Florida State Duke Betting Preview

The last time these ACC rivals met, Florida State was earning a buzzer-beating 76-73 victory to end the Blue Devils’ 45-game winning streak at Cameron Indoor Stadium.

Now with both teams ranked in the Top 15 and with an ACC crown on the line, they meet again in Florida with visiting Duke a small road favorite.

The No. 5 rated Blue Devils and the No. 15 ranked Seminoles have each enjoyed buzzer-beating moments lately. And the college basketball point spread of 2 points seems about right here.
