Stephen Nover's Big Ten Big Ticket
(NCAAF) Rutgers vs. Syracuse, 09/11/2021 2:00 PM, Score: 17 - 7
Money Line: -125.00 Rutgers (Away)
Result: Win
I like what Greg Schiano is doing at Rutgers. The won/lost results haven't been there for the Scarlet Knights, but I see that changing this season after several strong recruiting classes.

Rutgers certainly looked good in destroying Temple, 61-14, last week. I understand Temple is weak, but the Owls were supposed to be improved this year.

The line is short here because Syracuse also was impressive during opening week, taking out Ohio, 29-9, as a short road 'dog. Now, though, the Orangemen go from a MAC team to a Big Ten opponent. Syracuse has failed to cover the past five times following a victory.

I've never been a fan of Syracuse QB Tommy DeVito and he doesn't have good offensive line protection either.

Rutgers has covered in its last five road games.
