The surprising Duke Blue Devils will have their sights set on a spot in the AP Top 25 national rankings when they host the Miami Hurricanes in an ACC conference matchup on Friday at Wallace Wade Stadium. Duke remained unbeaten with last weekend’s 27-17 win at North Carolina while the 2-0 Hurricanes look to build on last week’s 52-30 rout of Toledo as 13-point home chalk.

  • The total has gone OVER in five of Miami’s last six games against Duke.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 12 of Duke’s last 15 games at home.
  • Duke is 6-0 ATS in its last six games at home.

The Blue Devils have emerged as the surprise squad in the ACC this season after opening with four straight decisive wins, including a pair of convincing victories as betting underdogs. Duke has also won seven straight at home, both SU and ATS, but is a middling 1-5 SU and 2-4 ATS in its past six conference matchups on home turf.

The Hurricanes showed no rust in their return to action following a two-week layoff in the aftermath of hurricane Irma.
