Duke Has Been A Surprisingly Good UNDER Play

Despite producing a top-25 offense so far this season, the Duke Blue Devils have been a surefire UNDER play for bettors. Duke has gone UNDER in seven of its eight games with a listed total this season, as the Blue Devils have held opponents to 63.2 points per game. Duke takes on the Florida Gators in Madison Square Garden on Tuesday.

Shark Bites
  • Florida is 1-6 ATS in its last 7 games against the ACC.
  • The total has gone OVER in Florida's last 5 games as underdog.
  • Duke is 2-7 ATS in its last 9 games after losing the previous game in a matchup.

The cavalry is on the way for Duke, as freshman Marques Bolden and Jayson Tatum played their first game of the season on Friday against Maine. Both guys played under 20 minutes to ease them into the season, but produced well in limited time with Tatum tallying 10 points and eight rebounds and Bolden notching seven points and five rebounds.

Florida’s multi-faceted offense has been hard to contain, as KeVaughn Allen, Canyon Barry and Devin Robinson are all averaging over 11.5 points per game. The key in this game will be ball security, as the Gators are averaging more turnovers than steals this season.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick

If you were backing the Florida Gators in this one, their betting line was listed as 6-point underdogs earlier in the day at BetOnline.
