William & Mary vs. Duke Pick
Will tonight's William & Mary and Duke game at 7:00PM ET be low-scoring for bettors?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Blue Devils are now 22.5-point home favorites versus the Tribe after opening as a 21-point favorite. As for the total, the number opened at 156 and that's where it currently sits at most online and Vegas sports books.
WILLIAM & MARY KEY TRENDS: The Tribe is just 1-5-1 at the betting window in its last seven games versus ACC opponents and is winless at 0-5 against the spread in its last five games coming off a win. William & Mary is also 2-5 against the number in its last seven road games versus a team with a winning home record and is 1-5 ATS in its last six road games versus a team with a home wining percentage of greater than .600.
DUKE KEY TRENDS: The Blue Devils have not been a great play at the window over their last 12 games, covering just three times over that span. They're also just 1-4-1 against the spread in their last six home games versus an opponent with a losing record and are winless at 0-6-1 at the betting window in their last seven games coming off a successful cover in their previous game.
OUR PREDICTION: Instead of laying the big number on the home favorite or rolling the dice with an underdog that has no shot of winning, take a look at the total. The under is a perfect 5-0 in the Tribe's last five games and is 5-0 in its last five road games as well. The under is 4-1 in William & Mary's last five non-conference games and is 6-0 in Duke's last six non-conference tilts. The under is also 4-0 in the Blue Devils' last four home games and is 19-7 in their last 26 games overall.
