Duke vs. Iona Key Injuries: Duke - (F) Wendell Carter Jr. is upgraded to probable Thursday vs Iona ( Ankle ), (G) Trevon Duval is upgraded to probable Thursday vs Iona ( Ankle ). Iona - no key injuries

Who We Like: Duke is certainly a talented team and may be the most talented team in this whole field. However, the Blue Devils have had their poor showings during the season. Today it faces an Iona team with absolutely nothing to lose and the Gaels are going to give Duke their best shot. History even shows Duke being susceptible to an upset in the first round as well. I think the Blue Devils will win, but covering this big of a spread seems like much to expect. Iona is 9-3 against the spread away from home and I expect them to keep this game reasonable.
