A massive early-season conference matchup will be coming for the Duke basketball team.
It was an unsettling yet predictable return to the court for the Duke basketball program after nearly another two-week layoff due to COVID-19.
The No. 2 Blue Devils (12-1, 2-0 ACC) were able to hold to defeat Georgia Tech on Tuesday night at Cameron Indoor despite no offensive rhythm, yet the task will get more difficult with a confident and hot Miami Hurricanes (12-3, 4-0 ACC) team coming into Durham.
Miami has rattled off eight wins in a row, four ACC games during that streak, but this will be the first road conference game of the season for the ‘Canes.
It will also be the first road game since December 1 when the Hurricanes defeated Penn State.
Miami is led by the backcourt trio of Kameron McGusty, Isaiah Wong, and Charlie Moore, who combine to average 46.6 points per game.
Wong scored 16 points last season in Miami’s win over Duke.
Duke Injury Report vs. Miami (FL)
After its pause due to COVID-19, the Blue Devils had their entire roster available to them on Tuesday night against Georgia Tech, and that should carry into Saturday’s game against the Hurricanes.
There are no known injures to report for Duke.
Duke vs. Miami (FL) Odds: Spread, Over/Under & Betting Pick
WynnBET’s College Basketball Odds lists Duke as a 15-point favorite against Georgia Tech at home while the over/under is set at 154.
Duke looked shaky in its return to action against Georgia Tech, and it will take a while for the Blue Devils to get back in the rhythm they had prior to the virus shutdown.
Miami is playing with a lot of confidence, and it will not be as daunting of a task to come into Cameron Indoor Stadium, without the true student body, and try to win a basketball game.
We will take Miami to cover the spread, but Duke to win the game outright, and the total to go under the number listed.
