Duke cruised to a 94-60 victory Saturday at home over Notre Dame to move to 22-3 overall and 12-2 in the conference. The Blue Devils outscored the Fighting Irish 52-28 in the second half to put it away. Vernon Carey Jr. led Duke with 21 points on 8-of-10 shooting including 1-of-1 from 3-point range plus 4-of-5 at the free throw line.

Alex O'Connell added 12 points, five rebounds, four steals and three assists.

Wolfpack fall at Eagles

College Basketball Betting Trends

Duke

The favorite is 0-5 ATS in the last five meetings. The road team is 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings. 

North Carolina State

The Wolfpack are 2-0 ATS in the last two meetings. North Carolina State is 55-79 ATS since 1997 in home games when playing a team with a winning record after 15 or more games.

Prediction:

The Blue Devils are riding high right now, but have not exactly been dominant on the road. I think that could change here as the Wolfpack are coming off a loss to a subpar Boston College squad and lost by 16 last year at Duke. The Blue Devils are coming off a dominant win and my gut tells me that incredible play continues for another night. Duke is still in the running for a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament and it cannot take games like this lightly.
