Bet on Florida State vs. Duke

Duke is struggling but Florida State is a poor road team. The Seminoles are drastically worse on the road, especially on offense. That should help Duke, who is pretty strong defensively at home, allowing opponents to shoot just 27 percent from the arc. Even if Allen is out, Duke still has plenty of offensive talent. The Blue Devils shoot nearly 50 percent at home.
