  • Sharp bettors have made their opinion clear on Saturday's ACC matchup between Syracuse (-3.5) and Pittsburgh.
  • Sports Insights' bet signals help reveal which side the wiseguys are playing.

With 12 minutes remaining, unranked Syracuse led No. 3 Clemson by 10 points last week … in football.

Undefeated Syracuse had been surprisingly impressive entering the game and had a majority of bettors backing it on the spread. But even the most bullish of Orange bettors didn’t expect Syracuse to contend for an outright win as a 25.5-point underdog.

Of course, Clemson scored 14 unanswered points and essentially won the game with less than a minute left.

While Syracuse fans were left heartbroken, bettors were provided with plenty of reasons to trust the Orange, and they’ve done just that again this weekend.

Following last week’s game, is backing Syracuse a smart bet once again?
