College Basketball: Streaks, Tips, Notes 

Florida Atlantic at Duke

Duke at the wrong end of a 94-83 decision vs Kansas in the Champions Classic marking just the second November loss in six plus years (41-2, 25-14-2 ATS) look to bounce back when they take on Florida Atlantic of the CUSA. Duke takes each defeat seriously and are not to be messed with off a loss. Friday, the Blue Devils hit the hardwood a sparkling 16-0 (11-5 ATS) following a regular season loss. With Blue Devils 3-0 (2-1 ATS) vs a CUSA foes and Owls 0-9 (4-5 ATS) vs the ACC the choice is Duke.
