Do you really want to bet against Duke right now? While only Michigan State has been a strong opponent, the Blue Devils have won each of their last seven games by at least 12 points. Georgia Tech is a vulnerable team that might be coming in a little too confident after its win over a struggling UNC squad. Duke is capable of humbling the Yellow Jackets fast.
