The over is 4-0 in Panthers last 4 overall. The over is 4-1 in Blue Devils last 5 home games. The road team is 6-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings.

The Duke Blue Devils are the more talented side, but they’ve come up short against the number lately and are going up against a battle tested squad. The Pittsburgh Panthers are off to a great start, and they’ve shown they can win on the road. Pitt is also losing in the underdog role by an average of just 1.9 points. I’ll take a shot with the free buckets.
