Who does the public like in this game?

N.C. State had a hard-fought win over Wake Forest on Tuesday and have to face Duke about 24 hours later.

Duke is also coming off a 76-72 loss at North Carolina last weekend and the Blue Devils are 6-2 ATS after a loss this season. Look for Duke to bounce back in a big way today.
