Opening Odds Analysis

Early action on Michigan State as a 5-point road underdog has bumped the line on this game down to Duke -3.5. The total has remained steady at 152 points. The OVER is 8-2 in the last 10 meetings between these two teams.

Michigan State News & Notes

Michigan State improved to 2-0 SU and 1-1 ATS on the season with a win and cover over the Notre Dame Fighting Irish on Saturday. Aaron Henry had 14 points, eight rebounds and four blocks in the win and Joey Hauser added 10 points and 16 rebounds. The Spartans are averaging 81.5 points per game out of the gate without a clear No. 1 option on offense, spreading the ball around well across a deep lineup.

Now they’ll get their first real test on the road against the Blue Devils. With so much experience in their starting rotation, the Spartans aren’t likely to be intimidated by facing a big-time opponent like Duke. Michigan State is now 7-0 SU and 5-2 ATS over its last seven games dating back to last season.

Duke News & Notes

The Blue Devils opened their season on Saturday against the Coppin State Eagles after having their original season opener against the Gardner-Webb Bulldogs postponed. Duke cruised to a 45-28 lead over the Eagles in the first half as 39.5-point favorites at home, but the Blue Devils took their foot off the gas in the second half and settled for an 81-71 win.

Prized recruit Jalen Johnson looked strong in his Blue Devils debut with 19 points, 19 rebounds, five assists and four blocks. Another freshman, DJ Steward, led the way in scoring with 24 points to go along with nine rebounds. Duke returns some solid talent as well this season, but per usual under head coach Mike Krzyzewski, this is going to be a freshmen-driven team.

Betting Pick: OVER 152 points

Both of these teams are loaded with offensive talent. This early in the season, it’s more likely we see the offenses shine through than the defenses – expect plenty of fireworks in this one.
