College Basketball Betting Trends


The Blue Devils are 7-1 ATS in their last eight Tuesday games. Duke is 2-5 ATS in its last seven games versus the ACC. 


The Panthers are 5-1 ATS in their last six home games. Pittsburgh is 17-5-1 ATS in its last 23 games overall.


A normal team might have a letdown after such a big home win, but Duke is no ordinary team. The Blue Devils are healthy aside from the Tre Jones injury and as long as Williamson plus Barrett are in the fold, they have the ability to dominate anyone even on the road. The Panthers already have an 85-60 loss at home to North Carolina, so hanging with Duke doesn't seem very likely. Take the favorites here.
