Duke is coming off an 82-78 loss at North Carolina this week for its third loss in four games. The Blue Devils are 19-5 overall, 7-4 in the ACC and 13-9 against the spread. Duke is averaging 89.1 points per game on offense while allowing 72.8 per contest. Marvin Bagley III is averaging 21.2 points and 11.4 rebounds per game to lead the team while Wendell Carter Jr. is adding 14.3 points and 9.4 rebounds per contest.
Georgia Tech is coming off a 77-54 loss at Louisville this week for its sixth loss in seven games. The Yellow Jackets are 11-13 on the season, 4-7 in the ACC and 10-10 against the spread. Tech is putting up just 65.6 points per game this season while allowing 65.8 per contest. Josh Okogie is leading the team with 18.4 points and 6.5 rebounds per game while Ben Lammers is adding 11.3 points and 8.6 rebounds per contest.
Duke has won 10 straight meetings in this series, covering in five of the last six meetings. The Blue Devils are in a funk, but playing Georgia Tech should be the boost they need. The Jackets don’t have an offense to contend with Duke and the GT defense isn’t good enough to stop this Duke offense. The public betting is strongly backing Duke on the road and I think the Blue Devils will cover as well.
