The Duke Blue Devils put up a fight against Arizona, while Michigan State lost to James Madison. These losses are not the same. Duke is simply the more talented team from top to bottom, and the Spartans are going to have issues keeping up if those shots keep falling. I'd need more points to get involved with Michigan State. The line is reasonable. Give me Duke with a statement victory.
