In a game from NCAA Basketball, we will see Princeton at Duke.
The Princeton Tigers were able to snap a 2-game losing streak with a win over Iona last time out. However, this time the task will certainly be a lot tougher and I doubt that they will have any chance against Duke, except for putting a respectable performance by losing by no more than 20 points. Princeton is averaging 72.8 points per game on 42% shooting from the field. Defensively, the Tigers are allowing 70 points per game.
The Duke Blue Devils are going for a 10th win in their first 11 games. They conceded a single loss to Gonzaga and they have shown so far in the season that they are much better than anyone else in college basketball and they also have talent both in the starting line-up and on the bench. Offensively, they are averaging 93 points per game while allowing just 65.7 on defense.
I know that the line is a bit high but the Blue Devils are able to cover it on any given night, regardless of the squad against them. I’m picking Duke to cover the spread because even the bench players will have an easy time on the court.
