Duke has won three games in a row, including a 69-67 victory over the Maryland Terrapins as 13.5-point home favorites last Saturday, while going UNDER the betting total for the first time in five contests. The Blue Devils are 19-2 SU against unranked opponents this season, which is important to consider when making your college basketball betting picks. Offensively, the team has three players scoring in double figures, with freshman forward Jabari Parker leading the way at 19.3 points a contest. Duke is 7-1 ATS in its last eight ACC games.
The Blue Devils have won six games in a row against the Yellow Jackets and 30 of the past 33 meetings, which can’t be ignored when looking over the college basketball odds page. Duke has had a 20-point scorer in seven consecutive games against Georgia Tech, including Rodney Hood who scored 27 points in the first meeting this season. Parker and Hood combine to score 35.6 points per game—the 10th-highest combined scoring average in program history.
Georgia Tech snapped its two-game losing streak last time out, as it picked up a 74-71 victory over the Boston College Eagles as three-point home favorites, while going OVER the betting total of 139.5. The Yellow Jackets have played their entire conference schedule to date with no more than nine scholarship players—even sometime with as few as seven making it onto the floor. The program is 9-5 SU at McCamish Pavilion this season, but 2-4 versus conference foes. Georgia Tech is 10-24 ATS in its last 34 games following a win.
The Yellow Jackets are starting to get quality minutes again from Robert Carter Jr., who missed the first 10 ACC games due to a knee injury. He has played 20 combined minutes in the last two games, but Georgia Tech has now played two of its last three contests without the services of guard Trae Golden.
Sports bettors will likely back the Blue Devils due to the favorite being 19-7 ATS in the last 26 meetings in this series.
