Arizona vs. Duke CBB Prediction:
Duke and Arizona both have big hopes this season, and for such a heavyweight battle to occur so early in the season, both schools may come into one a bit tense. This game may be played at a slow pace to prevent any massive, game-swinging run, so I like targeting the magic number a lot here. The Duke fan in me believes we’ll bring it home, but the Under may just bring a bit more security here in this high-profile matchup.
