College Basketball Betting Trends


The Hurricanes are 4-1 ATS in their last five Saturday games. Miami is 3-7 ATS in its last 10 road games.


The Blue Devils are 2-5 ATS in their last seven home games. Duke is 1-4 ATS in its last five ACC games.


Williamson is going to miss his third straight game today, which has impacted the line by maybe up to five points. But today will be the first Duke home game since he was hurt at home in the first minute against rival North Carolina. While the Blue Devils had some shellshock that day, they should be more adjusted today and able to ride the wave of the Cameron Crazies. Duke is still a super talented team and are playing a Miami squad that just lost at lowly Wake Forest. Give the points and take the Dukies.
