The Duke Blue Devils and the Oregon State Beavers meet in college basketball action from the Veterans Memorial Coliseum on Thursday night.

The Duke Blue Devils will try to build on their 74-57 win over Bellarmine last time out. Kyle Filipowski leads Duke in scoring and rebounding, averaging a double-double per game with 15.6 PPG and 10.4 RPG while Jeremy Roach has 12.2 PPG with a team-high 3.6 APG to lead the Blue Devils in the assist department up to this point in the year. Mark Mitchell has 11.6 PPG with 3.8 RPG to round out the trio of double-digit scorers for Duke up to this point in the season. As a team, Duke is averaging 77 PPG on 44.3% shooting from the field, 33.6% from behind the arc and 76.5% from the foul line this season.

The Oregon State Beavers will be out to bounce back from a 79-66 loss to Portland State last time out. Glenn Taylor Jr. leads the Beavers in scoring with 16.3 PPG along with 3 RPG and 2.5 APG while Jordan Pope has 15.5 PPG with a team-high 3.8 APG to lead the Beavers in the assist department up to this point in the year. Dexter Akanno has 10.8 PPG and 3.3 APG to cap off the trio of double-digit scorers for Oregon State coming into this game. Rodrigue Andela also has 8 PPG and a team-high 7 RPG to lead the Beavers on the glass this season. As a team, Oregon State is averaging 70.5 PPG on 47% shooting from the field, 25.4% from three and 75.9% from the foul line this season.

Duke is 8-1-1 ATS in their last 10 Thursday games and 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600 while the over is 8-3 in their last 11 neutral site games. Oregon State is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 8-2 ATS in their last 10 neutral site games while the over is 21-5 in their last 26 games following a double-digit home loss.

I get the case to be made for Oregon State as a pseudo-home underdog in this spot with this game still being played in Oregon, but the problem for the Beavers is that they’re up against one of the best teams in the country with a 3-1 record from a cupcake schedule. Duke is the better team by a couple of levels here and I just think that the Blue Devils end up running circles around Oregon State. Give me Duke in a rout.
