Phil Steele picks Huskies to beat Syracuse

But not by much as he envisions a 24-23 UW win Friday night.
I got that prediction out of his publication Power Sweep which gives its readers some helpful guidance for whatever reason they might want said guidance.
I got a promo copy in the mail and thought his UW pick comments were interesting.
Power Sweep writes that “Syracuse is 8-16 in home openers (against the spread) but 28-8 ATS vs non-conf foes including 6-0 at home, and UW is 0-3-1 ATS on the road vs. non-conf. UW has a freshman QB making his first start across the country and in a dome. The Huskies are the stronger team but SU has the situational edge and the ST (special teams) edge. UW is a poor 0-4 ATS as an AF (away favorite) and has not been one in four years so you can’t lay too many points.”
Take it for what it’s worth.
UPDATE — What I should have pointed out originially is that this pick is a little bit of a punt. Since Washington is currently favored by three, Steele is still picking the Orange to cover, but UW to win straight up.
As to the question of whether any of these line-related numbers mean anything, I just think certain trends are always interesting. I also always find picks from people who truly have only their pocket book at heart to be pretty enlightening, as well.
