UNDER Commonplace When Duke, Florida State Clash

Two top 10 ranked opponents clash for conference supremacy, as the Duke Blue Devils travel to Tallahassee on Tuesday to take on the Florida State Seminoles. Books have seemed to overestimate how much offense these two teams bring against each other, as the UNDER has hit in the past five between Duke and FSU.

Shark Bites
  • Duke is 7-2 SU in its last 9 games on the road against Florida State.
  • Florida State is 9-0 SU and 7-2 ATS in its last 9 games against teams with winning records.
  • Duke is 8-0 SU in its last 8 games on the road after consecutive home games.

Duke will be short-handed in this outing, as legendary coach Mike Krzyzewski and senior Amile Jefferson will not be at the game. Coach K underwent back surgery this past Friday and is out for an indefinite amount of time. Jeff Capel, who will be the acting head coach, has been with Duke in a coaching capacity since 2011. Jefferson, who leads the team in rebounds and is second in points scored, is dealing with a bruised foot and will not play. 

FSU has held opponents to just 64.5 ppg during an 11-game winning streak, which includes an impressive 93-78 victory over Virginia Tech in their last outing. Dwayne Bacon has been the focal point of the ’Noles offense with the sophomore scoring double-digit points in 25 consecutive games.
