Duke is 3-10 ATS in their last 13 games overall and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games while the under is 5-1-1 in their last 7 games overall.
I’m going to take a shot on Louisville here. Duke’s a solid team and Cameron Indoor’s a tough place to go on the road and compete let alone try to win if you’re a Louisville team that’s been beat up left and right this season. However, Louisville’s been competitive lately and while this is a talented Duke team, it’s still a Duke team that lacks a killer instinct and hasn’t necessarily blown teams out lately. It wouldn’t shock anyone if Louisville got dismantled here, but I’m not trying to lay this many points with this Duke team. I’ll take Louisville and the points.
