Duke Looks To Get Back In Win Column vs NC State

NC State vs Duke Betting Odds

The Duke Blue Devils had a seven-game winning streak snapped in an 88-66 road loss to North Carolina State on February 19. Now the Blue Devils are hoping to snap out of a 1-3 SU and ATS slump with a win over the Wolfpack on Monday night.

Opening Odds Analysis

Both the line and total on this game have moved a half-point due to early action, with Duke going from a 13-point favorite to -12.5 and the total rising from its opener of 151 up to 151.5. NC State is a perfect 6-0 ATS in its last six games against Duke with four instances as a double-digit underdog over that stretch.

NC State News & Notes

North Carolina State is right on the bubble for an NCAA Tournament spot at 18-11 SU and 13-15-1 ATS on the season. The Wolfpack are a modest 5-6 SU and 4-7 ATS over their last 11 games, but those five wins include road upsets over Virginia and Syracuse and the blowout win at home over Duke. Those victories will likely be enough to send the Wolfpack to the dance, but they’d love to leave no doubt about it with another win over Duke in this one.

North Carolina State’s top four scorers in 2019-20 are upperclassmen. Seniors C.J. Bryce (13.4 points and 6.2 rebounds per game) and Markell Johnson (13.1 points and 6.5 assists per game) are leading the way. Johnson scored 28 points and grabbed nine rebounds in the Wolfpack’s last game against Duke.

Duke News & Notes

Duke is 13-2 SU and 8-7 ATS at home this season, including a current stretch of 5-0 SU and 3-2 ATS over its last five at home. It wouldn’t be too surprising to see the Blue Devils win their last two home games of the regular season against North Carolina State and North Carolina to build some momentum back up before heading into the ACC tournament.

But with three straight losses on the road and an 0-5 ATS record in their last five away from home, the Blue Devils have raised some concerns about their ability to win on the road ahead of the NCAA Tournament. Vernon Carey Jr. leads a Blue Devils offense that ranks fifth in the nation in scoring with 82.1 points per game and makes Duke a threat to beat anyone, but will its recent road woes carry over into March?

Betting Pick: NC State +12.5

Duke should get the outright win at home, but NC State’s 6-0 ATS winning streak against the Blue Devils should also be extended in a competitive game.
