Duke opened as a 2.5-point underdog versus Kentucky but according to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Blue Devils are now just a 2-point dog. Our College Basketball Public Betting page shows that of the wagers that are currently on tonight's 7:30PM ET contest, 52% of public bettors are backing Duke +2.

Although the Blue Devils lost 6-11 Jahlil Okafor as well as Justise Winslow, they still feature a couple of big men in 7-footers Marshall Plumlee and freshman Antonio Vrankovic. Duke will have its hands full tonight with 6-foot-11 freshman Skal Labissiere, who leads Kentucky with an average of 17.5 points through two games.

The Blue Devils are a perfect 6-0 against the spread in their last six neutral site games and are 8-1 ATS in their last non-conference games, while the Wildcats are just 5-15-1 at the betting window in their last 21 games versus the ACC.
