SGG Picks of the Day, Sept. 24

VIRGINIA -3 vs WAKE FOREST (-115 DK)
Although Wake Forest is 3-0 this season and has outscored their opponents by a total of 80-40, they have not played a road game this season. Virginia will be tough at home. After losing last week at North Carolina by 20, they will also be eager to ramp up the energy tonight. I like Virginia giving the points at home. Another fun sprinkle in this game would be to take the over 68.5 (-110 DK). Virginia has loved to both gain and allow a ton of yards on the season. Plus, both teams are averaging well over 35 points per game.

SYRACUSE +6.5 vs LIBERTY (-110 DK)
Two words. Home. Dogs. Although Liberty handled their business at Syracuse last season (they won easily 38-21), I don’t trust the mid-major to walk into a power five school to do it again. I get that Liberty was phenomenal last season and has gotten off to a nice start this year (albeit against nobody). That said, I like the Orange to cover in this one. With fans in the stands to keep the team energized, Syracuse will keep things close.


MGM MLB Offer

YANKEES at RED SOX Under 9 (-115 DK)
This pick is based purely on the pitching matchup. Gerrit Cole (15-8, 3.03 ERA) faces off against Nathan Eovaldi (10-8, 3.58 ERA). In his last start, Cole got shelled allowing seven earned runs on 10 hits over 5.2 innings pitched. That type of performance will not happen twice in a row from the current AL Cy Young frontrunner. In the month of September, Eovaldi has been rock solid pitching to a 2.70 ERA. Against the Yankees this year, he possesses a 2.01 ERA over five starts. Runs will be scarce.
