In a game from NCAA Basketball, we will see Duke at Notre Dame.
Duke has won 10 of its 11 games in the NCAAB and they are playing with a ton of confidence at the moment. The Blue Devils are averaging 87.4 points per game on 48.2 percent shooting from the floor and allowing 66.2 points on 38.8 percent shooting. RJ Barrett continues to improve his stock and he is now averaging 24 points per game and 6.9 rebounds while Zion Williamson is adding 21.7 points and 2.3 assists.
The Notre Dame Fighting Irish lost 6 of their last 7 games and things don’t look good for them at that point of the season. The team is averaging 73 points per game on 40.7 percent shooting from the floor and allowing 69.4 points on 42.2% shooting. John Mooney is averaging 14.5 points and 10.8 rebounds while TJ Gibbs is adding 13.4 points per game and 3.9 assists. The Fighting Irish have won 3 of their 6 home games this season.
Even though Duke has been a little shaky with Tre Jones out of the starting line-up, we must have in mind that the Fighting Irish are just coming off a game where they allowed 82 points to a Virginia squad that struggles to score. I expect Duke not to have any problems covering the spread in this one.
