Duke Blue Devils
The Blue Devils are just 2-5 against the spread in their last seven games overall and have failed to cover in four straight road games.
The Cavaliers are 3-0-1 against the number in their last four games overall but are just 4-10 against the spread in their last 14 home games.
I don’t like either side tonight and while it’s tough to take the over in any Virginia game, I do like taking the over in a Duke matchup with the total this low. The over is a perfect 5-0 in the Blue Devils’ last five games when they’re coming off a loss, is 5-1 in their last six road games and is 20-7 in their last 27 games overall. The over is also 19-7 in Duke’s last 26 games when favored and is 7-3 in Virginia’s last 10 home games when hosting an opponent that owns a road winning percentage of greater than .600.
