Against The Spread Pick
The sixth ranked team in the nation, The Duke Blue Devils, who hold a 22-4 record, take on Virginia Tech, who started off the season well, but have been on a cold streak lately. They have lost four of their last five games, while Duke has won four of their last five. Despite their last game being a blowout loss to NC state, Duke has continued to show all season that they are a contender for the national championship, and a middle of the pack team like Virginia Tech shouldn’t be a major threat tonight. Look for Duke to come out strong early, attempting to make up for their last game. Duke averages an impressive 82 points per game this season compared to Virginia Tech’s 71, and they are the 11th ranked defensive team in the nation. Tonight should be an easy one, go with Duke tonight.
Over Under Pick
Dukes 11th ranked defense and third ranked offense should certainly be able to hold Virginia Tech tonight, especially since they have failed to put up over 77 points in four of their last five games. I expect Duke to come out strong on defense and hold Virginia Tech to a minimal scoring night. Duke will have no problem in the scoring department, however, I don’t think that Virginia Tech will be able to produce enough to take the over. I would go with the under tonight.
