On the season in college basketball Zack is 66-25-3 ATS. Today he is just on one play, and it involves a late-night capper. Get it under today’s picks for just $29.

Today I perceived both the NBA and NCAA basketball board as a cautionary board. It’s my personal opinion and other cappers may believe it to be an enticing board. There is one game I would caution all against and that is my —-Stay Away Game Of The Day between Syracuse and Georgia Tech—.

Both of these teams have flirted with both disaster and greatness this season. Syracuse has bounced back nicely in the wins category but still flirted with letting big leads evaporate into losses. They almost blew an early season matchup against Iowa in the final minutes, Louisiana Tech recently, and allowed Virginia Tech to erase a 19 point halftime lead in their latest game. In between all of that was a blown win at Villanova that could cost Syracuse down the road if they end up on the bubble.

Georgia Tech is a new style team that has young talent intermixed with Maryland transfer Charles Mitchell in the low blocks. They’re play has been erratic and inconsistent but the capability of defeating a top 25 team is there on any given night.

The point spread in favor of Syracuse by four is clearly an high indicator that the linesmakers do not believe Georgia Tech can attack Syracuse’s zone effectively. I’m not sure they can either with limited experience in the backcourt and an edge in the post with Rakeem Christmas of Syracuse. Christmas though has been known to get in foul trouble early. Syracuse sharp shooter Trevor Cooney has also been known to go through his hot/cold stretches. Currently he has been on a hot stretch which has aided Syracuse’s offense immensely. But is that poor shooting night smack dab in front of us?

There are too many red-flags for me to lay the points with Syracuse on the road against Georgia Tech, and I can’t trust Georgia Tech’s on-court chemistry to befuddle the Syracuse zone.

This could be one of those games where the lead changes five to ten times. Keep this one off your board as the stay away game of the day.
