Syracuse-Cincinnati odds: Orange underdogs on the road

The Syracuse Orange head to Cincinnati as underdogs to take on the Bearcats.

Andy Lyons

The Syracuse Orange look for their third straight win when they hit the road as underdogs to take on the Cincinnati Bearcats. Syracuse opened as 7-point underdogs but the line has since gone done to 4.5 points at most sportsbooks. The total for the game is 56 points.

Syracuse is coming off back-to-back wins, most recently defeating the South Florida Bulls 37-36 and covering the spread as 3-point dogs. The cover moves the Orange up to 3-5 against the spread on the season.

Cincinnati fell 34-31 to the Louisville Cardinals in overtime last week, but covered the spread of 3.5 points as underdogs. The Bearcats are now 4-3 against the spread on the season.

Both teams feature offenses quite capable of moving the ball, but in different ways. Syracuse features the nation's 16th-best passing offense while Cincinnati has the 19th-best passing offense in the country. The Bearcats are undefeated at home on the season, but only 2-2 against the spread in Cincinnati.
