Duke vs. Notre Dame Free Pick
No. 19 Duke looks to avenge a prior loss to Notre Dame when the two meet up today at 2PM ET in the ACC Tournament. Can the Irish upset the Blue Devils again?
According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Duke is favored in this contest, as the Blue Devils are getting odds of -2.5 points against the Irish. The over/under total for the game has yet to be set. These two meet in the quarterfinals of the ACC Tournament, which takes place from the Verizon Center in Washington D.C.
Duke is 23-9 overall, 12-7 in ACC games, 3-2 on a neutral floor and 13-16-2 against the spread. Notre Dame is 20-10 overall, 11-7 in the Big Ten, 1-3 on a neutral court and 13-14-1 against the spread. Notre Dame has won and covered the spread in four of its last five against Duke, including in a 95-91 win at Duke back on Jan. 16.
Duke has struggled to string together wins over the last few weeks. They have alternated wins and losses over their last seven games and are coming off a 92-89 win over N.C. State last night. The Blue Devils have also failed to cover in four straight. The Irish have covered in their last two games as an underdog and will be the fresher of the two teams, especially with Duke having a thin bench and Marshall Plumlee dealing with a nose injury he suffered on Wednesday. Look for the Irish to pick up a win today.
