Michigan State Looks To Exorcise Duke Demons

The top two ranked teams in the nation are set to face off at the Champions Classic, as the Duke Blue Devils meet the Michigan State Spartans on Tuesday. Michigan State will be looking for redemption, as the program has lost its past six games against Duke dating back to December 2010.

Shark Bites
  • Michigan State is 1-3 ATS in its last 4 games against Duke.
  • Duke is 11-0 SU in its last 11 games against the Big Ten.
  • The total has gone OVER in 7 of Michigan State’s last 8 games against Duke.

Duke picked up a 78-69 victory over Michigan State when these two powerhouses met in last season’s non-conference schedule. Grayson Allen carried the Blue Devils offensively, as the then-junior scored a game-high 24 points.

Allen has been doing more of the same this young season with the controversial player averaging 20 points per game and shooting 57.7 percent from the floor. However, it has been highly touted freshman Marvin Bagley who has been the star for Duke. Bagley, the top recruit in the nation, has recorded a double-double in each of his first two collegiate outings.

Michigan State has had just one game this season, overwhelming North Florida. The powerhouse duo of Miles Bridges and Jaren Jackson Jr. combined for 33 points and 23 rebounds. However, the Spartans were far from perfect, as the team shot 3-for-12 from beyond the arc and had 21 turnovers.
