Duke Virginia Preview

Duke @ Virginia
The Blue Devils biggest obstacle in this matchup will be looking ahead to North Carolina on Saturday night. The Cavaliers are coming off a hard fought road game on Monday night and have to turn around in 48 hours and play one of the most fundamentally sound teams in the country. Look for Duke to try and exploit Virginia's legs with a lot of pressing and fast break offense. Virginia's biggest weapon, Sean Singletary, will need to have a huge game in his second to last home game in Charlottesville for the Wahoos to pull this one off.
Prediction: Duke

Duke Virginia Line/Spread
Is Duke just a 2 or 3 loss ACC team? Well it looks that way unless Virginia can pull off the miracle. I think Duke wins this one 8 times out of 10, so I put them at around -400, but would go up to as high as -450. I would put Duke at around 8 to 10 point favorite.

Season: 64-19 (77%)
ACC: 33-11 (75%)
