your bet back, for every $154 that you bet.

Finally, the third number is the total line, with the odds in parentheses. This is the line for the total combined score by both teams. You bet whether it’ll be over or under 139.5. According to these odds, both bets pay $100, plus your bet back, for every $110 that you wager.
