Point Spread: +3½/-110 Syracuse

Sportsbook: Bookmaker

Result: Loss

There’s no rest for the defending national champions as the #11 Virginia Cavaliers will kick-off their title defense with a tough ACC matchup against the Syracuse Orange.

Its going to be very tough for Virginia to replace DeAndre Hunter, Kyle Guy, and Ty Jerome. That was about 70% of their offense.

Mamadi Kiakite could have gone into the draft after averaging 10.5 points, 8.2 rebounds, and 2.7 blocks per game in the NCAA Tournament, but he elected to return to Virginia.

Last year Syracuse finished 20-14 on the season and a loss to Baylor in the first round of the NCAA Tournament, Jim Boeheim will have his team ready at home and their offense may come down to Elijah Hughes, who averaged 13.7 points per game last season.
