Randy’s Free Pick

The Duke Blue Devils are getting the benefit of the doubt here because they’re at home, but how many times are oddsmakers going to disrespect Miami. All the Canes have done this season is win games and cover numbers, and that includes on the road, where they win by an average of 6.4 points. Miami has the offense to even squeeze out an outright victory. Give me the road dog.
