Duke Blue Devils improved to 22-6, 11-4 ACC after beating Syracuse at home 66-60 on Saturday night. On the season, Jabari Parker leads the Blue Devils with 19.2 points and 8.5 rebounds per game. Rodney Hood is averaging a solid 16.5 points per game, while Quinn Cook is averaging a team-high 5.2 assists per game. Amile Jefferson is averaging 7 points and 6.8 rebounds per game and has really helped Duke improve their rebounding numbers as the year has gone on. The Blue Devils are averaging an impressive 82.2 points per game while shooting 47.5% from the field as a team this season. Duke’s biggest weakness early on was the lack of size in the front court and their inability to rebound the basketball. What was once their weakness has become somewhat of a strength recently as they have outrebounded several of their conference opponents. The Blue Devils will be back at home where they haven’t lost all year.
I’ll make this short and simple, the Duke Blue Devils win big on Tuesday night. Take the first half spread and the game.
